A radar detector isn't going to save some people, because it cannot give them intelligence There are times and places to safely enjoy some excess speed. This was not one of them and they frankly deserved a ticket. That said had they had a detector they surely would not have made the 'speed run' that they did.I'm surprised how many people that need radar just done have one!? If you had a car like that, and driving like that you're asking for trouble.

Just been to Napier and back from Wellington, surprisingly little Ka band around over the school holidays on this trip. I also had the DFR9, R7 and DFR7 to test against different redflex vans if I found one.
Pretty uneventful trip, running the R7 mostly extended out on K segmentation to 23.95-24.11. Didn't find a single redflex van until driving back into central Wellington last night to drop the car off. Same red redflex van parked southbound in the dark just after first Porirua off-ramp!
I'm guessing NZ police must also have staff affected by school holidays as well then!?
Gosh there are a lot of Redflex vans about Wellington aren't there! I'm desperate to find one in Auckland for a bit of testing. Have not seen one for months and months... Had no chance to see what the DFR7 is like against them.
There are some temporary speed limits in place for roadworks around Auckland airport. Few times I've been past I get K band hits on 24.09 (i think), and with all the construction traffic and cones it strikes me as a prime spot for Reflex. However despite the K hits there have been no vans present. My best guess is it's some kind of emission from the temporary traffic lights they have in place as signal strength seems to correlate with my distance to them. Presumably they have a sensor to know if cars are waiting?
Is Redflex typically lower than 24.09 , I see high 23ghz mentioned?
