Keep Radar Detectors Legal in FL

By Assoc. Press WJHG-TV Feb 27, 2007 Radar detectors would be prohibited in Florida under a bill filed by a Florida lawmaker and former sheriff.The proposal, introduced by state Senator Steve Oelrich, would make it illegal to use a radar detector.But the measure would make using one a secondary, non-criminal traffic violation. That means that law enforcement officers could not stop you just because you have a radar detector in your car.If an officer pulls you over for another traffic violation and they discover a radar detector, they can then issue you a ticket.The legislation has the support of the Florida Highway Patrol, which says radar detectors have no other purpose than to help speeders avoid traffic tickets.
