Hey everyone. Why is it that everyone who sees or hears me talking about radar detectors say they are illegal in NY state no matter how many times I they are only illegal in VA and DC? I even had a university cop (state troopers on SUNY campuses) tell me that my detector was illegal (but no screaming, no ticket and no demanding I take it down) while he was writing an incident report when some idiot backed into my truck in the college parking lot. I even had a town cop tell me at a gas station where multiple cops were parked getting donuts that leaving my detector on at close range to the police cars with it alerting (Ka 34.7 in this case) will "burn it out". They are legal in NY and most of these claims are false, right???
