While waiting in a dr office this am, I was reading the July Motor Trend review of the Audi A8 ($125,000). They did a very long trip from mexico to canada, making sure to diverge to the interesting 2 lane roads. I thought it was funny? interesting? that they complained that the only ticket they got was coming down this beautiful mountain pass with great sweerers, doing 80, and some JERK coming up the hill flipped the radar on and nailed them.
:p It was our WSP on Blewett Pass going N.

Couldn't figure out what the acronym JERK stood for, they showed a pic with the WSP, but from the context, and the way they used all caps, I don't think they were just calling the cop a jerk?

Kurt not everything is an acronym, outside of the computer world :)

Yep, Last time I went over Blewett (a couple of weeks ago) there was a WSP turning his/her radar on and off. Escort 8500 saved me! But only because there was someone in front of me or I would have been nailed. With instant on radar/laser if you are the only one on the road (or at the front of a pack) you will be busted even with a detector unfortunately!

Steveah, but if you have radar jammer you'll have a few seconds to respond before radar/laser unit reads the true speed. mine says you have 1-3 seconds to respond before the jamming signal clears. that could save you 10mph in the reading and be the difference between reckless driving and just speeding.

I've heard of Laser jammers (Lidatek) that work but not Radar jammers. Have you got a top secret unit?

This guy say's jammers are a fraud against the public and don't work and he's willing to pay 50K to anyone who can prove they have an effective radar jammer.

I would buy one today if I could beleive they are the real deal.

Well his article does state that active and passive RADAR jamming units are illegal. however...LASER jamming units are legal in most states. and those work. some way better than others.

No wonder you were eager to lead us from Boise, ID to Ontario, OR last April!

You're leading all rides from now on :p

Make sure to follow veeery close behind. He has the tendency to make sudden right hand turns at slow stoplights. :happy57:

Radar Roy says passive radar/laser jammers don't work! He say's he'll pay $50,000 for a passive jammer that works.

Mike, take him up on the offer and let us know how it turns out.

i'm pretty sure all laser jamming units on the market are active. he even sells laser jammers on his site. if he's knocking them, why would he sell them?

My mistake. He was saying the radar jammers are junk and illegal. Looks like the laser units might be worthwhile. Wonder how many LEO's are using radar compared to laser?

I believe radar allows them quicker target acquisition at the sacrifice of target accuracy.

I was quizing a motor officer on his bike one day and he explained: The Radar is his shotgun and the Laser is his sniper rifle.

you can tell what they are using too on the highways. laser, they are usually outside the vehicle with device resting on the hood or roof and holding it like a sniper rifle(with atleast 2 chase cars within 1/4 mile proximity), where as the radar they just sit in the car.

I was told the primary target for the laser weapons is the license plate for its reflectivity, hence the placement just above it is recommended.

I'm not sure where a LEO would aim a laser at a bike with its sharp edges and low reflectivity in front.
