I live in Austin, TX and have recently purchased a 9500ix detector. I currently work in pizza delivery and use my detector all the time...
My concern is that in the past week I have owned my detector I have come across approximately 25 LEO's in the various neighborhoods without getting a hit on the detector.
Is it common for LEO's to run without their radar on in the city streets? I know about Instant On so I am assuming this is what they are trying to do... but it scares me because I speed quite often. The only time I have really gotten a detection from the radar detector is on the highway.
Is it legal for a cop to give a citation for visual speeding without getting a read on radar?
