    Default What states use lasers?

    I'm sorry if this has been covered before. I searched but I didn't find what I was looking for.

    I have about $400 to spend which means that for now I can only afford a good radar detector or a good laser jammer. I live in NYC and I do a lot of highway driving in NY, NJ, PA and VA. I have a big trip coming up next weekend and I want to get something. Based on where I live should I go with the Blinder laser jammer or opt for a Escort X50 with some of that paint-on laser shield stuff? Is there any information anywhere about which states use laser technology verses radar?

    Thank you!

    Ps: You people have a great forum here

    Beautiful, thank you! ... Unfortunately I suppose this means that I really do need both a laser jammer and radar detector!

    From your experience, do state police tend to be armed more often with one or the other? I drive almost exclusively on interstates.

    It is usually used on the highways in the states that have laser. This allows the officer to target specific vehicles in traffic.

    My car is a 1992 Delphin Gray Metallic 325i. It's kind of a dark gray... literally the color of a dolphin (delphin in german).

    I am pretty set on getting a Blinder M-20 as my first line of defense. As I stated earlier I do a lot of driving on interstates... quite often at night. I feel like a radar detector would be a waste as the times that I am really need it (when I'm driving alone) it would be of almost no use since I am the only one being targeted. The idea of an active laser jammer seems much better suited to my needs. Of course, however, I know that I really don't actually know that much, so I would really appreciate your input.
