  • Do police radar detectors work in rural areas?

    Hi,

    I'm sure I will receive many different responses, but my question is simple..

    Do police radar detectors work?

    If they do, to what extent?

    *if they don't, I'd like an explanation please*

        When a rookie, I once asked my Lt. if the radar worked in the rain. His response was only for rookies.

          I'll be nice: police don't have radar detectors. We have radar.

                They generally give you an advance warning that you are about to get a citation.

                    I WILL detect you before you detect me.
                    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                        Oddly enough, I don't need a radar to get your speed. Visual estimation is a thing. Radar is used to confirm visual estimations.

                          Why speed? its a game with radar and detectors, one you eventually lose if you play it long enough. I know a guy that always has the latest and greatest detector he can buy, still manages to get a couple citations a year.

                            I meant that I will detect you speeding before you detect me.

                              Radars and lasers both work very well in rural areas. Isn't it easier to drive at the limit than pay a few hundred bucks for a speeding ticket and end up arriving later anyway?
