Speeding Radar Guns - :-o :-o :-o

Do you need a mirror on your car go get ticketted for speeding ?

Well, yes, depending how you look at it. However in this case the "car" becomes the mirror. The gun sends a microwave signal at a certain frequency & it bounces off the vehicle. Because the vehicle is moving the reflected signal comes back at a different frequency than the original. Then, because of this difference in frequencies (technically referred to as the Doppler effect) they calculate the speed of the vehicle in question. Now, if there are other vehicles around you going faster than you, but you end up getting the ticket, then they were out to get you w/ "false" evidence. Not uncommon in this day in age...
