On a relatively straight highway or interstate...lets say straight for one mile...can I expect my Bel to warn me in time if I dont have a scapegoat(or radar bunny...or sucker...or whatever you want to call the guy in front of you)? I know range in the city is considerably shorter but I purchased the detector mainly for protection during highway travel. Will the detector even be effective at interstae speeds?(75+)?
Also...another random question...can a cop get a reading on you if he cuts his radar on as he is passing you or can tell if youre speeding or does the radar have to be on before he makes eye contact? Anyone know if its a common cop practice to leave their radar off until its too late for a detector to warn you? Thanks for any information.
