Do you think one of the HP emitters would work centred over the license plate?

The problem with using one sensor is reception range. The Lidar is a very large circle. I they aim for the outside tail light, the centrally mounted sensor may not pick it up. Especially at close range when the Lidar beam has a smaller coverage area.

Rear shots are always at close range because you just passed the cop. So it is generally better to have 2 on the back.
