    Default What radar bands are used around the city?

    First off, this is not a "how can I break the law" post. Radar detectors are not a license to speed and in reality will often only give you advanced warning that you got a ticket. This is pure curiosity.

    What radar bands are used around the city? My assumption was that photo radar used Lidar and MRCD around Edmonton, and occasionally they would use traditional laser and Ka for pull-you-over traps. I thought K wasn't used at all around Edmonton anymore. And since this city is blanketed in K band false alerts, I disabled K detection on my Redline Ex.

    Earlier this week, I got tagged. The ticket says radar (so not laser) and my Redline didn't even chirp. I saw him pulled over in the ditch before his lights came on so I know exactly where I was when he caught me.

    Does traffic enforcement still use K-band?

    Where were you? Some RCMP vehicles still use K-Band, but like you, I also turn my K-band off inside the city.
