Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Chris asks: Which is the best radar detector and laser deflector? Portable and permanent vehicle installation?
My reply: I strongly recommend the Valentine1, which has just been updated to include a new “junk K” filter – to address the issue that all radar detectors have in separating out the false alerts generated by modern vehicle driver assistance tech. The new unit is outstanding – and portable. It can also be mounted permanently and out of sight, with a remote display that can be easily hidden from the eyes of the swine.
Laser deflectors are another matter. Your best bet here is a non-reflective paint surface, or minimizing reflective surfaces, such as shiny license plates. A little dirt can be very helpful – and it’s free!
Laser (and radar) jammers are hugely illegal but one can find the plans for them, if interested. Just be very careful.
