Doug, they will confiscate it if it's not hardwired. Apparently they can't tamper with a hardwired one as it would risk stranding you on the side of the road and they would be obligated to assist you, not something they like to do, they're above that. What they do then is get it's serial number for court and advise you to remove it. I believe it's a $50 fine and if you have GEICO they will probably drop you. If it isn't hardwired they will confiscate it until after the court date then they must return it to you...of course I'm sure it will get dropped...probably repeatedly.doug97gt said:I would like to get a Valentine. But in VA it is illegal to use a radar detector. If they caught you they used to confiscate it. OUCH!!!
Now I think you get a fine. Anyone know for sure???? If you get a ticket for using one, does it affect your insurance?
