I am new to the site, and new to the whole radar detectors. My friend had one and I noticed it helped him a lot with not getting tickets. I got a ticket and I don't really want to get one again .
I live in Southern California, mostly driving in LA county area.
1) Is it legal to have a radar detector and/or laser jammer?
2) What would you recommend me buying to protect myself for under $300 total?
Thank you very much!
