    Default P.O.P Useing

    Do cops have to switch back for a 2nd Reading not using pop?
    Or how does that work and why do we take it so much as a threat if it wont stand it court 2nd what the diff with POP and INSTANT ON sounds the same does the same ??????

    The problem is that they can POP away at traffic all day waiting for you to come along, then by the time he switches to real instant-on he's already POPed you and wants to get the real reading. By that point you're on top of him and can't slow down. If you can't detect POP it's the equivalent of an instant-on unit working up ahead with no other traffic on the road for him to target. That will ALWAYS ruin your day.

    As with the vast majority of speed enforcement it's all about $$ (or pounds or euros or whatever other currency isn't in my character set). They just want improve their tax collection methods. I think it's pretty pointless since there will never be any shortage of unsuspecting speeders, but then again I've never been on their end of the gun.

    I think you are right. The majority of radar traps i see are the constant on (I'll sit in the car and u tell me when someone is speeding) type situation.

    Other than that I also see lots of Targets of opportunity, when cop runs instant on while driving... just for the heck of it.


    The most deadly trap is the cop out to write tickets.... he is the one who hides behind a bridge with laser, or does clever instant on traps in high-falsing areas etc....

    lordhamster, you speak the truth. Can you imagine what would happen if a bunch of us, knowing what we know, went out to write tickets for a day? We'd probably break every rule in the book but it would be a massacre .

    The group from RadarDetector.net would be a speeder's nightmare if we were all shooting radar. We would come up with the mother of all speed traps.

    Upload pics?

    Well, first upload the pic to a free hoster like www.xs.to or imageshack (I like XS better so there :roll: )

    Then get the BBCode extension for Mozilla and Firefox, install it to your Mozilla or Firefox and you can do it pretty well. If you want to do it the hard way, then get the url for the image after XS'ing it, paste it in the box, highlite it and press "IMG" on the top.
