    Default Radar Love....

    Today published an article that I was interviewed on regarding radar detectors and laser jammers.

    Radar love: CHP stays step ahead of speeders

    You're driving to work, running a little late. You're going a few miles over the speed limit, but that's OK because you have the latest in radar detection technology.
    That is, until you see the red and blue lights of the California Highway Patrol and get a citation that will make you see red.

    More and more people are finding out that their radar detectors don't do them any good against officers using lidar, an infrared laser that can catch speeders from 1,000 feet away. Despite several technologies available to make cars "invisible," to police, the best way to avoid a ticket remains the same.

    "Drive at a safe and prudent speed," Dublin CHP Officer Steve Creel said.

    Whether from the air or the ground, police have three ways to spot and ticket speeders: radar, lidar and vascar. Radar is the most common.

    A radar gun sends out radio waves at a specific frequency at the speed of light in a conical pattern. Any moving object that passes through any part of the cone hits the signal an officer does not have to point directly to a specific car. The size of the cone varies.

    That would make it tricky to aim... "oof, I just need to get it up a little higher... dang, this Crown Vic weighs a ton!"
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?
