Somewhere in the UK they just figured out that young people will try and get the roadside radar detectors to go bonkers - they try to ge the highest reading possible.
Oh yes, I would be guilty of this one - in my younger days ( which was not that long ago, of course ). When I had my T-Top Z28 ( a total just-graduated-girl car ) I would totally STOMP it and see just how high I could get the thing to read. Everyone I knew ( of the same age ) did the same thing.
