Re: Radar Detectors?
I'm not going to read this thread.
However, the difference between cheap and not-so-cheap is the bands of detection, and distance it detects and how it detects. Some need direct line of sight, and others provide 360 degree protection. The more expensive ones actually can detect the radar beam so they can see cops around corners perse.
And the illegal things you think your buddy is talking about is actually a radar or laser jammer. What those do is actually stop the detector from detecting. They are very illegal to use. However perfectly legal to own and install. Never to use though.
Both my parents are cops so I know when I tell you he following..... They are trained in the acadamy for when they pull you over, they are 'supposed' to make their mind up before they speak to you if they are going to issue a ticket or not. Thats never how it works. To many variables. However, it is for sure said that if they were going to let you off before hand, and walk up and see a laser detector or jammer in the dash you will get a ticket for sure. And if you do get pulled over, and they see you fumbling around trying to hide it, and they will think its any number of things. Will probably get out pulled out of the car and completely searched within legal reason.
Food for thought.
