    Florida Police having new undetectable radar/laser speed guns?

    Florida Police having new undetectable radar/laser speed guns?

    On my way to college today there was a police car on the median and they were pointing a speed gun at cars, my radar detector did not go off...nothing.
    On the way back, same police car, nothing again from my radar detector again, but this time there were like 10 pigs on the side of the road with several speed guns pointing at cars. The guns were tiny and looked brand new..looks like they were trying new equipment out.

    Could that be true? Undetectable speed guns? That would really suck... Can’ afford all those tickets...

    Maybe they're bluffing and just maintaining a physical presence so that people will just slow down.

    Also, don't think for a moment that your radar detector is infallible.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Do what i do now a days... Keep the speed limi. I know it's hard... ppl will overtake you for no reasons, and you'll be in the right lane... I know it sux, but it keeps the tickets off of you, plus you save a tonof gas

    Physical presence, I don't really think so. It wasn't downtown, in this area there's basically a college and a couple of gated communities, not that many people driving by.

    I crossed them TWICE. And my radar detector usually works great.


    Obeying the speed limit, well..i have done it after my last ticket for a while, I know what it feels like...NO, definitively don't wanna do it again.
    Don't get me wrong, I am not a crazy driver, I just don't wanna pay $180 dollar for driving 10-15 above the speed limit on an empty road.

    Technically speaking, I doubt it is possible.

    Speed detection has always been based on doppler shift, and timing from signals that were sent out from the gun. This means that the signals sent out can be detected. Now, if they have developed something that does not need to send out signal, then it would be undetectable, and certainly it could one day be done, I am just not sure how. Something has to be sent back to the gun to determine the speed. What they would use, that would provide accurate speed measurement with out timing/doppler shift is very UNLIKELY.

    However, it is possible that they are using a new technology or frequency that your particular detector doesn't pick up, or perhaps, they have introduced some sort of new technology that send such a minute/short duration signal that the detector does not have enough sensitivity or detection ability for that length of signal. in that case, it is probably just a matter of time before someone comes up with something to detect it.

    No, all radar detectors detect laser as well...

    No they don't. Most do but not all.

    Like Wiredwrx said, if it is new technology, it is just a matter of time before we have some sort of detector/jammer.
