"Blinder" laser jammer?
« on: May 09, 2006, 12:25:00 AM »
Just curious if anyone has seen/heard of these "Blinder" laser jammers before???

Someone on LegacyGT.com is putting a group buy together. I have never heard of one of these "jammers" type things that actually work, but from what people (with personal experience) are saying over there, it sounds like they might be the real deal.

Here is a site with demonstration video: (The "Radar Roy Video" is the most convincing one to watch IMHO)

And here is the group buy thread if anyone is interested. With my insurance rates where they are right now I'm pretty tempted...

Did you see this in the preamble?

Quote from: Group Buy from LegacyGT.com
So what can we do? Well, fortunately for most of us, laser jamming is still an option, since itís technically just the transmission of light, and so it's not an FCC controlled transmission like radar jamming is. I say ďmost of usĒ because some states (as of this posting) have specifically banned laser and radar jammers, namely California, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Virginia and Washington DC.


And this in the legalese:

Quote from: Group Buy from LegacyGT.com
California, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Virginia and Washington DC have specifically banned radar and laser jammers, as I mentioned before. For this reason, I will not ship to addresses in these areas. I simply donít want to deal with potential liability and legality issues in these states.

from what I have heard... laser jammers don't really jam.. but just give you a 1/2sec to a second to slow down... and then they just tell you your going to get a ticket.

Some laser jammers are programmed to only go off for a few seconds, only because it makes the manufacture look like thier not encouraging speeding.

I think Valentine 1 has a full on front or  front and read kit laser jammer setup.  I would trust them for a product that works.

Since laser jammers are optical they need to be unobstructed on the outside of the car near the lisense plates to generally work well and you need to keep them clean.

Remember its only a crime if your convicted ;)
