    ^ I thought they sold bumper stickers, via CafePress, on their website?

    Oh, and BTW, I've updated my area's traps onto the map! Fully, with comments, too!

    I too add comments to my traps. But have not found that many around here do

    I like to know more info about the traps I encounter.


    BTW I asked Pete the owner about the ability to just show current traps. He said the idea was tossed, but was considered. I liked the idea so I could look at the map and know which areas to avoid, without skimming through the mess of older traps in the area.

    OH well still a great system.

    I reported a Trap and it was placed nicely, how ever I think you should be able to detail in what type of trap it is ..radar laser pacing etc... also it would be helpful if you could report an area rather then a point (1/2 mile stretch) when i called it in, it asked for a street and i was reporting a freeway trap :-/ thankfully it was still placed accurately because the trap was on an overpass over the street i mentioned

    i said " I 80 east between so and so exit"

    You can do that... by becoming a member and adding a 'comment' to the trap.

    IE: "I drive by this trap everyday, and in my experience police only use I/O Ka band at this trap location."



    I like how it says: Usual police radar/laser trap area... it gives a lay person the info needed to slow down.

    You have to remember that we (on Radardetector.net) are here as a HOBBY (most of us), so we know what it means if a trap is: I/O Ka -34.7Ghz, but the average lay person wouldn't have a clue as to what that data means. Its nice to add into the comments, but putting it into the actual messages and warning system is over-complicating it.


    I just signed up a few days back and love the system!

    Hi Jason yes absolutely it's OK to put the URL. Additionally I'll post new images to CafePress with some different sticker options.

    Here are some (shameless ones) I have on my cars! :-)

    I really like those. I wish I had enough money to buy some of those!

    Right now with bills, the cost of rent, gas, and food my funds are extremely low like never before. It sucks, so I have to hold off on anything that peaks my interest for now.

    I have always loved the cartoonish Trapster graphic of the 'old' police car with a signal rotater on top, high-tailing it off, but I love it even more on the side of a car.
