Personally I am on record on other forums for thinking that laser jammers are too risky to use and that unless a good lawyer over turns a state ban on these devices that more and more states will enact copy-cat laws. I also have read on some police forums (No I am NOT a leo! I just wanted to hear their side) where many cops have sworn if they ever find these devices on a car/truck that they will ticket the driver for getting in the way of the investigation of a crime. - Before you all say it, yes I have seen the many videos showing how well these devices work. My only point is that they ARE EASY TO DETECT and in the banned stats it might result in a big ticket, losing the laser jammer to the leo AND MAYBE a point or two on your driving record which could raise your insurance- but I do realize that so far this has yet to get drivers any points on their records.
I first read of a video cam that could easily detect a laser jammer when it was fitted with an infra-red filter. I red the laser light was very obvious as to where it was coming from and going on/off with the burst of laser. If nobody wishes to believe THAT, then here is the link to a PDF file about a new Laser Jammer Detector now soled in England: http://www.ottery.com/LJD%20A5.pdf
I have used the handle Jammer for about 12 years and it is because I play alternative banjo, not that I use a jammer in my car. (just to clarify things). I'm not knocking any of you for using the jammers, especially in states where they are legal. I am saying, however, that without some precedent setting case to over turn these state laws in the banned states, that I feel the days are numbererd for using laser jammers in America. Radar jammers are not legal because the FCC governs how the spectrum is used. Laser is light and is not covered by the FCC. BUT that did not stop the 19 or so states from baning these devices, and when they learn of these laser jammer detectors I sure would not want to have one installed.
