Default An Indispensable Resource

In keeping with the Mission Statement of the Speed Trap Hunter forum, I would like to inform my fellow Speed Trap Hunters of a newly published book which has just become available to the general public in its first printing, Driver's Guide to Police Radar (Everything You Need to Know About Speed Enforcement), written by Craig Peterson and available to the public on his website and at Buy Radar Detectors.

Some of you may be already be familiar with Craig's site, RadarTest.com which has been providing online guides and reviews (most for free) of automotive electronics, traffic enforcement, and automobiles for many years.

His connection to the traffic enforcement industry (both to a number of leading radar detector and countermeasure manufacturers as well as the manufacturers of traffic enforcement equipment and to a number of the traffic enforcement departments) has been long-established and spans several decades.

For the first time in history, we drivers can refer to one resource which details:
  • Historical account of police radar evolution as well as what's in store for us in the future
  • Advanced police radar features and how your driving record can be affected by their use
  • Common mistakes of police radar (often due to operator error)
  • Police LIDAR (commonly referred to as police laser) speed enforcement
  • Police radar in the city versus police radar on the highway
  • Time distance computers (including VASCAR, ENRADD, Aerial) and why radar detectors provide zero protection from this speed enforcement technology
  • Police radar (and laser) countermeasures and "jammers"
  • Original guide on how to properly choose a radar detector
  • Original guide to getting the most out of your radar detector
  • Exclusive field test report on various top-selling police radar guns
  • Exclusive and detailed specification guide to police radar and police laser models as well as a list of the most likely models we'll encounter on the road

There is no better single source of information available on this complex (and often mis-understood) subject in such a "bite-sized" and information-condensed package. Even a complete "lay" person, can quickly become an "informed" driver.

I have had the privilege of being one the very first individuals to have read his latest work and feel that anyone who is interested in really learning about the many aspects of traffic enforcement (so that you can be prepared for the potential "hazards" to your driving record) would be well advised to pick-up a copy.

The knowledge you gain from this publication will pay dividends for years to come and will likely spare you the pain and costs of future speeding tickets and make you a better and safer driver.

It's fortuitous that Craig also happens to be a fellow Speed Trap Hunter forum member!

Default Thanks Veil Guy :)

I'll have to check this book out. You know everyday I drive and the only thing I really worry about is Instant-on radar. GSP is known for being on the other side of the highway and using only instant-on radar. How do you beat such a ticket in court. I have got laser covered, but even the mighty V1 can't save me from instant-on. What would be really cool is if all radar detector manufactures could pick-up on signals from the officers radar gun just being powered up. Another words if the unit is powered on but not in use, if there was some way to pick that up, all would be good. Or find a cop car by GPS. most cops have some type of GPS system in their car. What do you think Veil Guy??

Now wouldn't that be nice.

I believe Uniden has been making devices which do something similar for years (a "smokey" detector, not based on GPS).

Check out:

Uniden | A World Without Wires - BCT8

Happy hunting!

Default Why not radar detectors???

This is one that stands out the most from the uniden website..


"BearTrackerÖ Warning System - Alerts you to activity on Highway Patrol link frequencies to let you know if there is activity within about 3 miles of your location."


Why can't Beltronics or escort or V1 integrate this into a radar detector. Frequency tracking using K band/Ka band. Scanners are good and all but doing some type of frequency tracking is a thought?

The Uniden is programmed to alert to the fixed frequencies used by mobile extenders, the low-powered vehicle-mounted transmitters used to link an officer's walkie-talkie with the cruiser's powerful two-way radio.

The feature was first used in the Colt CHiPs detector, a scanner into which these mobile extender frequencies could also be input. Designed by Phil Henry, this scanner was later acquired by Uniden, redesigned and repackaged as the BCT-10 BearTracker, later replaced by the BCT-12.

In its heydey it was great. But no more. You can read the Uniden BearTracker BCT-12 scanner review on my Web site.
