Speeding Ticket !

I own a Passport 9500 CI radar detector.. was told to be the best. And i Know it's not full proof and nothing is full proof to avoid a speeding ticket. But 3 hours ago I got caught while the cop was coming perpendicular to me. My radar didn't even beep once.. I would of assume a pop alert would of been detected or something .. but nope nothing at all...

All i'm saying is that there must be a better technology out there for these speed burglar..

What's your point in posting that comment? All I'm after is to aquire other people information. If you own an SRT and never went above the speed limit!?

Its not about driving rectlessly its more about driving smart.

I think he was pointing out that the word you were looking for was "foolproof" NOT "full proof".

"Full proof" is what moonshine is. :-)

Re: Speeding Ticket !

Fullish - foolish?

We cant use Radar detectors in most places here in Oz, the cops can detect them (ironic).

If the cop was perpendicular to you, A: He must have got you as you went past with a hand held which means he wouldn't have pressed the trigger until you had gone by? or B: your Passport only reads forward anyway and he was outside the read area?

Or be like me a resign yourself to several tickets whilst you own an SRT lol.

Re: Speeding Ticket !

Was he using Radar or LIDAR (Laser) ?
If he was perpendicular to you, then he may have just measured your speed with his car, as usually radar/lidar require a front or rear shot.
Do you have the rear sensor fitted ?
Is the 9500CI updated ?
Do you have any of the frequencies turned off like Ka or K band ?

The 9500CI is a very good unit, and has saved me many times

Re: Speeding Ticket !

I've never cared for the Passport/Escort no matter how many gimmicks and marketing they do. I'm a die hard V1 guy. It's not as user friendly and brain dead as the others but once you get to know and understand its' patterns it's awesome. There's a reason all these famous speeders (Gumball and youtubers) always seem to have the V1 radar detector with Escort laser shifters instead of the full Escort system.

Re: Speeding Ticket !

Cops are now trained I believe to eyeball speed numbers. I believe they have tests where they can eyeball how fast a person is going and as long as this is within +/- 5 mph ratio, they are good. In a court that is permissible. Happened to me in the Bronx. Cop never got me on radar, just estimated my speed. Fought it in court though and won.

Re: Speeding Ticket !

In order to pass our radar class we have to be able to estimate a vehicle speed by +\- 3mph. That being said, we can't give an actual mph ticket based on estimated speed. It either has to be by radar or by pacing. And a radar doesn't have to be straight ahead or straight behind, it can be used at an angle but the consign effect kicks in. Which basically means that the greater the angle is the less the speed will show on my radar. The radar ALWAYS favors the driver unless I'm standing directly in front of your car as you drive it at me, which might be a little dangerous for me!
