I saw this on a different site. I was looking at Dodge Charger Police Cruisers (just killing time!) and I came across a link with the below information. I'm not a LEO. Question- I've heard this rumor that if you drive a red car you are a lot more likely to get caught speeding, or any driving infraction for that matter. Answer- Police don't profile the car color, however RADAR does. I know it sounds stupid but if you are in a group of cars and RADAR will clock the red car first provided it's really shiny. RADAR waves bounce off it's target and returns. If you are in a semi radar will get it because it's the larger object with the large grill. If you drive a black car that is dull and has no squared area's the radar will have trouble detecting it, just like those of a stealth aircraft. In short Red Cars do get stopped more and I feel that is the reason why. Now I drive a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab SLT 4x4, Hemi, auto, tow pkg 3.92's the whole nine yards. . . . .in Flame Red. I've never been pulled over. That being said, if I'm driving on the highway and the speed limit is 65 MPH, I set my cruise at about 68 MPH. I make it a point not to go more then 5 MPH over the posted speed limit. I know 5 MPH over is still going over the speed limit, but it's usually the flow of traffic and more often then not, I stack cars up behind me. I just don't go any faster then that whether I'm driving my red Ram, or in my green '78 Camaro with the new SBC 385 stroker motor we built for it and installed last summer. I've never had a speeding ticket or any other moving violation or any points on my drivers licence in my 20 years of driving (16 to 36) and plan on keeping it that way. The cruise control on my truck works at 25 MPH, and I'll set it while driving through the city, small towns and villages ect. I don't wear my seat belt because it's the law, I wear it because I don't want to smash my head, face, chest on the steering wheel, dash or windshield. Anyway's, is the above information true, does radar really pick up red better then other colors or is it BS? Thanks, NYH! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
