Using your radar to keep you safe
Submitted by Deputy Scott D. Nauman, Washington Co. (WI) SD
If you have stopped a violator or are directing traffic around an accident scene, consider leaving your radar unit on. Many drivers still rely on their radar detector to tell them when the police are watching. This same principle applies when you are not actively monitoring speeding vehicles, and drivers will slow down when their detector goes off, often before they can even see your emergency lighting.
Slower speeds increase your safety. Keep it between the ditches, and get home in one piece!
