    If it pops up again I'll click on it and question them....as in wouldn't it be illegal to sell something that is illegal to use ? unless you just sit it on your bedside table of course.

    Not illegal to sell, like many other things, but to put them into use is illegal in most states, you would need to check current state legislation.
    Most traffic cars and bikes will have radar detector detectors fitted.

    Unmarked black motorcycles. 'Harder to see' according to many. Once these become a 'recognized threat' you'll be amazed how much eyesight improves .. at least for black motorcycles.

    I've mentioned this before here. In the 80's I bought an ex-cop Z1000. Black with white pinstripes. At the time I wore a black leather jacket and white full face helmet. I was amazed how many drivers could suddenly see me, everyone gave way to me, drivers would slow down when they saw me. It was great. They can see you when they need to.

    I had a mate with a white RS BM when cops had white RT's, that and a white fullface seemed to make him Very Visible.
    Conversely, I acquired a very flashy and very noisy harley almost by accident, I hated it but persisted with trying to 'Get It' for three months.
    All drivers knew exactly where I was at, the disconcerting thing was none of them were looking where they should have been.

    The difference between exceeding the speed limit by 10km/h and not hitting anyone, and hitting someone at 60km/h instead of 50km/h, could be compared to the difference between swinging an axe and not hitting anyone, and swinging an axe and hitting someone.

    And if I'd been doing 60kmh instead of 50 for the last 5km I'd be way past the point of hypothetical contact

    Not if your speeding has actually placed you in a position to have the accident, which you wouldn't have if you had travelled at the speed limit.

    An oldie, but a goodie ...



    And (in this case) wipe off another 5km/h, and most likely the crash would not have happened.
