    Welcome from Michigan USA.
    A radar detector will help, but if you are in that situation you may want to consider slowing down a bit also.
    Cheers !

    Welcome! we can help with that, and there are lots of folks here from AU that can chime in with local advise. The one thing that is global is that even with counter measure you are not invincible, However with good Radar and Laser countermeasures coupled with good situational awareness and tools like waze you can greatly reduce the chances of getting stopped. just wanted to give fair warning that running a radar detector isn't bulletproof protection, so if you are close to suspension you will need to be extra careful until the points clear off the license. however having good CM's can really reduce the number of points you get going forward!
