Laser Shifting/Jamming is obviously more expensive to purchase and more difficult to install.
Why do LEO's still use radar guns? It seems departments would have all switched to all laser by now. Are radar guns and laser guns used for different applications/circumstances?
Why are radar detectors and laser shifters still legal?
I'd assume using radar detectors is more common than laser shifting. Are those individuals just accepting the risk of getting hit with a laser shot, or is it a calculated risk because laser is much more rare?
I'm interested in getting a radar detector (probably the new Escort Passport
Max), but I don't want to give myself a false sense of security, just to end up getting hit by laser.
Is there a way for me to visually determine if an LEO is using radar or laser technology?
I have wiring concerns with both radar and laser. I'm surprised we don't have rechargeable radar detectors and Bluetooth sensors on Laser Interceptors these days (maybe we do?). Are we really believing that Bluetooth is too slow? All of this wiring makes sharing between vehicles pretty difficult.
