Michigan police are pretty busy without speeding tickets already. They do give them out, but unlike some states, it's not about revenue generation, and people drive so fast out here, that since there's a limited number of officers (largely due to a 3-year hiring freeze due to state budget crunch) they're going to go for the worst offenders, and leave the 5-10mph folks alone, and often the 15mph ones too.
I drive the same 35-40mile commute every day. I just decided I didn't need the unit anymore, I know where they hide, and at the time, I needed to afford an engagement ring more than I needed a radar detector (my spare racing bicycle was sold for it too). I bought mine through a fellow Acura Integra owner who used to work for a car stereo store, so he got it for me for their cost. I lost very little reselling it.
Irony is that my ancient Uniden LRD-2300SW (C&D's best model for under $100 back in the early to mid 90's) did me a great job, nearly on par with the Escort, and was far less annoying in its alerts.
