How Can Speed Traps Get You A Warrant For Arrest

How do speed traps work and how did I end up with an arrest warrant?

Isn’t technology great? Until very recently, if the police were going to catch you driving too fast in your car then they would have had to follow you in their car for some distance to measure your speed before they stopped you to write you out a ticket. Things were much more hands on back then. You knew that you had just been caught for a speed violation and you knew what you had to do next because the police gave you instructions.

Those were the days but it’s all different now. You can pick up speeding tickets and other violations while you are driving without even being aware that you were doing anything wrong let alone getting caught doing it. You only have to drive past a police radar speed trap a little too fast and that’s enough to trigger a citation. You will get it in the mail a few days or even weeks later. If you ignore the letter or it gets lost in the mail then it’s likely that you’ll end up with a warrant for your arrest.

Police radar speed traps can be detected

Have you ever stood at the side of a rail track when a train is approaching and noticed that the sound the train makes changes in pitch as it gets closer to you then further away again. This is called the “doppler effect” and the technique is used in radar speed traps to catch you exceeding the speed limit. The difference is that radar uses radio waves instead of sound but the principle is the same.

Radar speed guns send out beams of radio waves that tend to go in all directions not just directed at your vehicle. The radio waves can be detected by installing a simple device in your car which can alert you to the fact that there is a radar speed trap in the area and give you time to slow down and avoid getting a ticket.

Police Laser speed traps are harder to detect

Your radar detector won’t be any help to you against the new breed of laser speed guns which are fast replacing the old radar gun trap. Laser speed detector guns send out a narrow beam of light which shines on your car and the equipment actually measures the time that it takes the light beam to hit your car and return to the gun. This is a very accurate way of measuring speed and it’s also very difficult to detect one in operation because there is only one beam of light to detect.

There are no electronic counter measures that I know of that can effectively give you an early warning of a laser speed trap. This means that you could get a letter in the mail unexpectedly at almost any time. Don’t ignore it when it comes because it could turn into an arrest warrant if you do.

What can you do about this new technology?

Well you could try obeying the law and keeping your speed under the limit at all times. This is easier said than done of course. First you have to make sure that you know what the speed limit is at all times then you have to keep your speed under it all the time. It only takes one small mistake on your part and you’ve just picked up a ticket.

If you can’t avoid getting caught in a police speed trap then you must make sure that you pay the fine or protest your innocence as soon as possible. Yes the police do make mistakes so it’s worth making sure that you were actually there when they say you were. If for some reason the fine turns into a warrant then you can takes steps to find out about it as soon as possible and deal with it before you get arrested.

Use new technology to find out about warrants before the cops come to arrest you

It’s now possible to search the entire country to find out if you’ve got an arrest warrant. Only recently has new Internet technology been available to enable you to do this. It’s so simple that you can do a comprehensive search in much less than 10 minutes. This means that you can do it regularly to find out if you’ve picked up any warrants because you never got the letter or you’ve forgotten to pay the fine.

It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to avoid getting arrest warrants so make sure that you find out about them fast when they do pop up. Once you’ve found out that you have one, deal with it as soon as you can. Speak to a lawyer to make sure that you do things the right way. Trust me, this is a whole lot better than waiting until the cops come to arrest you.
