I can't afford a speeding ticket since my job requires me to drive, and that ticket on my time or SAWS time could revoke my ability to drive a SAWS Vehicle. In some positions if you can't drive due to tickets you may as well sign over your job as you sign the ticket.

Then why a radar detector? Same for me...driving since 17. No tix and no need for radar detector. State farm too.
I don't drink coffee though.

I've used Radar Detectors for years and they can serve many purposes including making one aware of their driving habits. They have been proven to make you more alert on long trips and make you aware of road conditions. Radar Detectors are able to give you prior warning of an accident and emergency vehicle notification.

If I were to say I travel exactly 25,35,70 mph, I'd be lying. I sincerely feel that most of us at times get caught up in the rat race of traffic and our speed gets away from us. I'm not implying that we become NASCAR Drivers when this occurs. I don't condone speeding but I know we all do it at one time or another.

Many times speeders although minor are just plain lucky that they were not ticketed.

Has anyone ever used Handy Services for Home Repairs? They sometimes advertise in our Newsletter and I think the Owner resides in Westcreek. www.handyservices-satx.com

I have a couple of repairs to be made and am looking for someone local.

I hope it's not the neighbor, although he did not have his can out and left just as I was walking out and left pretty quick..

a number rarely seen there. It's usually more like 25-30 because people can't drive. Although they will easily hit 50 on the internal streets where you actually should drive very slow

I'm just trying to wrap my mind around the idea that someone would "steal trash service". On the other hand, I see it at least several times a week where someone will pull up to one of those big green dumpster behind HEB and toss a truck load of trash in there - so who knows?

Time to do a stake out!
that would be a dinosaur dog. Two full bags, like 29 gallons each..

I wouldn't mess with him if it was

It could just be a coincidence and I will give it time to see if I am correct. The fool could've at least used similar garbage bags and some products that I actually had. The two I remember were a 12-pack of A&W (not diet) and some strange brand of sausage biscuits I've never even seen before (probably from wally world).
BTW, those radar signs are nice, but they drive my radar detector crazy. They also almost hid the BCSD parked by the new pool yesterday evening. He was pulsing, though, so I knew there was more than one out there. and radar detectors are 100% legal here as long as you're not on base, so you don't need to justify owning one. Personal preference trumps other people's opinions every time.

Maybe you'll have to padlock the cans!

I'll start checking mine for foreign trash now. I would sure hate to have someone dump evidence of a crime in my can and have it traced back to my house. My probation officer would get a little pissed at me.

if it happens again, there will definitely be a note in there next time. I am also going to check that neighbor to see if he puts his trash out anymore. He's one of the only ones that hasn't switched to Tiger and I can't blame him for not wanting to pay the obscene costs WM was up to before I dropped them.
