AGO 1953 NO. 167 > Nov 9 1953

A radar instrument known as an Electro-Matic Radar Speed Meter is not a "speed trap" within the meaning of RCW 46.48.120.  Consequently, evidence of speed violations secured by the use of such device is legally permissible and evidence so obtained is admissible in court.
