I live in California and both Laser and Radar jamming is illegal. I know many people use the laser jammer anyways. I have read several times that no one has really had any issues with it and that if caught its normally a slap on the wrist or minor equipment ticket.
However, I have read that (active) radar jamming can result in much harsher punishment. Is this true and if so why is laser more or less not that big of a deal? Or any overall thoughts/experience with this topic?
