Hi. I am new to this site. I am thinking about getting a radar detector but I have a concern. I will mainly be using it on highways and rural roads. In PA only state troopers can use radar guns and they are the ones that will be sitting on these roads.
Now I am not exactly sure how their guns work but if a cop is sitting on a rural road that has very little traffic, do they usually turn their gun off and only turn it on when they see a car coming or do they have it point down at the ground? Do they only send a signal when the cop pulls the trigger on it? I guess I am just worried that if itís not a busy road that I will not pick up his signal because he is not using his gun very much. Thanks.
