Unfortunately many people have the misperception that police radar is infallible, it is not. This document is intended to familiarize the reader with the use and misuse of police radar by examining basic scientific and engineering principles in detail. There are numerous instances of unintentional (and a few intentional) abuses. One limitation is radar and lidar both have a minimum range, vehicles inside minimum range cannot be measured. Minimum range depends on target vehicle speed and radar / lidar location to the road, NOT antenna beam angle. Website includes over 30 calculators including a minimum range calculator.
