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.
