9780979418204: Driver's Guide to Police Radar

Ever get stopped for speeding? Most of us have. In almost every case the officer will use radar, a laser or time/distance computer to check your speed. Yet not one driver in 100,000 has the first clue about how that technology is actually used against them.

If you drive, you owe it to yourself to learn the basics about how radar, lasers and time/distance computers are used for traffic enforcement.

Read this book and you ll know exactly how police speed-measuring technology works. (At least you ll know how it is supposed to work.) It's good, but not every ticket is justified. Mistakes do happen, more often than you would think.

  • How Police Use Radar and Lasers To Clock Your Speed

  • Where Radar and Lasers Are Used

  • How radar outwits radar detectors sometimes

  • How to outwit hand-held radar, the common type used by city police

  • Lasers: How laser works and how it s used for enforcement

  • Time/Distance Computers: Accurate and undetectable

  • Radar and laser jammers: Fact vs. fiction

  • Aerial speed enforcement: How the Bear in the Air nabs speeders

  • Radar Detectors and Electronic Countermeasures

  • How to Pick the Right Radar Detector

Review:

Easily the best-written, most informative and accurate source of information I've read about speeding and speeding tickets.
...Should be required reading for anyone who likes to drive. --Bradley Fox, Derby VT

Great read! I always thought I was pretty knowledgeable about radar and lasers. But even with a $400 radar detector I kept getting tickets. After reading this book, I finally understand why. And now I know how to avoid them.

Too bad nobody gave me a copy of this book years ago. But I plan on giving one to my son when he starts driving. It'll probably save his license, not to mention my peace of mind.

--Ben Hamlett III, Houston, TX

Well worth the price of admission. --Automobile magazine
