    Default Arrest over speed trap 'jammer'

    BBC NEWS

    south Wales motorist has become the first person in Britain to be arrested for using an electronic jammer to confuse speed traps.
    The driver was found with a laser diffuser device in the vehicle by police in south Wales under a drive called the Safety Camera Partnership.

    The gadget, which is also known as a jammer, works by alerting the driver to laser speed detectors and temporarily stopping it from taking a speed reading.

    The car had been recorded speeding on six different occasions around Cardiff and the south Wales valleys.

    Wait a second - what was he charged with? :? Light waves are not regulated by FCC or any other commission. Lidar wavelengths just out of the visible spectrum, so he can't be charged with distraction. Maybe he can go to court, set a precedent, and be a hero :P

    might be not regulated by FCC but if Jammer ARE ILLEGAL then he could be charged for interfering with police operation :?

    While the legislation has been passed making it illegal to use radar diffusers, there is currently no legislation in place regarding the laser devices," said John Rowling from the Safety Camera Partnership.

    The FCC doesn't regulate electronics in the UK.
