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 th 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.



There is no federal laws against laser jammers only radar jammers are illegals on a federal level. The old shifter used to work decent (they still sell them) but it is no match for todays newer laser guns. The alp jammer is very powerful and in most cases an officer can not get a speed reading at all and the laser gun will show an error code. I have my alp set to jam for 4 seconds then turn off. That will give me time to slow down then the officer can get a reading. :cool:


Here are the radar detector and laser jammer laws by state.

The laser will bounce of anything prismatic. Marker lights, turn signals, safety vests, stop signs, & license plates. My guess is that the speed detectors are the reason the plates have the prismatic plates, revenue generator, & also why some states require the front plate.

Radar is regulated under FCC where as lasers are under FDA... Q: Who administers Laser Regulations?
A: Laser product requirements are inspected and enforced by a division of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called the “Office of Compliance” of the “Center for Devices and Radiological Health” (CDRH).

FCC says no jammers for radar while FDA hasnt stepped up to regulate them the way cops want.

Had to look it up, very interested in this.

Yup you got it! The parking sensors/emitters meet fda regulations so they are legal in all states if used as a parking sensor. BTW they do work as parking sensors I tried it earlier when I went to pick up pizza. :p

If this.is.true, then a plastic plate cover will be a good investment.

For a few bucks.

Thanks for looking it up. Is there a link to print the information??

I think you should print this bro heim to cover your ass against a possible
Wrongful ticket. You never know, its just good to be proactive.

Now you really got me curious about parking sensors up front.
I wonder if these really inhibit lasers.......that would be a hell of alot cheaper!!!
I got a set off Amazon or Ebay that I never installed for like $30

how do you jam 2 air hoses laid across the road 10 feet apart?

or a cop with a stopwatch clocking you from telephone pole to telephone pole?

Air hoses don't copy license plate info. :)

However, highways with toll plaza's have the capacity now to determine speeds between plaza's.
They haven't been enforcing it in IL yet, but I'm sure it's been on the table waiting.

Throw a dunkin donut bag in traffic.
