Very accurate, it measures speed and doesn't care if the vehicle is traveling up or down, toward or away from the radar gun.
Yes. The radar gun is more complex than a stationary gun, but is just as accurate when properly tested and used.
idon't know about the speedometer reading but the speed the radar gun is the same as the relative movement of the vehicle not the speed at which the tires revolve
Yes, it is just as effective as it is in day. A radar just picks up on anything it can find moving in its view. Your headlights are picked up by the radar as movement.
with a radar gun
i dont think it can because it take a reading like a photograph it doesnt carry on changing the speed. For example: when you take a picture it takes a snapshot of what it can see. The same is done by a radar gun. Hope this helps!! :)
This a section for FIREARMS.
Yes. Otherwise it is their word against yours. You are also entitled to know the serial number of the gun used, if you intend to contest the accuracy of the reading.
No, if you are moving 30 mph and another car is too, the radar would say the car is going 0 mph. depends on where you are... in some areas yes Thats the idea, radar guns are used to check a vehicles speed, if you mean can a radar gun be used from a moving vehicle then no, the gun must be stationary otherwise an inaccurate reading will result.
No, not on the scene. But if you go to court the officer will have to present certification as to their training to operate it, and the fact that was"calibrated."
It measures the time it takes for the radar pulse to go from the radar gun to your vehicle and back. The pulse is fairly constant so the radar gun is getting updates and by comparing the updates to the time it can determine speed.
A radar gun only works when there's a free line-of-sight betweent he gun and its target vehicle.
Yes. The glass does not affect the radar.
Only if he has his radar gun on. Radar detectors are not cop detectors.
If the Radar gun is part of traffic camera (like red light cameras) yes, but if it is the usual hand held radar gun, then it does not assist the police in detecting your license plate.
Not sure, but I would think it would be the same in all states. In Louisiana, if you get stopped for speeding, you have the legal right to request to see the radar reading. And to note the time on the gun that the reading was made. If you feel it is not correct, and that you were not going as fast as the officer claims you were, you also have the right to request to see the calibration record of the radar equipment. The radar equipment is supposed to be calibrated at least once a year, and if they cannot, or won't show you the calibration record when you request it, then you should have a pretty good case to fight the ticket in court.
get a radar gun.
A radar gun police use to check for speeders.
Yes, a radar gun can be used on any moving object.
TN does not require radar certification. They only require working knowledge of thegun and how radar works. they do require the gun itself to be certified though.
