No. They should be illegal everywhere. It's the only device I can think of whose sole purpose is to help the user break the law.

No. For those who have them I think they're a waste of money. As a former LEO, I use to keep the radar off until I was approached by a vehicle that I estimated to be speeding and would then flip the switch on.

NOT ANYMORE

THE "INSTANT ON" RADAR THAT TROOPERS BEGAN TO USE, WAS JUST COSTING ME MONEY. WHEN I TRAVEL, I JUST SET MY CRUISE CONTROL TO 7 OVER AND NEVER EVEN FLINCH, EBEN WHEN I PASS A LEO.
