Road signage is not necessary for radar/laser tickets to be prosecutable. The
signs are there as a "courteous reminder" only.

Subject: [DeTomaso] NPC - CA vehicle code question
On occasion I see a roadside sign that states, more or less,
"Speed enforced by Radar"
Sometimes with the addition of "County wide".
I believe this is a required notice for radar-based speeding tickets to be
legal and enforceable.
Am I correct in this belief or have I incorrectly gained this idea? Does anyone
know the vehicle code/law section this is outlined in?
Additionally, I'm wondering if this is in fact CA law, has it been updated to
include laser-based enforcement?
My Valentine V-1 works fine for radar but once it picks up laser, it will
probably be too late. Too fine a beam and not enough scatter.
I'm wondering if the notification law (if in fact it even exists) has not been
updated to include laser,
if that could be a defense against a laser-based citation?
Larry - not a real concern yet - but based on my history....... ;-)
