if the cop is using his radar on cars infront of you then you can detect that before he radar's you

since ive been to traffic school for numerous tickets
normally cops turn of their radar gun until they actually see someone speeding down the road. So a radar detector
has no time to warn you until its to late. Also their
now using laser guns which are not picked up by radar
detectors and about 10X more accurate and the distance
is crazy on that thing its about a mile it can pin point
ur speed. Hence theirs no point in buying a detector

like mastro said, most cops use laser now, and since it is was more accurate that means if your laser detector goes if a laser is already on your car. and radar is just plain annoying, those things go off everytime you pass a automatic door, like at a grochery store. your best bet if crusin highway, is to follow a trucker because in that little head of theirs, they know everyspeed trap known to man
