...Is that to say that your friend was, in fact, not using a radar detector at the time he/she was pulled over be a Spectre IV operator?
That brings me to my next question...what happens in the event that a driver is mis-identified and stopped and asked to produce a radar detector that may not exist?
What happens then? Does the police officer ask to search your vehicle voluntarily? Even if one didn't have a radar detector in possession, what would happen if one refused the request simply if one felt that such a search would be unreasonable?
