Here is Aussie's thoughts (seeing the poliscan is a major problem here)... instead of their thoughts being scattered over the forum, I thought it would be beneficial to You (the person looking at this post) to consolidate their thoughts/what they have learned... there is also a link below – showing how some of these setup's are so well hidden, you don't even know that you have gone past them..


Please be aware that the Blinder 905's do not jam the poliscan (this has been well documented and discussed else-where)


Some Links to threads that are extremely worth seeing

HIDDEN mobile radar/laser pictures (you'd be surprised!) : These are some pictures captured by members - well worth looking at

Cases of Invalid Poliscan Photo Evidence : Many people don't realize that there are a lot of photographed speed fines that could easily be avoided, because these fines are mailed out without being checked - LEO expect us to know they are invalid.. :(




Please appreciate the time and energy people have put into this thread – and don't forget to thank them (any person's post that you find helpful/useful/interesting.

Do Not thank meinstead, thank the people who deserve it, in the posts below

The most difficult Poliscan setups to detect are those that are setup to photograph the back of your car once it has passed. If you're extremely lucky, and you have an RD which is excellent on laser such as the V1, you might pick up some back scatter from vehicles in front that have already passed.

The following two freeze frames from my dash cam show these setups, with the support vehicle backed into the bushes. When you're driving, you don't usually notice them, and have to slo-mo the in car footage afterwards to spot them;

Extremely deadly, as you're shot in the back from around 20m away, and out-angled LJ rear heads are essential, but not 100% guaranteed to protect you.

Note : in the 2nd picture, you can just see the green Poliscan in front of a "Danger - Gas Pipeline" warning sign at the left, and the front wheel of the support vehicle backed into the bushes.

Also WA Police have be known to issue infringements, based on photos which the camera manufacturer, Vitronic, states should be considered invalid in court.

For those of you that are not familiar with the photo evidence section of the Poliscan manual, this is a good read, on how WAPOL have been issuing invalid infringements based on invalid photographic evidence ;

THE BEST KEPT SECRET OF THE WA POLICE AND STATE GOVERNMENT - UNTIL NOW! - Speed Cameras - Speed Camera News - Information - Laws

As it says - make sure you view your infringement picture on line and check out the position of the white box.

I got nabbed on the Reid Highway last year at night before I bought any CM's, and the printed picture on the infringement note through the mail was pretty poor (was also unaware of the in's and out's of the Poli), so definitely worth checking.

The manufacturers operating recommendations are as follows ;

Reject the photo as an evidence, if

- neither a front wheel (in case of front measurement) nor the license plate are at
least in part visible within the template,
respectively

- neither a rear wheel (in case of rear measurement) nor the license plate are at
least in part visible within the template,
or

- other road users travelling on the same lane or an adjacent lane are visible
within the template,
or

- the lower edge of the template frame is not beneath the wheels.
