Note: Not all areas have Safety Warning System transmitters. Visit Safety Warning Systems web page at www.safetyradar.com for SWS locations.

16

LASER/VG-2ALERTS

Laser Audio/Visual Alerts

When a laser signal is detected the word “Laser” and signal strength is displayed, the audio alert is continuous for a minimum of 3 seconds. Example:

LASER

The more “|||” the closer the laser source.

VG-2Audio/Visual Alerts

Note: You must turn this feature on in option select mode before it will detect VG-2.

When a VG-2signal is detected, the detector “hides” its own radiated signal and becomes undetectable by theVG-2.

VG2 VG2

Text message confirms detection of VG-2.

Every 30 seconds, the detector checks for a VG-2signal. If aVG-2signal is still present, the unit continues to hide and repeats theVG-2alert. If no signal is detected, two beeps are provided, indicating an “all clear” condition. DuringVG-2Alert X, K, and Ka band signals cannot be received. (Reference page 23 forVG-2information.)

Alert Priority

When two or more signals are received at the same time, the alert priority is:

1.Laser

2.VG-2

3.Speed Radar

4.Safety Radar

Example:

If X band is alerting, then suddenly VG-2is detected, theVG-2warning will override the X band alert.

ARE DETECTORS LEGAL?

In Most States YES!

Laser detectors are completely legal in every state when used in automobiles or light trucks (under 10,000 lbs.). Similarly, when used in automobiles or light trucks, radar detectors are legal in almost every state. Exceptions are Virginia and Washington, D.C., which have local regulations restricting the use of radar receivers in any vehicle.

Concerning trucks over 10,000 lbs., the Federal Highway Administration (FHwA) issued a regulation, effective January, 1994 which prohibits radar and laser detector use in these types of vehicles nationally.

Prior to the FHwA regulation, laws existed in the state of New York restricting the use of radar detectors in trucks over 18,000 lbs. and in Illinois in trucks over 26,000 lbs.

3300 10/4/00 9:43 AM Page 25

SPEED MONITORING TECHNOLOGIES

Radar Facts

A radar gun operates by transmitting radio waves at certain frequencies which reflect off objects and are then picked up by the radar gun’s receiving section. When a radar beam reflects off a moving target, a measurable frequency shift occurs. The radar unit converts this shift into miles per hour to determine your vehicle’s speed.

Currently, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) permits operation of traffic radar guns at X Band (10.500 - 10.550 GHz), K Band (24.050 - 24.250 GHz), and Ka Band (33.400 - 36.000 GHz).

Laser Facts

It’s well documented that many radar guns cannot reliably provide the speed of a targeted vehicle that is traveling in a group of vehicles. In contrast, a laser gun can target a specific vehicle out of a line of traffic and determine its speed. The advantage of laser over radar in terms of target identification is the result of the laser gun’s narrow beam. A radar transmission can cover more than a four-lanehighway at a distance of 1,000 feet, compared with a laser transmission which covers about 6 feet at the same distance.

For best protection, keep these points in mind:

• Your vehicle’s license plate or headlights are the laser gun’s primary targets.

Do not follow closely behind any vehicle you cannot see through. If you can’t see past a vehicle ahead of you, chances are your detector won’t either.

The receiving range of your laser detector will not be the same as a radar detector. Laser guns are most often used at short range.

22

SPEED MONITORING TECHNOLOGIES

Other Speed Detection Systems

Several techniques other than radar or laser are used to measure vehicle speeds. When these methods are being used, no detector can provide a warning. These techniques include:

Pacing - A patrol car drives behind you and matches your driving speed.

Vascar/Aircraft - The time it takes a vehicle to travel a known distance is measured.

Radar Detector Detectors (VG-2)

The Interceptor VG-2,or simplyVG-2,is a microwave receiver used by police to detect signals radiated by the local oscillator of a radar detector. Because its purpose is to identify persons driving with radar detectors, theVG-2is known as a “radar detector detector”.

The VG-2is the primary tool used by the police to identify radar detector equipped vehicles. If caught, in a state where detectors are illegal, (see page 21), drivers risk losing their radar detector and receiving a fine. In addition,instant-onradar is almost always used in combination with aVG-2,leaving unsuspecting motorists vulnerable to receiving two tickets — one potentially for speeding, the other for possession of a detector.

Having a radar detector capable of detecting the VG-2may alert you to the presence of a speed trap.
