It might be different in the UK but they are useful in reminding you where
the fixed speed traps are but you still have to be on the look out for
roving unmarked traffic enforcement vehicles.
The best clue as to where they are usually parked is to look for the
straightest, safest piece of road you can find totally away from any housing
that hasn't had any accidents.
Why are you bothered if your lawyer buddy 'fixes' them anyway? That sounds
very useful. Expensive is it?
It is somewhat expensive depending on the speed. I got one going 85mph
in a 55mph zone and the fine was $186.50. Fixing it takes care of the
points, but they still fine you. By contrast, the one I got going 54
in a 35 was only $79 as it was under 20mph over the limit. As long as
my lawyer buddy doesn't get sick of my freeloading, I'm probably better
off not spending $400 on a high end detector.
