13 Shocking Facts About Police

Cops Don't Need a Radar Gun to Give You a Speeding Ticket 1 of 14

Most people assume that a traffic cop has to catch you speeding with a radar gun to give you a ticket, but that's simply not true. If the police are driving, they can use their current speed to estimate your speed. In addition, a recent court case in Ohio determined that police can issue a speeding ticket based on a "visual speed estimate". That means police don't need hard proof of your speed to find you guilty.
