...takes a deep breath...

Ahem...dude..do you mind changing the topic of this thread?

And how about just driving A COUPLE of miles over the speed limit..instead of 17.

I think that would eliminate MOST of your problems...not to mention the fact that just because you get a detector..that doesn't mean that you won't get anymore tickets.

Anyways,

The easiest way would be to route it through your console...as you actually remove that pretty easily and have access straight to a power source that way.

As for your "F*CK THE POLICE" statement..maybe you should adjust that too.

We do HAVE cops that drop by every now and again...plus people that are friends with them.

I'd hate for you to give LarryD's hard work a bad name.

Please go drive off a very high enbankment and make sure your seatbelt is not buckled before you go off the road. Thanks.

You do know there's only one * is f*ck, right? <IMG SRC="http://www.newcelica.org/ubb/smilies/cwm13.gif" border=0>

Why are you even saying something like that? 17 over? Hmmmm. Wait, let me guess. It's all the officer's fault. He came up from behind you and pushed you up to 87. Then he slowed back down to 70, did a double take and acted like he just noticed you, and turned his lights on. Man, that happens so often that people should really start to expect it. Gets 'em every time.

I used to not understand why people with sporty cars hated cops so much. I always thought that those kids were the ones doing things to deserve it but boy was I wrong.

Most Cops are P*ssy a$$ b*tches. good cops are diminishing. They are not here to protect and serve. They are here to make money for the government and play a power trip on your ass!.
guess what happened to me the other day, I was pulled over at around 10:30. I was followed by this cop car who had no business doing that in the first place because I wasn't speeding nor violating any laws.
Pulls me over, saying how I seem lost and sh*t and says he'll cite me for loitering.
I was driving normally to get to my house from work.
can you believe this garbage?
and to top it off, the cop says that it's illegal for me to lower my car.
He got me so pissed off , I screamed at him from the top of my lungs. He then left as he saw I was fed up with his garbage and ready to throw down.
I used to be intimidated by cops but I said f*ck that if they're gonna make silly excuses just to hassle you.

You guys are talking outta your ass.

I personally know ALOT of cops..hell..I work with ALOT of cops.

Half the 446th SFS Reserve Squadron here are cops from practically all over the whole entire state of Washington.

When I was in Sacramento..I knew the CHP's, Sacramento Sheriff's Department...and alotta of other counties..

When I was in Hawaii..I knew everyone from corrections officers to the Honolulu Police Department..

And when I was in Texas...I knew alot of the central Texas counties sheriff's departments.

Hell..what am I saying..I still know them..

Hell..I even help with Sky Marshalls..

I KNOW ALOT OF COPS...and yes..not all of them are the BEST guys you'd wanna hang out with..some are assholes..just like you and me..and you can't tell me we don't have alotta assholes on this board....look at the way you guys talk to each other sometimes, as an example.

Cops are people too...remember that.

BUT...bad cops are cops are just that...bad cops..that are few and far inbetween.

I can honestly sit here and tell you that I've met alot, rode with alot, and know alot of cops..and they're ALL pretty damn good guys...who care and respect the law..and care about YOU..and the people on the roads.

You people just don't get it do you? I can send you HUNDREDS OF STORIES of how good cops have pulled people over in hot rods, imports, what have you...and ended up being shot to death by some punk ass who's afraid of a ticket.

Sure..it may seem like profiling...but hell..who's more common to speed, race, and possibly injure or kill someone else?

A grandma in a corolla..or some dude in a slammed import with mods that are MEANT for racing?

Now..some of these stories sound a bit harsh for a cop..but after having as much experience as I've had with people who've gotten pulled over and given tickets:

There's always two sides to the story....one story..from the guy who got pulled over..and the other from the COP who pulled him over.

What..are you guys gonna admit that you were doing something illegal? Are you gonna say..yeps..I was doing an illegal left hand turn?

Do you guys even realize what you could be written up for? Have you ever looked at a state Vehicle Code?

Did you know..that the vehicle code is not LAW? It's a contract...validated BY YOU..when you recieve and sign your drivers license..

It means you vow to obey the rules and regulations set forth in that vehicle code book.

In other words...if you **** up...that cop has every right to nail you for every single thing in the book if he so desires..

And trust me..there's a helluva lot to write you up for.

I've been given 3 tickets so far since I've been driving..and you know what? Two of them were in my Celica....but you know what...I ****ed up. I made an illegal turn on one...and I was going 15 over the speed limit in the other.

Get real...those cops are here to protect you believe it or not.

You guys make it seem like every cop that pulls you over is a bad guy..well that's utter nonsense.

If you ONLY knew what someone had to go through to become a COP..you wouldn't even think that.

Jeezus.

Well, I am sorry bout the thread name i was just mad. I know i was speeding so was like the other 10 cars around me. I get picked out of the crowd. I know there are nice cops but down here they are rare i only know of 1. I never even been giving a warning always just a ticket. They are on power trips. They think they have the right to speed whenever the want and still our tickets pay their paychecks.

So how do i remove the dash?

I know Im going to regret this but.... Ive had my car over a year now and I have never been pulled over *knock on wood* and I do my share of driving over the speed limit. I dont even have a radar detector. I just consider myself lucky as hell I guess. Also I dont freak out when a cop comes up behind me or is beside me at a light. I do hate when you see a cop come up behind you and hes like 10 mph over the speed limit and you think well he is going somewhere but doesnt have his lights on. Then you see him stop at a stop light so you know he isnt going anywhere that important.

Sorry guys but, when any of you have been hospitalized by a cop, after being draged out of your vehicle for resisting a search without cause (which is your right BTW) at 2:00 am in "bad" neighborhood... you can talk to me about how you had an encounter with a "bad cop". Until then, shut up....

Profiling happens, deal with it. You made the car look like that, expect the extra attention you'll get. I haven't been pulled over for a valid reason yet, thus no tickets so far. As long as you cooperate, all they wanna do is talk, and find out if they need to worry about you... Most of the time anyway.

Obey the law's, and you won't get tickets. Profound statement huh?

I swear some of you guys must enjoy getting speeding tickets. After the 3rd or 4th ticket you never learn. And the amount of money I've seen that some of you guys dish out in unreal.

Another thing. When you get pulled over by a cop and he sees your radar detector sitting on your dash it's an instant ticket. Cops figure that if you have one you are speeding all the time.

Now the next time you get pulled over for anything the best thing to do is keep your mouth shut and play dumb.

I've been pulled over 4 times since I've owned my Celica and that's only been for 5 months. Once for having no front plate. Once for rolling through a stop sign and twice for speeding. The last time was for doing 77 in a 40 on a mile long exit ramp coming off the highway. Hell everyone speeds coming off that ramp and guess who gets pulled over the guy in the sports car.

Did I get a ticket? Nope, haven't gotten a ticket in over 6 years. If you have a clean lisence, mosts cops (at least where I live) will just let you off with a warning unless you are doing some stupid like weaving in and out of traffic, get pulled over by the same cop in the next few days, or start mouthing off. Once you record has been stained it will cost you every time you get pulled over.

Now I don't if you live in a big city or a small town but most small towns make all their money from issueing tickets. So if your driving through a small town at night and a cop is following you set your cruise control to 30 mph and crawl through there. Most often the cop will just get annnoyed with you and pull off and turn around.

The worst thing is your insurance will go up. You ever wonder why insurance companies always donate radar equipment to the police?

And remember all sports cars are cop magnets.

no not necessarily. In big cities like New Your, L.A. cops are bound to get corrupted.
If u do even a tiny bit wrong they will get you. Compare for instance, parking ticket enforcers.
In big cities, they are like cockroaches, giving the most posible tickets they could.
But in small cities they might be more lenient.
So I understand why, people in bigger cities complain about cops being jerk it's because most of them are. The rookies tend to be nicer but as their job becomes routine, they lose focus of the reason they became a cop.

Actually...

You've got it backwards..

Rookies are notorious for being big on the lawbook, and writing you down without a second thought.

The veterans are the ones that slow down, and relax.

They know what's up...where a rookie will go spaztic becuase they just got outta the academy and are power crazy.

F**k cops. Most of the ones that I have run into are assholes. I will take a ticket if I am speeding but they just add insult to injury. They harrass people all the time and get away with it. Most cops just treat people like ****. Just recently a cop told me and few other celica owner to leave a parking lot because someone made a false complaint. They told use to get real muscle cars instead of the vacuumm cleaner we we're driving. Me and a lot of people hate cops. Its not because of stupid traffic tickets but because of harrassment, insults, & using their position to do wrong. F**k cops.

Did you know..that the vehicle code is not LAW? It's a contract...validated BY YOU..when you recieve and sign your drivers license.."

So what you're saying is that if I don't ever get a permit/license, I can't get a ticket because I didn't "agree to follow the rules of the contract" If this was true I would have never gotten my license. The only thing I could be cited for would be diving without a lisence; correct?

When I was 14, I got pulled over for doing 30 in a 25 and rolling a stop sign, as well as driving without a lisence...came to like $400.

They are laws, not contract sections.
