Re: Speeding Ticket !

I'm also a V1 guy - tried the escort max and failed me in a same situation, but luckily there was an accident just up the road so I was lower priority.

Really depends if he had POP radar and just hit you at the right time (but it should have gone off. V1 (all updated) consistently picks up side hits and I will see them coming up a side street. Thus far, (knocking on wood) while I've been pulled over with the V1 - no tickets in the SRT - as I've had enough notice to get it down to the 9-10mph over level..

The fully blacked out ride makes them want to pull it over regardless, but I'm always let go - a few tips

1) Open your sunroof and put down both front windows
2) Turn off the car/ turn off the radio
3) Have your license/paperwork in your left hand ready to give them
4) have both hands on the steering wheel / 10/2 position
5) Be nice and admit you were over, but not that much, apologize, and say "yeah, I know I was over, sorry, hard to keep it pegged at the limit with this engine, but (in my case) - my record shows I'm clean
6)

Re: Speeding Ticket !

Your locals use VASCAR, LIDAR, marked reference points, or Kentucky Windage?

Or be like me a resign yourself to several tickets whilst you own an SRT lol.
Most radar detection technology uses a local oscillator that indeed can be sniffed for.
However, not all speed detection equipment uses radar any more.
Optical speed sensing is faster, more accurate, and is not as easy to detect, but there is also totally passive speed sensing, using VASCAR or just a simple set of known distance markers, a stop watch, and a chart.

Try a Valentine...

OR, since you can afford an SRT, consider painting the vehicle with military carbon nanotube stealth paint. Been done...

Hmm, wonder what it would take to reshape the SRT body to stealth it... with a Hellcat engine, might be a good idea.

Well its nice to see I'm not the only one who is experiencing these kind of situations. That's being said I think the Ozzie's should hide in those kangaroo pouches while real men speak the language.
The cop had to eye ball me and estimate the speed. I'm going to fight the ticket who knows I might get it reduced.....

As for my escort 9500. It seems that the distance got shorter within this past year and it picks up other radars and give me false detection. So I don't know if these units needs to be calibrated or what. These units have been on the market for years with no real upgrades or innovations while I'm sure the cops keeps on getting better technology.
I did follow what you said about being pulled over and having all windows down (since mine are tinted) hand on the wheels etc... Its about considering the officer safety and put him in a better spot and shows your being thoughtful. But I would not admit any speeding if he feels I did speed then he could issue a ticket and matters are being delt with in court. He needs to properly identify the vehicle... At 2am and other roads coming onto the street I was driving, anyone could of been that guy doing 145km/h. Because there's was a good 10 seconds he wasn't in my line of site and a few hills so it could of been anyone. Small chances but when it comes down to issuing tickets facts needs to be facts

For decades, cops have been pulling that line, where in truth, your speed is pulled from their nether parts.

Well if that's your attitude you deserve the ticket ya dipshit. Stop whining like a baby for getting caught doing the wrong thing. Be a MAN and payup and shutup.

All i'm saying is that there must be a better technology out there for these speed burglar..
wait, you posted on here about getting a ticket for doing something wrong because a radar detector didn't warn you first? I don't use radar dectectors cuz 1, by the time the detector picks it up they got your speed anyway. and 2, its illegal in many places to even have one. cops have written bigger fines for just having them, and speeding.

No, I am not a person that does exactly the speed limit, ask anyone who knows me on the wk1 forums on here, I am known for pushing the speed envelope. no I don't have an srt, vehicle don't matter, my v6 will and is more then capable of doubling the speed and any speed limit in the US.

Bottom line here, radar detectors will not always save you so just man up, pay your fine and quite blaming something that you spent hundreds on for failing you.

Re: Speeding Ticket !

So the intent of this post is to find out if there is any new technology with the radar system. For every person that criticized in this post I really don't understand your rhetoric... I don't care about my xxx$ fine I'm lucky enough to be financially comfortable.

What i'm saying and i'm sorry if I wasn't clear in the first place, is that the Radar system that I have hasn't came out with anything new for years. So to me it's mind boggling in this age that this type of Technology is not improving.

I live in Alberta Canada so having a radar detector system is LEGAL...

So how about starting off new here and talk about the technology behind Radar detector systems.

well I gotta comment on this... if you don't want the negative "rhetoric" then don't post something that's gonna get that response.

now that said....

I don't think your gonna find much anything better as speed detection systems are constantly ahead of anything that will alert you to it. that's why they are not 100% guaranteed to work. I do how ever hope you can find something a little better
