Recently a friend and I were talking about things that you see very often in or on cars. Seats, lighters and antennas outside. Another thing I feel like I haven’t seen in a while is a radar detector. If there is one in the car, are speed camera detectors legal in Illinois?
Things from the past are hard to find in vehicles made in the last 5 years or so. I mentioned that you don’t see car antennas very often anymore, but I should be specific. You might be thinking, “That idiot…every car has an antenna.” I’m talking long hood antennas or extendable antennas. You definitely don’t see these very often unless it’s a classic collector’s item.
Bench seats used to be a front seat thing. I remember getting stuck front and center and hating it. That awkward hump was never comfortable and it was worse when the car/truck was a stick shift.
Other features you don’t see in newer cars
- Combo ashtray/lighter
- Hand cranked windows
- Audible indicators
- hood ornaments
When radar detectors came to mind, the question also arose as to whether or not they were legal in Illinois. When I was a kid I remember hearing about them being illegal. To be clear, everything that was ever done when I was young was either bad or illegal, so who knows the truth?
When I was looking for this answer, I came across one $850 Radar Detector. What?!
Get exceptional detection range and sensitivity with the same Blackfin 706 DSP and SDR AD 9363 chips in our flagship Redline 360c radar detector.
I don’t know what this jargon means, but for this price it should be better to make my car invisible.
