As I noted in one of my other posts, I got a chance to talk to an APD officer today at work and I was just asking him general questions about Radar Laser, RD effectiveness etc. He responded that when he aims his laser he always aims at the lowest point on a vehicle to avoid setting off an RD and he also said that he has targetted people at distances up to a 1/2mile before with his LTI Ultralyte. Finally I asked him about jammers and he immediately responded that no jammer, laser or radar, is legal in Texas, and that if he recieves a jamming code at any point during targetting a vehicle he will pull them over and arrest them on the spot.
YIKES!! I thought laser jammers were legal here in Texas? Was he right in saying that it was illegal or was he just tough talking, knowing full well that jammers work and arent illegal, and was just trying to dissuade me from getting one? I know there is no federal law against laser jammers but who is preventing LEO's from taking matters into their own hands? Its kinda like stories I have heard of LEO's confiscating RD's in states where there are no laws against them.
Someone help me out here, as I was a few paychecks away from getting a Blinder for my car.
