I have one of the best radar detectors out there; a Escort Max 360, linked with an active 4G connection, tether Waze, that I send in once a year to get calibrated. Trust me, I'm positive it's functions properly.

I do know for a fact that NY state police and the TBTA bridge police, just sit on the side of highway and "visually estimate" your speed, as you pass them, which is fancy way of saying they guessed it.

I tried contesting a summons, based sole on a "visual estimation" before and I was told that cops are trained to use their superpowers, to be able estimate speed, by plus or minus 5mph and the violations was upheld.

Doesn't matter anyways because to solidify their case, they just lie and say they verified your speed with laser or radar anyways. Anyone that believe that police are above bending the truth, let me know, I have a bridge to sell you.

I'm not on a crusade against highway cops, I know they a necessary tool in reducing fatal highway collisions but I'm not a fan of how the game is always skewed in their favor, level the playing feel and keep it honest, instead of the current guilty until/if you're proven innocent..
I had my uniden r7 on the whole time. I get plenty of hits in NJ for KA and laser but this guy definitely didnít get me doing anything. Which is whatís most frustrating.

Iím not saying I donít speed. And if you catch me you got me. But I havenít had a ticket in almost 5 years since I started using uniden radar in conjunction with Waze. And his ďpacingĒ is totally horse shit. At the time he could have paced me we were doing 75ish... so write me a little speeding ticket, I just donít understand why he felt he needed to make the rest of the BS up...
