    Hi

    I was driving down the road and saw a marked police officer facing the other way with a speed gun.

    Luckily I saw it and put my brakes on just before passing the policeman.

    As my car was behind the officer, can I assume I haven't been caught?

    Do I have to be in front of the camera to be caught?

    Thanks,

    Usually the speed gun is pointed towards oncoming traffic, not away from it.

    Hi, this is a screen grab from my dash cam.

    So it was facing you, not the "other way"...

    Are you sure it had a speed gun?
