    Default MAX failed to detect for 2nd time in collin county texas

    hey all

    i just received another speeding ticket today.. just like the first time, Max never detected anything.

    the police car drove towards me, and when i finally noticed it, it was already too late

    BTW the MAX went off 5 times later in the same hour!

    any recommendations?
    anyone aware of any new tech been used here in texas ?

    Kinda scarce w/ details,guy.
    Was it a DPS Trooper or Local ?
    He coulda been using VASCAR.
    Maybe he was the pursuit LEO returning to his lair & his partner was parked elsewhere as the Shooter.

    When a cop does Math using a cheat sheet and two landmarks. Now please correct me or fill in more details if there is needed any. But this is my generic understanding of VASCAR.

    ticket says speed radar , police car drove towards me so I assume he used radar

    i checked my max setting and x band and POP were set to Off
    any chance this is the case ?

    Well then, you still havn't answered the other question.
    If it was a State Trooper it couldn't be X-band...they only use Stalker Radar which is Ka-band.
    However, if it was a Local Yokels or a Sheriff there have been reports some Counties are STILL using X-band radar.

    sorry I thought I did answer , it was prosper policeman , it wasn't state trooper
    and I'm afraid you answer my question since my x band was disabled. I want to believe my mistake led to it and not new tech

    You confused me b/c you type in mostly "lowercase" letters. Normal when mentioning a Town or City people will use capital letters where it is appropriate.

    If you would have typed Prosper,TX police I would have caught on immediately.
