Hold up. Cosine works for the driver. In most cases it is a non-factor as far as influencing the reading by either radar or lidar. I see no regular, read officer sitting road side, one lane from traffic, speed "trap" that will lower a reading by 2-3 KMH. The fact of the matter is that the operator manuals state, thanks book, that the device is only accurate to within 2 KMH. If the officer charges full "reading", then you could still get the ticket lowered simply with this info. This is huge at that magic 49 over mark. However, you are right bear, 50 over is a stuuuuuupid thing to be doing. But 40 is OK. :D

Cosine error is not restricted to the horizontal plain. There is a vertical cosine error also. So of course a crown in the road can eliminate the vertical cosine error (the cruiser can be level with the plain of travel of the targeted vehicle). Combine a crown in the road with a curve and, whalla!... no cosine error. Pop-up cop holes not necessary :)

Bear, you go ahead and do your "Cop-in-a-hole" thing. I will be taking credit for the big A$$ mallet, not mullet, that we'll attach to our front bumpers. Whack-a-cop.........I mean mole. It'll be great until someone loses and eye though.

I could see it now. Any multilane highway. Deserted except for me, my car and my mullet........mallet. A series of your "holes" all over the road.

The game begins with a police siren, fitting. Now I drive, any lane, it is deserted, and try to pop-a-cop back into his hole. Think of the overly impressive car control skills you could learn trying that.

And before anyone comes on here saying thats abuse..........I'll make the mallet, give it a wig to look like a mullet, out of nerf stuff. And there we have it. It's my new game called......................Cops & Knockers. I need to get a life.
