    Default Question About Motorcycle Cops (Attn Roy!)

    Can cops on motorcycles clock, as they drive?

    Saturday, as I was coming home from work, I go wheeling around the corner, no blinker...and I see a motorcycle cop, in the parking lot of the gas station.

    I wasn't speeding (as far as I know), but I wasn't using a blinker either. The cop pulls out into traffic. There's one car between me and the cop.

    I continue down the road, and I get in the turn lane.

    The cop gets in the turn lane. The car between us is now gone. The road I was at the time is a pretty common speed trap (the speed limit is absurd, IMHO, and cops like to lie in wait for people to screw up there.)

    So, I'm going spot on the speed limit, waiting for his lights.

    They never came. He turned into a subdivision.

    Now, my questions - was he able to clock me at all, or was the "I'm about to get pulled over, and holy CRAP is my boyfriend going to be pissed!" adrenaline rush for nothing?

    And if SOMEONE *cough* would have given me my Bel back, at least I would have some clue to the answer to this question (heh) but for now, I got nothin'. I tried to get his V1, but suprise, he didn't go for that either.

    Help!

    Stalker has the motorycycle set up. They use an ATR handheld and mount it so it points through the windshield of the motorcyle.

    JTW i have never seen this unit ATR handheld on a motorcycle cop bike before. down here they have stalker dual not a hand held unit.

    Default MC Clocking Me??

    Yes, they can clock you either of two ways.

    1: Following you and then pacing you. Some of the HARLEY police packages offer a switch that the officer can switch on to memorize the speed during a pace.

    2: Moving radar. There are several moving radar guns, I cannot think of the name of the model now, but they have one that the antenna mounts on the front fender with the controller in the dash.
    Harley sells this, here is a link to their PDF:

    So, since I wasn't using a blinker, and I have no earthly idea what speed I was going, I probably got lucky.

    Cool, thanks guys!

    Probably! I think we each get a pass every now and then... maybe he was off somewhere more important.

    The harleys (about 4 of them) around fargo use stationary laser. Dont have to worry much about them. They only shoot in town when its real nice out.

    I havent seen to many motorcycles cops. So my guess is that whatever they use has to fit in their sidebags. I would say if you see one park he or she is running radar or laser. But he the motorcycle is moving. I wouldnt worry to much maybe pacing but thats easy to catch.
