Looks like it was written by a bot.
Sentences such as:

These scanners might help in seeking help from the fire service too. Following scanners of these types with the radio scanners might strengthen you with accurate information ahead of others.

You will better do to have a scanner with facilities of the drive-through window of a fast-food restaurant.

Please put in mind that area-bound sensitive scanners having lots of traffic are sure to offer a lot of crossed signals too.

While you are looking for the car, you must adopt the measures to ensure that the scanner is built with commensuration of the local laws.


These show that the person (if it is a person)
isn't a native English speaker.
More likely, it was written by a bot, perhaps using
a form of AI. It seems the net is full of this type
of garbage to garner as many clicks as possible.

On one side of the coin, a lot of these articles are
"written" by computers to test out early AI algorithms.
Then they are "published" in hopes of generating ad
revenue. Then on the other side of the coin, you have
"click farms" that do nothing but click on these
"articles" to generate as many clicks as possible.

Some articles are probably never read by a human, yet
have hundreds if not thousands of clicks.

Just my own opinion but the net would be a lot better
off without all the advertising. I know this because
back when the net was mostly text based, ads weren't
front and center. Nowadays, it seems as though every
avenue available is used to push useless unwanted
advertising. From your TV, mailbox, cellphone,
computer, signs all over the place, everyone wants
your attention for something. It seems as though
every second you're awake you're bombarded by this
garbage. It seems there's more advertising than
actual content anymore, and it's the same commercials
over and over from Geico to Limu Emu (I'd like to
smack the idiot that thought of that one.)
Gone are the days of just describing the product or
service. Nowadays, people have to be "entertained".

I think as AI gets perfected, we will see more and
more of this type of advertising and articles.
Even now with CGI, it can be hard to tell what is
real and what is computer generated in a movie.

Amazing world we live in, isn't it?
