ESCORT Inc., leading manufacturer of high-performance radar and laser detectors, announced the addition of Air Patrol and Intelligent Speed Traps to its award-winning social app Escort Live™. The new Air Patrol feature alerts drivers to known areas enforced by aircraft throughout the U.S. These locations are typically marked by road signs, however these can go unnoticed and can result in heavy fines. The ESCORT Live app™ automatically notifies the user that they are approaching an area where this type of speed monitoring is used.

Speed enforcement by air is a simple calculation of the time it takes a vehicle to travel the distance between two measured points, also known as VASCAR (Visual Average Speed Computer And Recorder). These points are typically painted lines on the road but can also include two stationary objects such as overpasses or other structures where the distance between the two points are known. The ESCORT Live™ app features an audible ‘Air Patrol Alert’, plus a visible on-screen icon and distance to the known air patrol zone. Once the driver enters the air patrol zone, the icon remains on screen until the driver exits the area.
The ESCORT Live™ app also includes new ‘Intelligent Speed Trap’ locations. These critical alert locations are the result of compiling millions of Escort Live™ user reports that have been produced automatically by the operation of their radar detector, or, manually by marking a police trap in the app for a specific sighting and area.
No more tickets! The new Max2 digital radar detector from ESCORT.
