Pocket sized radar gun now available
A new mobile phone sized radar ‘gun’ that can measure a car’s speed from half a mile away is now available for purchase.
The ‘Pocket Radar’ device is said to be accurate to +/- 1 MPH and to offer the same performance as other professional radar guns, but at a fraction of the size and cost.
Pocket Radar is available from Barrington International which supplies products to the NHS, specialist hospitals and the prison services. They describe the product as “small enough to fit into a shirt pocket and discreet enough to use without altering traffic behaviour”.
