  • Title: Radar Detector Users Guide | RadarDetector.org
    Descriptive info: If you don’t know how to use your radar detector properly, it may do you more harm them good”.. – Radar Roy 2003.. Updated: October 3, 2010.. Stay Alert.. After driving a few days with your newly purchased radar detector, you will become more secure in its abilities as it successfully alerts you of your neighborhood speed traps , however I urge caution.. As your confidence increases in your detectors abilities, don t fall into the trap of becoming a stupid driver and start making mistakes.. The most important thing you can do to avoid a costly traffic ticket is to keep alert of what is happening around you and to respond accordingly!.. Your radar detector can t protect you against everything and it is not a Cop Car Detector!.. Your radar detector is designed to respond to radar and laser signals it receives and that is all.. There is many other methods law enforcement use to accurately estimate your speed and issue you that citation.. However, if you are paying attention and know what to look for, you can reduce your chances of being caught.. Aircraft Enforcement.. : In some parts of the country police routinely use aircraft to obtain speed readings.. Often a good giveaway is the large painted white lines on the pavement.. These painted lines are used by observers in the aircraft to measure the time it takes you to cross over them.. They then radio a waiting patrol unit ahead with your speed and vehicle description.. VASCAR.. :.. A computer that calculates your average speed from one point to another.. An officer can also use a stop watch.. The painted lines in the highway are often a good indicator that this enforcement practice is used in the area, but the officers often use other devices to measure distance.. An officer can measure a guard rail from point A to point B then program this distance into his VASCAR system.. An officer can also pace you with VASCAR.. As you pass two points he enters them into his system.. Then the computer calculates your average speed.. Pacing.. Perhaps the oldest and most popular method of obtaining a speed reading of a violator by police.. Simply put, the officer follows you in his car (or drives ahead of you) and matches your speed to his.. After a short distance he obtains a speed of your vehicle and pulls you over.. Be alert, is that car behind you smoky?.. Laser Enforcement:.. A growing trend today are police departments moving to laser (lidar) enforcement and it is estimated that there are over 50,000 police laser guns in use today in the USA.. These guns transmit a beam of infrared light at a frequency of 330 terahertz.. This light beam is only 18 inches wide at 500 feet and gets smaller as you approach the officer.. This narrow light beam is aimed by the officer to a reflective area on your vehicle, such as your headlamps or front license plate.. The officer can only use the laser gun while he is stationary.. Unless your radar/laser detector is within this 18 circle, or it picks up scatter from the beam, your radar detector will never alert.. And by chance it does, it is too late as the officer has already obtained your speed.. To protect you from Laser Enforcement, we recommend laser jammers.. For more information, click here.. Automated Photo Camera Devices that include;.. Speed Sensors.. Speed sensors planted in the pavement and then cameras that photograph you if you speed.. They then mail you the citation.. Some areas have signs posted in the area of these devices warning drivers to slow down.. Read the signs, avoid the ticket!.. Red Light Cameras.. Although they are not designed specifically for speed enforcement, red light cameras are now gaining in popularity across the nation as a way to decrease traffic accidents (and increase tax revenue).. Photo Radar Cameras:.. Photo radar cameras can be either fix location cameras or mobile.. These use very low power off axis radar to obtain your speed thus they are very difficult to detect even using the best radar detector.. Keep Your Detector.. The biggest killer of all electronic devices, including radar detector is HEAT!.. During the summer months in Arizona, it is not uncommon for the temperature in the passenger area of a parked car to exceed 150 degrees.. High temperatures like this can shorten the life of any electronic device, including radar detectors.. Here are several tips to keep your car and your radar detector cool!.. 1: Park in the Shade.. Seems to simple, but by just finding a shade tree or a building to park next to can keep your car much cooler.. 2: Window Tinting/Sunshade.. State laws vary, but if you live and drive in states where window tinting is legal, consider getting it done.. Otherwise, consider a sun shade that you can pull out when you park.. The best protection however in keeping your radar detector cool and extending the life of the unit, is to remove it from the dash when you park and to store it in the glove box or under the seat.. Mount Your Radar Detector Properly.. The #1 Question I receive from clients is how to properly mount their radar detector in their vehicle.. There are basically two types of electronic transmitting devices police can use to capture the speed of your vehicle, radar guns and laser guns.. Radar is the most common.. Radar is basically a microwave radio signal.. At 1000 feet, a radar beam shot from a police radar gun is approximately 85 feet wide.. This radar beam can normally penetrate glass, plastic, cardboard and even your body.. What radar has a problem penetrating are metals, including some window tints that have metalized layers.. Laser is a light beam and is only 18 wide at 500 feet.. Because the beam is so narrow, and because it s light, the beam can be affected by virtually anything you put between the laser gun and the detector.. Don t mount it high!.. During the testing of the products reviewed on RadarDetector.. org, the radar detector is always mounted in the manner the manufacture recommends in their manual, in the center of the windshield.. A laser beam shot at 500 feet is only 18 wide when it hits your vehicle.. Police target either the front license plate or the headlamps.. If the radar detector is mounted in the center of the windshield, it  ...   which stated that an officer should not target vehicles further then 1000 could be used as a baseline.. However very few officers know anything about this ruling and his findings hold no merit outside of the state of New Jersey, therefore police officers often start obtaining a vehicle tracking history the moment that they observe your vehicle.. Under normal circumstances, the longest range an officer can lock on and make any type of target vehicle identification on a flat roadway using radar, is approximately 1/4 of a mile.. Therefore using my “Capture area x 7” formula, you would want to have a detector that has at least, 1.. 5 miles of detection.. However, there are also some variables in where police speed enforcement is used, such as hills and curves.. Therefore, if you live or drive in an area that has allot of curvy, mountainous roads, you would want to increase your capture area to at least a four mile distance.. During the Speed Measurement Laboratories 2010 Long Range Testing, The Escort and Beltronics radar detectors were detecting K and Ka band signals at a distance of over 10.. 8 miles away.. Therefore, when your radar detector goes off, make sure that you are traveling at the legal speed limit and are obeying all other traffic rules, until you are SURE the threat has ended.. Use the Correct Mode.. ”.. You ll go crazy listening to false alerts if you don t Use the correct mode.. Radar Roy 2001.. All of the GPS based Radar Detectors offered by both Escort and Beltronics such as the Escort 9500ix, the Bel GX65, the Escort 9500ci and the new Passport IQ automatically sense the speed that you are driving and adjust the sensitivity accordingly if switched into auto mode.. Therefore if you have any of these detectors you can skip this entire section by just selecting auto mode on your detector.. Use City Mode for city.. When driving in the city, switch your radar detector over to city mode.. This will reduce the sensitivity of the radar detector (usually on X band only) or leave the sensitivity unchanged and raise the threshold of the unit, when the audio alerts sound.. By doing this, you will significantly reduce the number of false alerts your radar detector will receive.. Hopefully you will have a more relaxed driving experience without having to listen to your radar detector s false alerts to other devices such as automatic door openers, alarm systems and even other radar detectors.. Use Highway Mode for highways.. When you activate highway mode on your radar detector:.. - You increase the sensitivity of your radar detector to receive at its maximum range.. - Your detector s audio alerts are restored for low signal strength encounters.. - Your detector is at maximum performance and more likely to warn you of threats ahead on the roadway, including instant-on radar.. For the VERY BEST range on the highway, always use Highway Mode!.. POP is POOP!.. In the 2004 MPH introduced POP radar into several of their police radar guns and marketed this new feature to police agencies.. POP radar explained in the most basic terms is that police using one of MPH’s POP enabled radar guns would send a quick burst (POP) of radar signal at a vehicle to obtain the vehicle’s speed.. In 2004 MPH showcased their new POP enabled radar gun at the Speed Measurement Laboratories Radar Detector test in El Paso, Texas and none of the radar detectors tested alerted to this new POP radar gun.. The major radar detector manufactures then went to work developing new radar detectors that were effective against this technology and new marketing campaigns were launched by the speed counter measurement industry.. The effect was radar detector users began upgrading by the droves to get these new radar detectors and it was a major boom to the radar detector industry, sales increased significantly.. But there were a few problems that were not addressed by either side:.. The use of POP mode is NOT admissible in court.. When an officer uses radar he must obtain a visual vehicle tracking history of the violator comparing his visual observation to the speed displayed by the radar detector.. Switching back and forth between modes is very cumbersome for operators.. Most states in the US do not have contracts with MPH for their POP radar guns.. Most of the high end radar detectors sold today come equipped with the ability to receive POP mode, however it must be activated and if you do, false alerts will rise significantly.. So should you consider activating it? I say NO, POP is POOP!.. However if you would like to activate POP Mode in your Escort or Beltronics radar detector, go into advanced programming by pressing the mode button and mute buttons on the detector at the same time while the unit is powered up.. Then press the mute button to navigate through this area.. React Immediately.. Each millisecond an officer is off obtaining a tracking history report means miles per hour taken off your speed if you react in time.. Even if the effort seems fruitless, apply your brakes immediately upon being warned by your radar detector.. Remember, police radars are machines and don t ALWAYS work correctly.. For common errors radar and laser guns and their operators make consider downloading my free Radar Detector Buyers Guide E-Book available on this website.. If you apply your brakes immediately, you could beat an officer to the punch, even if he is using instant-on radar.. Warning: Always be alert of road conditions when applying your brakes, especially when driving in inclement weather, on roads with potholes and/or when other vehicles are close behind.. New Radar/Laser Technology – Emerging Devices from the Law Enforcement Community.. As a retired member of the law enforcement community, I have the opportunity to attend the various trade shows targeting the law enforcement community and get to see all the latest gadgets that are becoming available to the law enforcement community.. The biggest trend in Law Enforcement continues to be the automated photo enforcement cameras.. This also remains the biggest trend in the Speed Counter Measurement industry with the release..

Radar detectors are legal to use in passenger vehicles in all states with the exception of Virginia and Washington D.. or while on an US military base.. In Canada, only three provinces allow the use of radar detectors in passenger cars: British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.. In all commercial trucks (18 wheelers) the possession of a radar detector is illegal.. The first Radar Detector Detector (RDD) was the VG-2.. You will find that most radar detector manufacturers advertise that their detectors are all VG-2 proof.. The problem with this is that VG-2 is seldom used anymore.. Most, if not all police departments now use the Spectre to sniff out radar detectors.. That is why I, through my contacts in the law enforcement community, purchased my own Spectre III to test radar detectors immunity to this new threat.. In testing, I have only found four radar detectors that can defeat the Spectre.. Bel STi.. POP Radar Test.. MPH Industries first introduced POP radar.. technology (also known as the Super Bee) in its radar guns in 1999 as a way to defeat radar detectors.. POP mode works by.. sending out a quick burst of pulse radar at approximately 67 milliseconds.. MPH Industries admits that while in this mode, that the displayed speed of a vehicle may not be accurate.. They recommend that the officer only use this mode to obtain an estimate of speed from the target vehicle, establish a vehicle tracking history, and then switch to normal mode to obtain the exact speed.. Therefore POP mode is seldom, if ever used by law enforcement and should not be a major concern as an important feature in considering your radar detector.. In fact, most radar detectors that have the POP mode have it disabled by default, as activating POP on detectors, opens it up to receive a false alerts..

  • Title: Laser Jammer Tests | RadarDetector.org
    Descriptive info: Laser Countermeasure Devices.. There are several products that are available that can protect you however against police laser.. Veil Stealth Coating.. When police target your vehicle with a lidar gun, they normally target the front, and aim at either the headlights or license plate.. The Veil Stealth Coating was developed to reduce the reflectivity of police lidar, when applied to these areas.. During the 2006 Speed Measurement Laboratories Radar Detector Shoot Out, the Veil was found to reduce the range of a police laser gun as much as 70%.. If your radar detector is mounted correctly so it does activate to a laser alert, the extra time it will take for a laser gun to acquire your speed with the Veil, may save yourself from a citation.. (.. Full Review of Veil Stealth Coating Here.. ).. Laser Jammers.. First off there are two basic types of laser jammers, active and passive.. Passive Jammers: Passive jammers claim that they can disrupt a police radar and/or laser signal by reflecting back to the officers gun.. These passive devices do not work, and Radar Roy is so confident that they will fail in protecting you, that he is offering a.. $5000.. 00 reward.. to anyone that can show him a passive jammer that does work.. Active Jammers: On the other hand, active laser jammers are very effective in jamming police laser.. Once an active laser jammer senses the presence of a police lidar beam it activates and sends out its own light beam,  ...   provide the additional coverage.. There are several active laser jammers on the market today and Radar Roy recommends that you review his laser jammer testing reports so you can select the product best for you.. The Top Laser Jammers made today, include:.. Blinder HP-905:.. The Blinder HP-9005 is rated as being the the #1 laser jammer made TODAY and easiest to install!.. Laser Interceptor:.. Rated the #1 laser jammer at the 2007 and 2008 Guys of Lidar test.. Escort ZR4:.. Front and rear laser jamming system was developed by Escort and interfaces with Escort and Beltronics radar detector units.. There are no federal prohibitions of laser jammers, as laser is controlled by the U.. S.. Food and Drug Administration under CFR 21, subpart 1040, 1041 for eye safety.. However states have enacted laws banning the ownership, sale and use of laser jammers they are Minnesota, California, Utah, Colorado, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Virginia and Washington DC..

  • Title: Mistakes of Police Radar | RadarDetector.org
    Descriptive info: Did you know that over 25% of all citations are written in error?.. Was your ticket one of these?.. During my police career I became certified as an instructor in police radar and lidar enforcement and after my retirement back in 1996 began a website educating people just like yourself on how to avoid those costly speeding tickets using the various devices that are available in the speed counter measurement industry.. Since I received tons of questions regarding the various devices police use such as radar, laser, and vascar I have created this overview which will address some of the more frequently questions I m asked.. If you re looking for some more detailed information I would recommend that you consider downloading my FREE.. Radar Detector Buyers Guide.. In my Buyers Guide I go into much more detail on the mistakes of police officers make then what I have outlined in this article.. However before we begin, I want to stress a few important issues:.. First off, as I mentioned,.. I am a retired police officer and regarded as an expert in both traffic enforcement and the speed counter measurement industry.. However.. I am not an attorney so please don’t contact me regarding legal advice!.. It is my goal that our information will help you become more prepared.. and help you make a sound buying decision if you’re in the market for a.. radar detector.. and/or.. jammer.. Police Radar.. Police radar transmits a radio wave in the microwave band that upon striking an object is reflected back to the radar gun and a “Doppler Shift” occurs in the frequency that is received back by the radar gun.. The radar gun thus measures this change in frequency and then calculates the speed either in miles per hour or in kilometers per hour.. The Doppler Shift is a scientific principle that is used in both radar and laser enforcement in that the transmitted output of RF or radio frequency, a light wave or even an audio signal will increase or decrease in frequency based upon the movement of the target.. This change in frequency is predictable and is used to calculate the relative speed of the target.. This same dropper principle is used by weather radar, sonar and even radio telescopes.. I Don t Feel that I was speeding! What Can I do to fight this ticket?.. Well one of the first things to consider is something called Doppler Shift.. For an officer s radar/laser gun to be accurate the officer should be at an angle less then 11 degrees.. If the officer shooting you at an angle greater then this, then speed that was displayed on his device is.. NOT ACCURATE.. Now depending upon the type of radar gun the officer was using determines who s favor the inaccuracy favors.. Stationary Police Radar:.. If you approach the officer at an angle and maintain the same speed as you approach, your relative speed that was first measured will be the most accurate.. However as you approach the officer and your angle increases thus the relative speed that will be measured by the gun will decrease.. Typically an officer’s angle should be less then 10 degrees from his target to obtain an accurate reading when using either stationary or moving radar.. But again, if he exceeds this angle w.. hile in stationary mode, the odds are in your favor, not the officers.. Moving Police Radar:.. Now if the officer is using moving radar things become a little more tricky.. Moving radar was developed so an officer could measure speeds of approaching vehicles while driving.. This is done by the radar gun registering the speed of the officers vehicle while also capturing the the speed of a vehicle heading toward the patrol car while both are in motion.. The radar guns internal computer will accurately compute the speed of an approaching vehicle if the angle is less then 11 degrees.. However at angles greater then 11 degrees, the displayed speed on the officers gun would be inaccurate and.. who s favor is anyone s guess!.. How far away can an officer be to shoot me with a radar or laser gun?.. Another common question that I m asked is:.. How far police radar can travel and why is the sensitivity of a radar detector so important?.. Because police radar uses the microwave bands, which are high frequency, the distance traveled is line of sight.. However; terrain, buildings, and objects such as signs and electrical lines will effect the range.. Also police radar is directional, meaning if the officer is aiming his radar antenna toward the front of his vehicle and if your approaching from the rear, you may not detect his radar gun until you are very close to his location.. Personally I have been able to accurately target a vehicle with a stationary radar gun in the flat desert at over a mile away.. Would I issue a citation at this distance, hell no!.. Because in 1996 there was a landmark ruling in New Jersey Superior Court issued by Judge Staton regarding police lidar.. laser guns may not target vehicles past 1,000 feet due to the gun s one millididadian beam divergence of 36 at that distance.. Anything further than 1,000 feet, the laser gun might incorrectly target an adjacent vehicle.. Now Judge Staton s ruling only impacted New Jersey law and specifically addressed police lidar.. However someone with this knowledge could reference his ruling in their case, with the result of having their citation dismissed.. Is an FCC license required to operate a police radar gun?.. Yes, on December 9, 1996 the FCC issued a requirement that private individuals possess a valid FCC license to operate a police radar gun.. Providing an exception to police agencies as long as they already have a communications license.. Does an officer have to be certified to operate a police radar gun?.. Federal guidelines and The International Chief of Police Association outline specific guidelines and minimum standards and recommends that officers should be certified in the use and operation of police radar and/or laser.. Most states and police agencies have adopted polices and training standards.. If you’re cited for speeding, this is one area that you may want to investigate and subpoena the officers training records in regard to his training to confirm that he meets these minimum standards.. How much does the officer need to know about police radar?.. All an officer is required to know about police radar is how to set-up, do the calibration tests, operate and be able to interpret the readings from the unit’s audible and visual  ...   doesn’t work today as all of the police radar guns use faster processors, which will account for your deceleration.. What is Scanning error?.. Again another error common with older police radar guns which would occur when the officer quickly moved the unit from side to side.. With the new computer processors in today’s radar guns this error is no longer a factor.. What is Panning error?.. This error should not be confused with the scanning error as the Panning error typically occurs with dash mounted radar guns when the antenna of the unit is pointed at the processor of the unit.. What happens in this situation is that the device gets feedback, similar to that loud screeching noise you would get if you hold a microphone next to a speaker.. What is shadowing error?.. Shadowing error can occur with moving radar when it interprets the speed of another vehicle moving in the same direction as the patrol car as the ground speed.. This error in turn can display a higher speed of the target vehicle.. This error should be obvious to the operator of the police radar gun however this is not always the case.. Case in point one of our subscribers to our free Radar Detector E-Book nicknamed “Da Mail Man” received an unjust citation because of this error in Florida.. He fought back by filing a trial by decoration with the courts and won!.. You can get “Da Mail Man’s” complete filing by subscribing to our E-Book and downloading it from Chapter Three, “Police Mistakes”.. What is a ghosting error?.. Other external devices cause a ghosting error, which at times maybe unknown to the officer when these readings occur, an example maybe the patrol cars heater fan.. Lets say an officer is operating radar in a school zone and the speed is 15 M.. P.. H.. and he has his windshields defroster on and the fan blades are spinning.. The police radar gun can incorrectly sense the spinning of the fan blades and display a reading of 25 as the officer is targeting a car that is traveling at only 15.. Other devices that may cause this ghosting error include radio transmitters and high power lines.. Because of advancements in technology, these types of “ghost” readings are rare but they still do happen.. Why didn’t the officer lock my speed on his gun?.. One of the most important factors in the training of a police officer in the use and operation of a police radar gun is to establish a visual tracking history of the target vehicle, thus the officer locking onto your speed would circumvent his ability to do this.. However there are several newer radar guns now on the market that will allow an officer to “lock” your speed while displaying your speed on another display.. However this “locking” of your speed is not a requirement.. Can an Officer Visually estimate my speed?.. Yes, in fact being able to visually estimate a vehicles speed without the use of a radar gun is the part of several radar and laser certification programs and courts have ruled that a trained officer’s visual estimation of speed is admissible in court.. Why do police radar guns have speakers?.. Some readers may recall a television investigative report on police radar back in the 70’s when the reporter clocked a barn speeding.. Because of this report federal standards were instituted to include a speaker in all police radar guns so the officer could monitor the droppler radar tone so they could distinguish a false reading from a true reading.. As the speed of a moving object that is tracked increases, the dropper tone should increase and then as the speed decreases the tone should also decrease.. If you do challenge your ticket in court this maybe a line of questioning that you could pose to the officer by asking if he had the speaker of his radar gun on and if so if displayed speed matched the audio tone output.. Do radar detectors really work?.. Good police radar detectors do work; cheap ones are just a waste of money!.. If you’re in the market for a radar detector you will want to make sure that the detector’s range is at least six times further then the capture area of a police radar gun.. With some of those cheap detectors that cost around $100 you almost have to be sitting on the officers hood for it to alert.. But typically a detector around the $150 price range will provide you with a capture rate of around five.. Higher performance units such as the.. Escort 9500c.. i and the.. have recorded capture rates as far as ten miles or more!.. Does weather affect radar?.. Other then the officer getting wet getting out of his car to write you a ticket in the rain, no.. Heavy rain or snow may have a slight impact on the range of the radar gun, but not its accuracy.. However heavy rain or fog will have affect on police lidar enforcement.. What are the steps required for an officer to follow when using his radar gun?.. Well the first step of course is to make sure that he has properly checked the calibration of the radar gun prior to issuing any citations and then again prior to ending his watch to make sure that the gun was operating properly.. Then when out on the road the officer should make a visual observation of his target vehicle first and estimate the speed prior to using his radar gun.. Once he has established a visual tracking history he then would begin his target acquisition on his target vehicle and confirm visual observations with the audible and digital display on the radar gun.. After this is done all he has to do is activate his lights and pull you over and issue a citation.. I’ve heard that there is an increased risk of cancer with officers that use a radar gun, is this true?.. There has been extensive research in this area and basically the risk is very low if non existent.. However to minimize this risk officers are now trained not to point the antenna toward their bodies for extended periods.. So now that you understand some of the basics of police radar, I would recommend that you consider downloading my.. free Radar Detector Buyers Guide E-Book.. In my 48-page E-Book I go into more detail and discuss the devices that are available on the market today along with my recommendations that will help make you a safe and smart driver and avoid those costly speeding tickets..
