By the time the cop pushes the button, and the decector alerts, he already has your speed.

When cops are on the side of the road, or in the median just parked, they use a handheld laser which is even more accurate.

If they don't get an actual speed, they can write you for basic speed, or too fast for conditions.
It's called PoP really... they just Pop you and it's over. But you're right, I do know it's "insta-on." I did research b4 I invested , cops in Mississippi are lazy and keep it on nothing like Cruising down I-10 like that
