Radar Detectors Are Legal but Could Make You More Likely to Receive a Ticket

Radar Detectors Are Legal but Could Make You More Likely to Receive a Ticket blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

What do police officers say are the things that make them more or less likely to give a ticket to a speeding driver? (this question originally appeared on Quora). Experts weighed in, and “radar detectors,” made the cut.  Tim Dees, Retired cop and criminal justice professor, answered on Quora,If I saw or heard some reference to a radar detector being in the car, I wrote the ticket every time. A radar detector sent me the message that “I intend to exceed the speed limit and get away with it.”

Unlike jammers, which seek to interfere with radar used by police to measure the speed of moving objects, radar detectors are legal in most places in California. However, if your detector should fail, and the police officer gets wind of it being in your vehicle, remember it could sway him/her to give you a ticket instead of a warning. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
