zzcop radarQ: Is it legal in Washington to have a radar detector in a vehicle? — Stacey in Puyallup

A: “Stacy, yes it is legal. You may have a radar detector in your car, in the state of Washington. However, law enforcement’s cracking down on speeders because speed is often a factor in vehicle collisions, so I would probably just go the speed limit. Besides, in this state with our traffic, you’re probably not going to get there much faster anyhow, but a good question, Stacy.” — Everett police Ofc. Aaron Snell
