    Default No. Cali CHP using Lidar

    This is a few months old, but i didn't see it posted, so i thought i would.

    Here's the link, but this is basically what it says.
    http://www.ktvu.com/news/4355794/detail.html


    VALLEJO -- The Solano area California Highway Patrol announced Thursday that effective April 8 LIDAR will be used for speed enforcement on all freeways, highways, and county roads that are currently surveyed for the use of traffic radar.

    According to the CHP, LIDAR differs from radar because it uses a laser rather than specific frequency radio waves.

    The new LIDAR system is intended to reduce the number of speed-related crashes.

    The deployment of the system will have no set schedule, the CHP reports.

    :? :roll: :P HUH??

    Sneaky speed trap tactics reduce crashes? Moreso than a cruiser parked in a visible location with continuous-on radar?

    Oh yeah, I forgot, tickets reduce crashes. *COUGH COUGH*
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

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