    Default Lidar jamming in CA

    Hi I live in CA and it appears that radar is soon to become a thing of the past.
    I have seen lidar guns being used frequently were I live and according to most people if your RD sounds off to lidar its just telling you that you have a ticket.

    So the only real way to ensure not gettting a ticket is to use a lidar jammer like the m-20. Now from what i heard it's defianly illeagle to use lidar jamming stuff in CA.

    First if you have a lidar jammer on your car and it jams and officers gun will he instantly know that you have one?

    Secont i saw a movie of the m20 working and when the gun was shot at the car it had bright flashes of light coming from jammer on the car. It looked like the camra had night vision on so i was wondering if the jammer actually sends visable flashes of light at the gun when it is being targeted.

    Third if pulled over after the officer had his gun jammed does he have the right to 1ST search your vehical 2NT tow your vehical 3RD bring you to jail NOT for speeding but for haveing a lidar jammer on your car.

    Forth what are the reprecussins of being caught with a lidar jammer? jail time? huge fine?

    5th If you dont have a lidar jammer and you are going 85 in a 65 zone but you have either the escort-x50/bel-x65 and a ton of veil on head lights and licence plate Also a pure black, low profile car BUT not a lidar jammer what are the chances of slowing down in time? Also the officer can't judge your speed(just to make it souly on the lidar gun)

    Very grateful for any posts/comments!

    Welcome to the board! Yes jammers are illegal in CA. I don't know the penalties there, but I imagine you can find out by doing a search. I know where I live it is 1 year in jail, $1000 fine, and confiscation of the equipment.

    If you jam a LEO you should immediately get to legal speeds and turn off the jammer. If you leave the jammer on you risk attacting attention. So the key is just using the jammer long enough to get your speed in check. I don't know the rules in CA, but I know here if they suspect a jammer they do have the right to search the vehicle. So best not to get pulled over. I wouldn't drive around at extreame speeds just because you install a jammer... The LEO can still pull you over based on observed speed. So if it is obvious your speeding your going to get a performance award.

    It depends on the gun being used, and the equipment you have as to your odds of outbraking a lidar attack. I would have to say based on GOL numbers that I wouldn't risk trying it without a jammer.

    Ouch, CA is strict on that stuff. Minnesota has made jammers illegal too, but you only get $180 fine and confiscation of stuff... so not quite as harsh :?

    Those are good questions!!
    I too live in CA and am looking for a Jammer.

    Does anyone know the actual penalty?

    Has anyone actually had a LEO look for and or find a Jammer??

    Are some Jammers harder to detect?????

    Thanks,
    DH

    I have a couple members of my MC Club CA motor officers and they all thought that jammers did not work. Showed them my set up on my Harley and they were impressed.

    They all said that they would had never known what to look for (so there are two CA motors in SD that you have to watch out for)

    Sell 5 units a week to CA and never had one client come back saying that they had been cited.

    I guess you can buy and install them in CA.

    There are no guarantees but it sounds reasonable to me. The quicker you are about shutting off the jammer the better your odds of getting by without any unwanted attention.

    yeah id say set it to 4 seconds or so...that should be enough to jam, slow down and not rise suspision...they LEO will just think he couldnt get a lock...this happens all the time when using lidar.
