DATE: CHAPTER TITLE, FALSE CHARGE and CASE SUMMARY: (updated 1219/2007 9:10pm)
Mar, 2007 Win, Win, Win, Win False
85/70 zone. Was doing 76 on cruise, but NOT 85 MPH. Overtaking Vehicle?
Police (Traffic Radar Error/Errors) take your Driver's/Operator License.
A professional driver doesn't need to be a Doctor to learn about the types of radar errors! Look through the information. We just had another radar ticket reduced, another refunded. Another case, 73/55 zone, cruise control set at 55 mph. 18 MPH over. NO WAY! But we investigated and discovered what caused the false reading. See how we investigate using the "Heads Up Display" (HUD) Radar Beam Width Training Simulator/Aid. (Please view with Microsoft Explorer for best visualization/graphical movement!)
We know many of you have never received a speeding ticket and don't expect to get one. Others of you have received inflated, false, speeding tickets and said "Why Fight It, It's Too Expensive!" Others, well maybe you deserved it! Still others, the speed zone was set too low, you paid more than necessary (Speed Trap). Some of you have even been stopped for "Same Direction Radar" errors (purposely inflated), and the officer gave you a warning after checking you out (he/she can falsely inflate your speed to stop you to just "check you out")! False "probable cause"! Just like an officer stopping you for a "tail light out", then tapping the light and it mysteriously pops back on! He still gets to check you out, through "tactics".
Professional drivers know that penalties are increasing drastically! Quite often these "Speed Traps" and "False Signals" will cost you hundreds of dollars!
Read about My True Story Ask the County Commissioner, the County Prosecutor, the Realtor, the Retired Professor, the Fire Chief, the Teacher, the Brick Mason, the Graphic Artist, the Small Business Director, the States Attorney, the 16 year old Male Student, the 15 year old Female Student, the Defense Attorney, the Electronics Technician, the College Professor, the Retired Police Officer, the Airman, the Insurance Agent about their recent tickets. No one was going the speed the officer said. The radar/laser lied/tricked the officer. The officer passed on the lie because of careless procedures, overlooked, but required by case law. You need to know what causes errors! "Speed Measurement Devices" or methods consist of RADAR, LASER, LADAR, LIDAR, a Stopwatch, Planes, VASCAR, and Pacing! Manufacturers include Kustom Signals, MPH, Decatur, and others.
We've documented over 270 True Stories in a very short time. Some speeding errors were created by electronic harmonics problems. In others, the radar beam shot beyond nearer cars picking up overtaking vehicles. Many tickets were issued at night with reduced visibility, identification, and tracking history errors by the officer, some on multi-lane highways. Others were issued during plain daylight where there was heavy traffic which causes inter-vehicle, false, high harmonics, or large metal clad buildings alongside the road. There are also vehicular movement illusions caused by shifting cars and variable speeds. We have recent cases from California to Florida, North Dakota to Texas, Puerto Rico and Eastern and Western Canada. Cases were taken to court and reduced, or won! "Not Guilty" the best words you can hear!
Police Traffic Radar Errors are common! Nov, 2006 Minot Daily News Article. First Minot Daily News Article. Drivers don't know how to defend themselves in case they're erroneously or falsely targeted. Even professional drivers just pay the ticket and groan. If they knew what to look for, they'd go to Court with good information and questions to present their case. After all, you are "Innocent until proven Guilty!" Not the reverse! Greater knowledge about how radar really works and it's inherent errors helps prepare your case questions! Know what questions to ask!
For many it's the "principle" of being wrongly charged, next the points, finally the money. If you only knew the correct questions to ask! If you only knew the environmental clues to look for! When we investigate a false speeding case, why do we find so many cell-phone towers and microwave towers nearby? We use a Heads Up Display, a radar/laser "beam width" simulator/training device! Click here for Active Demonstration.
You can purchase a Hot Wheels Radar Gun for less than 30 dollars to verify everything in this demonstration. It operates at 10.525 GHz which is an X-Band frequency that's over 300 feet wide at 1000 feet. It's just severely limited in power, play use, not like the "big boys" radar guns.
It can cost you well over $100.00 per ticket in many states for only 10 MPH over the limit. Even home-rule cities are hiking fines for "safety" reasons. For example, Connecticut 75/55 zone = $239.00 and Nebraska 53/35 zone = $147.00. Teen driver, Bismarck, ND 90/25 zone = $445.00. Canadian provinces just raised their rates! Training standards are virtually identical to those in the United States! Same errors also! Check out the USA Today article on Speeders (Monday, Feb 23, 2004).
States are raising fines, some to well over $5.00 per mile over the limit. Home Rule cities have their own fine and fee schedules and have raised their fines. Revenue is short! Plans are being made to raise drivers license points as well. Highway patrolmen are reducing their "tolerance", some agencies to just 4 mph over the limit. Insurance companies are raising their rates!
We're here to explain Moving Radar problems which cause inflated readings and excessive fines and points. You CAN protect yourself from errors. Even Stationary Radar and Laser/Lidar/Ladar are error prone in certain environments.
We're here to primarily help officers prevent errors in the first place! Secondly, if errors do occur, how you, the driver, can take it to Court to prove your innocence. As a professional, we want you to know as much as (or more than) the officer about radar errors. That's the only way you can keep everyone honest. Check out Kustom Signals "QuikTrak". It's not to be used for conviction. It still needs full "tracking history" provided by Court Rulings. MPH's "PoP" mode likewise needs 3-5 seconds of Human Tracking History (Common Sense Estimation of Speed) not a Lying Radar caused by too short, very brief, readings designed to defeat laser/radar detectors and subject to error under many conditions.) This is especially true with moving radar moving through random environments with ever increasing electronic interference.
That's why we have Courts. You need to know what Questions to ask the officer during Cross Examination. You also need to know when to "Object" to improper Courtroom procedures, practiced by the Prosecutor. They can easily tilt the "Scales of Justice" (51%) in their favor if you don't know when to object to improper procedure, thus allowing the Judge key decision information. Guilty!
Too many of you have already received wrongly issued, inflated tickets. Just ask around and start a conversation with another driver. We encourage you to become educated. Know what to look for. With details, you'll know what went wrong and what you can do about it.
Information is more than Power! The power is in taking action, knowing what questions to ask. You can have the best legal Radar or Laser Detector on the market and still be cited for a false, higher speed because of certain radar/laser errors you'll learn about. The radar detector is useful in determining if the officer was using "lock mode" which can cause errors. We have videotaped evidence of these erroneous speeds and errors. We've taken the time to document and record these events. All information and stories in the book are true, real drivers telling about what really happened and summarized for easy understanding! Speed Measurement Devices or Radar Instruments have certain case law requirements which must be met! The officers know this, but you don't.
Be pro-active: know what to look for. Our book "Traffic Radar for Motorists, Why 33% of Speeding Tickets are Wrong" explains errors in detail. We use full-color pictures, diagrams, and an easy to understand "true-story" style of format. It's designed to be kept in your vehicle for immediate reference. You'll have the Heads Up Display ready to use. You'll have a page for notes and observations, plus room to draw a diagram for future Court use.
It's tough to prepare a case weeks later after your memory fades. Officers take immediate notes; Note the details of your false charge as well. Take pictures with your new Cell Phone or PDA! Time stamp it! Document the event! Record it! Your Garmin, TomTom, Lawrence, or other GPS tracking/mapping systems can be useful as well. The Navigational Technologies (NAVTECH) and Delorme GPS Maps can record your actual/true speed during use.
Learn what to take pictures of in order to support your case. Even a Phazer or Whistler radar detector won't help you! It's the false charges to court that should concern you. A recent Court Dismissal found that the radar WAS NOT CALIBRATED for 4 years! In other cases, the speed zone had NEVER been established by law. In other areas, officers are purchasing their own radars to use, but not calibrating/testing/certifying their use. Know when to subpoena the video recording made by the officer of your speeding event! It'll reveal additional information and errors!
