Having a radar detector in your car would be convenient. You can cruise on the highway at 85 miles per hour in a 65 zone with no fear of getting caught. However, I know that once I get used to having one in my car I might get addicted. Every time I get a new car I will always have a detector in it and I'll have one all the way up until I get married and have kids. Where I am in my life now, there is no problem with having a radar detector but I wouldn't my kids to see me driving with one in my car and I know I wouldn't be able to give the detectors up once I became reliant on them. The reason why I wouldn't want my kids to see me with one in my car and why I am against them in other cars is because it sets the example that the reason why we obey the speed limit is to avoid the legal ramifications and not because speeding is a safety issue. I would not want my children to grow up thinking that breaking the speed limit by 20 miles per hour is OK as long as they don't get caught. As much as getting a ticket sucks, the laws are there to protect you.
