A the other poster/commentator stated that is the Stalker
model & ser. #. I think the Dsr 2x means dual screen, one
screen tracks the cars approaching from the rear and one
tracks the vehicles in front. If you and another vehicle were
in close proximity the officer only saw one reading, that of
the faster or larger vehicle. example SemiTruck going 55, you
in subcompact going 65. Dsr Stalker captures speed of larger
In any case if you ask the officer exactly which vehicle the
radar was tracking he cannot say it was yours or the
other "exactly". If you get him to say that he cannot say
that he is 100% sure it was your vehicle the signal came from
then this might help you in court. Ofcourse in traffic court
the standard is preponderance of evidence, that another issue
apart from the tecknology of the Radar.
He might say, I recieved a signal of 60mph and observed both
bvehicles traveling side by side or one infront of the other
at the stated speed. But he cannot say that it was your
vehicle that the radar signal "bounced off". Be cause his
radar has a "funel wide mouth' at the target end, like
a "shotgun" where the signal is wider or spread out at the
The Model this officer is using may be an older model. As the
newst model Stalker has 4 screens.
fighting a radar enforced speeding ticket is extremely
dificult but it can be done.
