Got popped for 47 in a 30 (30 is wayyyyy to slow for this road). Officer knocked it down to 39 so it is $80 and 1 point (he was a cool guy and very nice). He told me he got me with laser. I haven't been running my radar detector since i got the new truck but that wouldnt have saved me anyway. When your detector screams laser alert they already have your speed.


Sooooooooo that brings me to the laser jammer. The best one on the market is the Al Priority. It can jam every laser gun made including the NEW "un jammable" Dragon eye laser gun. ;) Well anyway I just got done installing the al priority and also picked up the best radar detector on the market (escort redline which is better than the V1).

My install









Just curious if anybody else has ever run a laser jammer. I need to find somebody local with a laser gun to test and verify I have it setup correctly.

Been thinking of one for my cts-v, I believe they are illegal in Texas. But some of those long straight, flat highways here it hard to stay at 70 unless I put cruise control on.
Will be interested to know if it works. May look into one for myself.

They are not cheap thats for sure. Been thinking about one for a long time and now this new one is bad azz and I got popped so I said WTH why not.

Comes with one sensor and you need two for the front. Super small cars can use one but anything normal size to large should use two.

Use code RDF to get 10% off. I paid $630

I know a few cops so I will have one of them test the jammer. I just installed it today so it wasnt on the truck when I got the ticket. We will be doing a lot of driving this summer with our surrogate pregnant and 3 1/2 hours away to go to some of the Dr's appointments.

Aren't those illegal in many states?


In 11 states they are BUT it is a parking sensor......................


Now radar jammers are illegals in all states but laser is not radar.

Jammers are illegal in every State. That being said...I have one that integrtaes in to my BEL RX65 detector. They called it a "shifter" because actually jamming the return is very difficult and violates multiple Federal laws. BEL/Escort developed the shifter whih returns a signal that is much slower than the real signal. How accurate? The one test I got to do with a friend on the local PD was pretty damn good. He could not get a lock on the gun untill I was about 25 feet from the gun. However...they all have a serious fault. The receiver/transmitter is located on the license plate as that's where the office aims the gun to get the best return signal. If they can't lock there, they go for the headlights which is a much tougher target. But it should be enough to get a warning on the detector. The unit I got was discontinued after about a year because of Federal issues with interfering with a Laser signal blah blah. It was about $350 as I recall...the detector another $250.

From what I gather, the laws about jamming Laser/Lidar vary widely. But the officials can get around it because every State has laws on the books about interfering with law enforcement and rendering their equipment ineffective, or interference with apprehension of a suspect. The verbage varies widely, and these laws weren't written for Jammers. But some are broad enough that they can cite you with some obscure regulation. If they want to, they can find something to cite and force-fit it.
