A portable radar unit is being used by Kelowna RCMP to help guide their speed-enforcement campaigns.
Police now use a Black Cat Radar Monitor to detect the speed, size, lane location and direction of travel of every vehicle that passes by locations where the device is installed.
The device is not used for giving out tickets, but helps police decide where best to set up speed traps. A reference to the device is made in a report going to Kelowna city council from RCMP Supt. Brent Mundle.
