I've heard the latest and greatest radars report the faster 3 or 4 cars in the field. I'm not quite sure why the cop would want to know - I guess so he can pull over more than one guy.

All I can say is it sure makes me a proud supporter of any military which develops radar and laser seeking missles.

Pulling over a guy who runs a red light at a bazillion miles per hour is totally justified. It gives normal speeders a bad name to endanger lives like that.

That's what I do. It sure hurts having to drive slowest on the one safe stretch of road to really open it up. There's often times smashed up cars past where they radar. The local cops couldn't care less. Just like the traffic light cameras that are not in the dangerous, proven history traffic lights, but rather those with the shortest yellows.

Just a heads up... It's illegal to speed too... Might as well just not care about either.

I got popped for a 86 in a 45 once. The cop was a nice guy and reduced it to 74, cuz any more than that I'd have to go to jail and loose my license.
