The how part was tough. I said through radar and explained it best I could using an Echo as an example. The wierd thing is she kind of got it.
What I STILL have problems explaining to people is that rader detectors are RADER detectors. Not Police detectors. I get so pissed when people are saying, "You paid $399 for that detector and it can't filter out false signals?"
ARGHH. Radar is radar, It's doing it's job by finding it. In may case I have a V1 so it's position locators, strength, and bogie count, assist in confirming the threat.
: i've thought about "it lets daddy know if he's going too fast", but she knows what the speedometer is for, plus, she'll know the truth soon enough and i don't want her to look back and remember me bending the truth with her; at the same time i can't possibly be up front about it. does this mean i have to trade in the ///M for a nice minivan?
