Pizza delivery guy again?
LOL, no, not this time. Plane flying over. I live by a major airport and they fly low enough that sometimes I can get them on RADAR. The larger ones anyway.

Aha! Background of the photo led me to believe you were in you're garage.....so I figured either the Pizza guy or aircraft of some sort.:p

Must have been a fighter jet. That's a fast approach, even for a 747. Are you sure it wasn't the pizza delivery guy? Are you in Memphis? LOL.


Cheers.

LOL, it wasn't a 747, I think it was a 757 or a plane in that class. Not really sure if it was a Boeing or an Airbus. Also, it had just taken off so it was climbing. They fly over my house around 3000-4000 ft.

Thanks to rabbits, vigilant driving, and a huge helping of luck, I have yet to receive a speeding ticket. So please excuse my ignorance. I had always assumed that the big advantage of IO was that it would instantly calculate and record your speed. If the radar unit doesn't store the max speed in some way, what proof does the cop have that you were in fact speeding? More importantly, if they need no proof, what prevents lazy cops from pulling over random people and saying "I clocked you at 175mph"? As near as I can tell, fighting a ticket in court boils down to his word versus your since he has no proof you were speeding and you have no proof that you weren't.

When using IO ... hit the transmit switch.... see speed - get tracking history .... then hit lock switch to lock speed in. Anyone wanting to 'play' with a radar unit at the next midwest testing let me know.

Other then have a dashcam or some other way of proving what your speed was it will be their word against you. We all know that the courts will take their statement over you any day without some backup.

The main purpose of IO is to defeat RADAR detectors. If the RADAR isn't transmitting, there is nothing to detect. Also, there really isn't anything stopping a cop from making up a speed. With the exception of what protias said...dash cam to counter the leo's word.

Only if the cam has an integrated gps ....and if the judge accepts your proof as valid ...otherwise the wind
always blows in leo's favor .
