heres the scenario.
Hwy Bear: you pull me over on the suspicion of having a radar detector. before you pull me over i stuff it in my pocket

you walk up and want to search my vehicle.
technically, you cant search me unless you arrest me.
so now we go to court and my defense is---prove that the signal wasnt wasnt bouncing around the upper stratosphere or the Ozone layer whichever.

IM JUST SAYING!!!..... :roll:

Somewhere they were trying out E-search warrants. So, you could get one of those without being arrested.

According to two friends I have with the Ottawa Police...
"You cannot search the person to find the instrument." Exactly as you said.

They can't search you personally but they can search the car. So if you stuff the detector down your shirt, well, you might be home free... not that I'm advocating that kind of stuff...

Unless they find it, I really don't think they can charge you with anything.

The case law I have read describes illegal searches of the person that has not given consent to the search AND has not admitted to, nor denied, the possession of the RD. You are not required to answer questions asked by the officer. You have every right to keep your mouth shut and NOT provide evidence against yourself.
