In real world, if the law enforcement is pointing the radar on someone else Escort will pick up and you have a chance to slow down, however on open highway law enforcement may sit with the radar off, as they get a visual on you they will turn it on, and you have no chance.
In my experience, for what it is worth, CHP on an open road like I-5 in the central valley (where you actually could drive super fast) both travel and sit in a speed trap with their Ka band radar on. There are so many speeders, they don't need to attempt to fool the people using radar detectors.
