Re: Radar detector/jammers

Gee, nobody said "it" yet, so I'll say it ...

I advise not to get a jammer, 'cause:

  Your fellow drivers with (dumb) detectors may receive false alarms.

  The legal, grey area of getting caught with a  "passive" detector is
  bad enough. I hate to think what a transmitting jammer would do to
  to a city's coffer.

If there's no fast car in front of you on a lonely stretch of interstate,
and they're using instant-on radar, I'm not sure if it's avoidable. 

In addition to the reviews on detectors (already mentioned here), Car
and Driver had an article way back about good observation techniques-
semi-obvious things, such as, be careful near overpasses.
