I think park rangers can use radar in PA.
Yea they sure can. I've been blasted twice with 34.7 on 209 in Bushkill. Always I/O too.
I assumed it was K band, nice to know they use KA.
Update.. I traveled north from Rte. 80 to Rte. 84, and got hit with C/O 35.5 by a ranger in a white Dodge Durango. (2/11/10) They are out there.
Before I RTFA I was wondering how park rangers could use radar when I remember the approved devices list very clearly saying that was a privilege extended only to "The Pennsylvania State Police," but...
So they can do whatever they want. They probably use moving mode, too. Be careful...While in the park, drivers are on federal land, which means disputing a ticket requires a visit to federal court in Scranton. Speeding fines are set by a federal magistrate.
Since it's a ticket from a federal officer does it go on your state driving record.
How's this for park ranger speed enforcement.
Years ago when i was into bicycling, i normally would ride the bike trails in a large county forest preserve.
One day, i was coming around a turn and
There he was, a park ranger standing next to a moped with a handheld radar gun targeting bicyclists. WTF!
This bike trail believe it or not did have speed limit signs but who is gonna pay attention to a dumba$$ PSL on a bike trail?
And just how'n the hell is someone supposed to know how fast they're going on a bicycle without a speedometer?
The three times I've been hit have all been in moving mode.
Therefore, pay up. Uncle Sam's got bills too.
