LMAO at obey the speed limits. Guys saying that apparently are either older or they have not driven in maryland. Our highways are 55mph which is absolutely ridiculous. 2 lane roads are mostly 30 which again is absurd and 4 lane main roads are mostly 40. Im sorry I am not going to take 40 minutes to get to work or back home when I can safely do it in 25 to 30. I see people pass on double yellow lines just about once a week because people get frustrated when they get behind somebody that sticks to the ridiculous slow speed limits in this state.




Anyway here is my jammer and escort redline against a laser camera. The redline is at the top of the window so it "see's" the laser before the laser jammer does that is why it alerts first. Notice the jammer only jams for 4 seconds. I am going to kick it up to 8 seconds this evening. The jammer is so sensitive it actually picked up the laser when I was going in the other direction this morning before I got to the speed camera (if you understand what I mean). The cam and laser was pointing away from me this morning and it still picked up the laser before getting to the camera. This video is on my way home going head on into the laser cam.

Been driving in Maryland for 45 years and never have had a speeding ticket....the speed limits are just fine.....don't believe me, ask Howard County officer Scott Wheeler......oh I forgot, you can't....he was killed by a speeding motorist with the same mindset as you....:mad:

Sorry to hear that. You're correct, too many LEOs getting killed by motorists on the side of the road. This is why I don't give breaks on the move over law.

Just a little factoid for ya.... We can point the laser at your front tire and get your speed, and the jammer wont jam it.......ANNND if he can tell you're hauling tail (ie he's driven the road at the speed limit and watched another vehicle traveling at the speed limit and thus can tell you're speeding) he can still write you for reasonable and prudent speed without knowing your actual speed (at least in Alabama...)

Not hatin or trying to burst your bubble, just trying to educate. Good luck with it



You are right most jammers wont jam that situation but this one is twice as powerful as any other jammer on the market. It will jam the brand new "unjammable" DragonEye compact along with all the other guns. Aiming at the tire would be next to impossible on most cars due to the very low front fascia on most cars plus tires are not reflective. I am going to have my setup tested by actual police lidar guns in the next few weeks so we will see just how it does. All I expect is to jam for a couple seconds to give me time to slow down.

Even low cars are fairly easy to hit in the wheel/tire when you're sitting off the roadway. But like I said, good luck and be safe

The ROI on this seems sketchy. Do you really get hundreds in tickets, such that this will save you that money?

I can always tell when I cross into MD, the traffic gets so much more hectic. The speed differentials between "slow" and "fast" cars goes way up compared to my neck of Northern VA. Driving style could be described as more "persnickety" I suppose.

I am sorry to hear that. I don't go crazy trust me. most times I am 5 to 10 over. Take 270 or 495 for example. 55mph? Thats just stupid. How about 355? many areas of 30mph on a main 4 to 6 lane road and the rest of the areas is 40 to 45. Again that is retarded. I live in howard county right off of 97. 97 is 50mph in most areas which is ok for that 2 lane road but the other roads I take getting to rockville is mostly 30 to 35mph when they really should be 35 to 50. Lets face it we live in one of the worst nanny states in the country.

I have gotten 2 tickets in my life. The first one was a 77 in a 55 on RT15 in frederick. That road is pretty much straight as an arrow and WIDE OPEN and should be 65 to 70mph speed limit. My mother is the civil supervisor for the district court in rockville. She told me to go to court and plead guilty since it was my first ticket and they would give me PBJ (probation before judgement) and knock the fine and points down. I went and EVERY Frederick county citizen got PBJ but me and 2 other out of county residents got slapped with the full fine. That right there is the moment I lost all respect for the law. My mom said she has heard through the grapevine that frederick county judges look after frederick county citizens and business.


Got another one for you. A friend of ours had an in ground pool installed. The contractor was from frederick. The day they poured the concrete it was freezing out and our friend asked the contractor if that would be ok and they said yes it is fine. The concrete ended up cracking. Went to court (in frederick) and the judge ruled in favor of the contractor. Our friend rented an armored car and paid the entire bill in pennies.


So really I guess the jammer is an "up yours" to the local money hungry governments. Not so much the cops because most I have encountered have been nice and they are just doing there jobs. Plus I have to admit I am a tech geek and I dig this kind of stuff. :cool:

I like your style sir

I wish people could see the carnage I see every day due to distracted/careless driving.... It would change a lot of people

I bet you guys see some really messed up situations. I bet the reason officers have always been easy on me is because I make sure to get off the road very good and roll down my windows and put my hands on the steering wheel and am polite when they walk up. I also tell them my wallet is in my front pocket and my registration is in the glove box before I ever attempt to reach for any of it. I am sure they appreciate that and it makes them feel more comfortable with the situation.
