    Default Laser shield on rear plate?

    Is it legal to put the laser shield on your rear plate? I suppose that if you have a front plate it is necessary for coverage, but I don't have a front plate.

    Does it really serve its purpose when placed on a rear plate? What are the odds of being lasered from behind?

    I have seen a few laser from behind videos on the board, and I have witnessed a laser from behind about 2 weeks ago (first ever)

    Lasershield on the rear wont do anythin for ya. There is just to much rear of a car to have any hope on protecting it (maybe an AL6)

    You may have a slight chance if your car is all black

    If you already have a jammer, perhaps adding laser shield in the rear as well as Veil might make your chances of getting a rear laser ticket more slim.

    However, i doubt that lasershield on its own would actually save you, on top of that you RD may not even pick up a rear laser signal to warn you.

    And i would think it might be obvious because if a cop is following you, he'd see it very clearly.

    As stated the odds of being lasered form behind are slim (but it is very possible...dont get a false sense of security).


    Dilip is correct that with veil, a jammer, adding a lasershield (for how relatively cheap it is) may be worth while, but then again just do to the profile of most cars from the rear, the rear laser protection is (by an order of magnitutude) harder then front end protection. If you don't have veil and or a jammer already, getting a lasershield would be nearly all but pointless.

    "Baby got back I like big butts and I cant just lie"........ Anyway Seth nailed it right on the head putting a laser shield on the rear is a waste of time. Same goes for Veil on the rear.

    Yes it'd be really interesting to see the test results.

    If it's close range i'm sure you're toast, but if some reasont he cop only lasers you after you're quite far away from him u might stand a chance

    So since "color" of the vehicle plays a part in detectability.....does this mean that people with bright, shiny, silver metallic type cars should scrap the idea of laser protection altogether? Does this mean that a bright, shiny silver, yellow or white car is already practically toast just by virtue of the color....even if they add Veil, LaserShield, a jammer, etc.?
