    Default Range

    Well the range has allot to do with the terrain the officer is using his radar gun and the traffic conditions.

    In ideal situations an officer can clock you over a mile away.

    However, case law states that in order for an officer to make proper target identification, the vehicle MUST be within 1000 feet.

    The range can be over a mile sometimes! Police don't ticket at these distances because a "visual estimate" is required to get a convication and unless they have a telescope they can't see what car is what from that distance...! :shock:

    Haha you guys. Don't you read the warning labels? I don't know about them 30 million candlepower lights, but I know a 3 million candlepower light will permanently blind you pretty quickly. In fact, have someone stand about 20 feet away and shine it on the back of your neck. It won't take long before your neck starts to burn.
