    Default how come most veil testing videos

    they all point at the headlights. does the LEO always point at the headlights? from some of the videos i can see as soon the red dot point away from the headlight covered with veil its get the reading right away.

    Veil basically kills the retroreflective surfaces of your car. The points that an officer aims at is the license plate, and the headlight.

    If you get a license plate cover, coat both sides with veil, that will pretty much take care of your license plate.

    Usually if an officer doesnt get a reading off the plate, he will pan out to the headlights to attempt to get a reading.

    Shouldn't you guys be letting Santa do his deliveries? Don't forget to put out the cookies and milk.

    Cber, what you may be observing is when a car gets really close to the laser gun the remaing/residual reflection of a vehicle itself is allowing for a reading. In otherwords, the car's surface is actually less stealth than the primary targets of the laser operator, the car's headlights (and/or license plate).

    What you are observing is VEIL actually doing its job. If Veil weren't so effective your would be able to pick the car up almost immediately from a much greater distance because of the high reflectivity of untreated headlights.

    By Veiling them, distances to getting readings are dramactically cut and laser jammer punch through (long-distance) are eliminated.
