Yep, the only thing that will throw it off is if you speed up and flip'em the bird as you pass.

Easy answer? Always go TWICE the speed limit, then claim faulty equipment at the trial.

Our radars can get you coming or going in either direction.  It's fun when people either A.) Pass your or b.) meet you then hammer on it.

I was actually riding with a guy who got off with a warning doing 135 in a 35MPH zone by claiming faulty equip. He had a set up where he could make his pedle stick.

Only if they are wearing their hat.

When I policed the streets, faulty equipment claims would most likely get the offender an additional ticket for defective equipment. Around here the defective equipment excuse will get you nowhere fast.

Not sure about the radar but with the lazer the officer needs to be stationary.

Old radars couldn't calculate the speed if you were going away from the radar.  Newer ones will... all will calculate closing speed.

Laser can't read the patrol vehicle speed to deduct it from the total.  Aiming would be near impossible while moving too.

Stuck gas pedal, wow, that vehicle is pretty much unsafe to operate on the public streets, here's a ticket, and I'll call you a tow truck so you can safely remove it from the street.

Like I never heard that lame shit before...

a good moving radar will be able to capture your speed coming at or going away from the unit, either moving or stationary patrol vehicle.

I would have to call on that. seems a cop would write for defective eqipment and haul the driver in for felony endagerment or something. Pics of the ticket stating a warning for 135 or it didn't happen.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I meant faulty radar detection equipment. And it was a joke.

Yeah, but if I'm slowing down, even if it's from 99 to 90, you can't give me a ticket.

My buddy tolds me so.



You can also make your car invisible to radar by putting tin foil on your hubcaps.  And anything left over can be made into a hat.
