One User's Experience
"The Radar Recorder has been great, easy to set up, use and download. I have only placed the unit in locations where we have received complaints, not only to prove the complaints are valid, but to prove the complaints are invalid.
Complaints from citizens are usually exaggerated, for many reasons, and we actually had one lady who repeatedly went to the Selectmen meetings (which are televised throughout two towns here) and made it a point to explain how the cars are racing and doing well over 80 MPH every hour of every day. (She also made many comments regarding her thoughts of the police.) Now without going into detail, of the area and road she lives on, it would take a 'high performance dragster' to get up to anything even remotely close to 80. I did not have the time to place an officer on her road to monitor traffic daily, as she demanded. I had put an unmarked car there to monitor a couple of times, which of course she claimed was not placed at the right time. Anyways, after putting up the recorder there, and leaving for a month, I was able to print out a report to the selectmen to show the speed of every vehicle and busiest time of any traffic. Needless to say, she no longer complains, as the report showed that her eyes needed recalibration, and she was greatly exaggerating her complaints.
The unit has been used in about 10 locations and assisted us in determining busiest times of violators and traffic counts. I try to leave it at a location for 3-4 weeks at a time, sometimes longer. I use two batteries and replace one battery about every 5 days or so.
Overall, the unit is great and I would highly recommend the unit to everyone." - Satisfied Police Chief
