    Do police give you a hard time if you have a radar scanner?

    Hey guys. I'm looking into getting a radar detector. I'm not a hoon and I don't plan on speeding with it, i just think it will be a really good thing to have so you can check your speed when there's a hair dyer pointing towards you.
    I was thinking of getting the Valentine One Radar Detector. There is a shop here in Perth that sells them and they say it's 100% legal in WA:

    I'm just wondering if any of you that use radar detectors gets picked on by cops. Apparently cops can pick up signals from radar detectors meaning they have radar detector detectors. I don't want to hide it cos the valentine one has 2 sensors on the front and back to catch radar detectors, so it has to be mounted on the windshield

    Radar detectors were all the rage before they started rolling out the laser systems.
    I've heard comments relating to obstruction of vision fines when placed on windscreen.
