    This falls outwith parameters which means that "all" readings are suspect and cannot be used for prosecution. It will need to be recertified, as obviously there is something wrong.

    It is not an offence to 'broadcast' light at certain frequencies and you are not "jamming" any signal.

    Having a laser/radar detector is always a prudent thing, problem is by the time the detector picks up lase, it is often too late.

    Each Force has its own criteria for max/min distances for capture. It is knowing these and then setting up sensitivity so that you pick up any reflections prior to entering capture zone, fortunately we have a national criteria up here, so it isn't to difficult.

    Thanks. glad i was around , and having it large, before the technology developed to make heinous criminals of all minor transgresser's. I just wish they would be honest enough to admit, it's now about the money,than any real safety values. Tyres, seat belts, brakes, crumple zones, and rd design have been the biggest life saver's. It feels funny having to come to terms with the fact, i was part of the Golden years motoring. If you got pulled back in the day, it was a human being that was faster, and better rider or driver than you. And that always comanded respect. Todays camera pointer's are even less than a pale imitation of the real thing.

    I said that earlier, I know what you mean

    All medium sized vans are Transits to me, generically

    Keep your eyes peeled Sven (like I am ) or stick to the tandem

    ACPO was dissolved in 2015. Its the NPCC now. The old guidelines are still in place but unfortunately, they are just guidelines, not protocols.
    Its all irrelevant as from the 24th of the month anyhow:
