mouse acceleration

Hi all
Iv'e got an issue with mouse speed, on boot the mouse is to fast, so I found that the command
xinput set-prop 8 "Device Accel Constant Deceleration" 1.5
slows it down the way I need.
But now, each boot I need to run it again.
Is there a place where I can put it so it runs every time X starts?
Also, googling a bit I found that udev rules can be used instead, but I don't know how to write it as a rule.

So, what do you suggest?

In order to run the command everytime X starts you could put the xinput-line in your /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.
