    (Your just talking about the fact that radar uses 'line of site' basically but what you said is not entirely true...)

    Just because you can see the LEO doesnt mean he can clock you. The maximum effective range of police radar units is between 1/4-1/2of a mile, depending on what band (this is approx).

    So if you have good eyes (or they have their lights on) you could spot an LEO before it would be possible to get a reading on you.

    That being said:
    You are generally correct 'carlito' how LEO's set up once you see them....they can pretty much (or already have) been able to target you or get your speed.
