“A way to measure the risk of ticket by detector”

I think this is a cool question so we will need a list of important factors (rating importance from 1-10). I hope to create a mathematical equation. Hers my thoughts please add yours.

1) Sensitivity - 10
2) Detection range - 10
3) Filtering - 10
4) Reaction time - 5
5) Ability to communicate threat - 5
6) Preference - 3
7) Speed at which you’re local LEO will definitely give a ticket - 10

Im not sure if it’s going to be in questionnaire form to calculate for an individual, or simple math to see how you’re RD stacks up.

Im thinking a decision guide may be cool

2. I take it that #s 6 and 7 are personal attributes, not those of the detector?
Could you define them? 8)

3. 6 is more of a personal preference like red display instead of blue, it may not make it into the final equation but I don’t want to miss anything. 7 can be very important in which RD will give the best results.

For example a V1 would have high marks because of how sensitive it is but a STI would have higher marks because you live in VA.

So that’s another one to add:

8 ) Degree of stealth
9 ) Are RD’s legal where you live/drive

I’m looking for what people think makes a good detector other than just sensitivity. Sensitivity isn’t the only thing in a RD that can prevent a ticket.
