I've got to say I am really liking this forum. It is what convinced me to get the Sti Driver , and I couldn't be happier.
Well here is my dilemma I live in communist Ontario (Toronto & Mississauga)...So I mostly deal with OPP,Peel police, & Toronto police.
This LEOs use alot of laser. I''ve been hit by laser at least 3 times. In my area they seem to only run radar on moving patrol cars at night. Yesterday as I go onto the 407 There was an OPP LEO hiding behind the onramp shooting laser(from behind of course) at those who were just making the bend before the road straightened and it was time for you to accelerate & merge. A quarter mile ahead was beastly OPP Chevy Tahoe tucked to the side waiting to get the information from the laser operator and initiate a pull over. Had my Sti Driver not gone off(Laser Alert..it said)...I would have never known...it was the most sneaky trap I have ever seen ( shooting laser from behind the onramp...where the limit was 30KMH/19MPH ...I was actually late for an interview THANK GOD I wasn't speeding too much or else I would've been nabbed and been VERRRY late for the interview and out a few hundred dollars.
So that's the story now...I think I should get a jammer. The way I see it I would rather pay 700 for a jammer than get 2 tickets for 200-300 for speeding...financially this makes sense too...if you factor in the insurance increases aswell.
If yesterday was any indication...LEOs do shoot from behind in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area)
What worries my is if I get a jammer and get shot by laser and the laser operator notices the error that his laser gun will read (or jam code)...I'll possibly be pulled over right?...jammers confiscated...maybe even radar detector...and then I'm really out a ton of money....
A forum member told me on another forum
"If u ever decide getting some laser jammers, or maybe u already have some on your car, get LI only, they are the BEST:
But also VERY expensive!
A friend of mine in Toronto has got LIs on his damn expensive (over $200k) luxury car, I dont have his money so... that's life!
You need only the 2-head LI, you do NOT need LI heads for the rear plate, no cop is lasering you from behind!
What else, all LJs send out an error code easily seen on any laser gun display, then it's up to the cop to take the most appropriate measure, pull you over regardless of your speed (including let's say 60 km/h in a 60 km/h zone) and start determining why he got that error code on his laser gun display!
The LJ heads are very easily visible with naked eye regardless how good you install them on the front end of your car, my friend's car is just a perfect example of this, you gotta be well prepared for some VERY good explanation when ANY cop might ask you about those black heads on your car!
The guy who sells the LI, the only authorized LI seller in North America, is down in Florida, he's a good and friendly fellow, I've met him once, he's name is Cliff and he's driving a freakin' expensive Mercedes with 4 LI heads, 2 at the front and 2 at the rear, well, he's got the money for 4-head LI, no Florida cop laser you from behind but hey, it's a free country, you got the money, free to buy anything you want, right?
Also, you WILL attract lots of attention with those 2-head LJs in front of your car, if they confiscate the LJ they will confiscate your STI as well, so... be aware of everything!
Well he hasn't had the privelage of being lasered from behind...obviously...
I really want to purchase a laser jammer but don't want to loose it to a LEO!!!
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
