Are Police Officers Obligated to Show You the Radar Gun

Are Police Officers Obligated to Show You the Radar Gun  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

When you’re caught for speeding the first thing that comes to your mind is where is the officer’s proof? I want to see the proof. This may prompt you to demand to see the officer’s radar gun.

In California (or any other state that we aware of) however, an officer does not have any duty to show you the radar gun. What’s more, he may have a valid reason for choosing to refuse to show you the radar, like a safety concern. He may feel his safety would be compromised by taking you back to the patrol car in the middle of the night, or he may feel your safety would be compromised by walking you back the patrol car where there is high speed traffic on a busy highway.

So if you want to see it, make a polite request, not a demand. If the officer refuses, there is not much you can do, it is not worth getting into an argument and the officer will think you are questioning his authority. Moreover, any chance you had at getting a reduced penalty or a warning is pretty much out the window. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
