    Default How does Laser Viel look?

    I have some questions about Laser Veil, does it darken everything a lot? Is that how it works? So if I put it on my headlights will they dim? Also if I cover my license plate with it, will it make it unreadable? Do I need to use a cover over my plate to use Laser Veil?

    Sorry for the barrage of questions. Any pictures if you have them would be nice.

    Thanks.

    Default Veil

    There will be a "grayish tint" to your headlamps/ On this page there are some photos: http://www.radarbusters.com/support/veil/02.asp (along with FAQ on Veil)


    Your plate will also have a grayish tint, but is not that noticeable

    Here in Virginia it is illegal to use, so I was concerned about cops seeing it. I would like to add that it is VERY noticable on your license plate, but not so much on your headlights. So I applied VEIL to the headlights and then got a laser shield for my license plate which is not noticable at all. Roy sells both.

    How is it illegal? Since VEIL is so new how do they even know about it? Or is there just a general statute addressing "interfering?"

    We never stop at looking for ways to further improve the performance/appearance of VEIL's products.

    We'll keep y'all posted with new developments!

    Man stealthjamal. The only thing you are missing is a black bra. By the way how do you like the Escort X50?

    happya$$,

    The Escort x50 rocks! I don't need a black bra because my car is black with no refelective front surfaces except the headlights which I covered with VEIL. Well the license plate also, but got laser shield for that too. I think it's an overkill cause I have the ZR3, but I said what the hell and got more stuff too.


    The Veil Guy,
    Here is some Code of Virginia for ya. VA laws suck, but they don't seem to enforce the radar detector law. Almost every cop that runs radar parks hidden on the side of the road with CONSTANT ON radar. I've only seen instant on setup twice in VA, and I drive a lot. Awesome if you have a detector here. Go to Maryland and you find a lot more instant on and laser.

    A. It shall be unlawful for any person to operate a motor vehicle on the highways of the Commonwealth when such vehicle is equipped with any device or mechanism, passive or active, to detect or purposefully interfere with or diminish the measurement capabilities of any radar, laser, or other device or mechanism employed by law-enforcement personnel to measure the speed of motor vehicles on the highways of the Commonwealth for law-enforcement purposes. It shall be unlawful to use any such device or mechanism on any such motor vehicle on the highways. It shall be unlawful to sell any such device or mechanism in the Commonwealth. However, provisions of this section shall not apply to any receiver of radio waves utilized for lawful purposes to receive any signal from a frequency lawfully licensed by any state or federal agency.

    This section shall not be construed to authorize the forfeiture to the Commonwealth of any such device or mechanism.

Any unclaimed devices may be destroyed on court order after six months have elapsed from the final date for filing an appeal.

    Except as provided in subsection B of this section, the presence of any such prohibited device or mechanism in or on a motor vehicle on the highways of the Commonwealth shall constitute prima facie evidence of the violation of this section. The Commonwealth need not prove that the device or mechanism in question was in an operative condition or being operated.

    License plat law didn't make it. Here it is.
