It would if the officer is running a RADAR. A radar gun uses constant radar waves from the gun constantly heading out and coming back. They are fairly accurate, but not the best. A laser gun has a sight on it. It is not constantly running. The officer looks down the sight, puts your car in the center and pulls the trigger. A radar detector will not pick up on this. Police officers are taught how to tell roughly how fast a car is going. If he sees you, he'll judge the speed, then use the laser gun to determine it for sure... then he comes after you. Radar detectors will be almost worthless after awhile. State police do not use laser as much b/c of the sheer amount of cars that are on the interstates and other roads, but sheriff, townships, and city cops may.

Stock as can be, just trying to reverse the damage the previous owner caused.
