Avoiding A Speeding Ticket

Few things can make you feel chilled all over like cresting a hill a little too fast and seeing Mr. State Trooper waiting on you.
I’ve often wondered if it was possible to send the location of known speed traps to a web-site and a quick Google Search reveals several, such as www.speedtrap.org . Those are okay, but real time information would be much better since local and state governments are desperate for cash and are using any way possible to get it, companies and consumers are fighting back.
That’s where PhantomALERT  steps in. PhantomALERT  is software that claims to help avoid tickets by alerting the user when there are red light cameras, speed traps or dangerous curves ahead. The software can be downloaded to any GPS device or smartphone . Knowing where a red light camera is located could possibly help you avoid an accident.
What has really surprised me in my research about the product is the amount of police support it receives. One officer said that he wasn’t in the business of writing tickets, but in making sure people drove more safely. He believes that PhantomALERT  does that.
I haven’t bought their service yet, but I am impressed by it. They offer a lifetime unlimited access to their services (currently listing over 110,000 areas to slow down) for only $99.99 and I’m thinking about using it.
If you DO get pulled over, use these ideas and maybe, you’ll avoid a ticket (I’ve gotten out of 8 tickets in the last few years taking these steps):
Yes, I really have gotten out of eight tickets in the last few years using these steps. Twice I was pulled over in work zones (one time I was going 60 mph in a 50 mph zone and another I was going 73 mph in a 45 mph zone). I’ve been pulled over at night, on two-lane roads, on interstate highways, by local police, sheriff’s deputies, and by state troopers. I drive 30,000 miles per year and at some point, I’m going to get pulled over … again … but PhantomALERT  could be what keeps me from getting in trouble in the first place!
Have you used PhantomALERT ? What was your experience?
