I have a few questions about speeding tickets, based on a conversation I had with a friend the other night. Neither of us knew the answers, so trying here.
1 – can police use radar guns to give you a speeding ticket at night? I know they can tail you and get a speed reading that way, but not sure how easy/accurate the guns are in darkness.
2 – can police stop on private property and set up a speed trap from there? Cops like haging out at an apartment complex in my neighborhood and catching speeders from it. No, I haven’t been caught there. But I always figured it’s questionable at best to do that on private property. Do they need the owner’s permission?
3 – can police officers be hidden when giving tickets? That is, behind a billboard, a building, etc? Or must they be in plain sight to the drivers they are targeting?
4 – do radar detectors actually work? Or with modern instant-on technology on radar guns, by the time the detectors go off does that mean you’ve already been caught and it’s too late?
Thanks for any info. Again, just doing this out of curiosity. Not trying to get out of a ticket. =)
