    and everytime i drive down to florida from N.Y. you have to remove of turn off... they can tell if someone is jaming them...
    Yea, photo cop is no points, just $200 fine. I pegged the limit of the fines. They have fees for 15+, 20+, and 30+, but no 40+. At least I got a couple of nice pics of my car flying down the road. I checked the speed against the lines on the road and it was correct.

    They send you 2 pics, 0.2 seconds apart. The cameras are hidden in the tunnel, its not like a car parked on the side of the road. I'm not sure how much safer cameras make it, I think its a revenue generator, like parking tickets. Then again, I wont be doing 85 in that tunnel again.

    The exhaust sure sounded sweet though!

    This is the first and last speeding ticket I got in my Jeep just a month before buying my V. Photo cops suck!

    Re: Radar detectors/jammers revisited...

    Since i bought my car used...there had already been a detector installed. I have the K-40 blue-tooth model that is pretty bad-azz. It tells you what kind of radar (K, KA, Z, whatever) and even the direction that it's coming from (front or rear). There are sensitivity settings for city and highway, and there's setting for voice, tones, or silent funtion. There are no wires since it's blue-tooth, and it's very stealthy. I live just south of DC where they are illeagal...but i can just turn it off with a push of the remote button. The sensors are located in the licence plate braket in the back, and another couple sensors up front. I know it was pricey as hell though....installed it was North of 2K. But does it work? In a word...YES.

    It may be illegal to operate but for most jurisdictions, it is not illegal to own one. What some people do is keep a crappy old detector in case they ever get caught with one and do the old switchero. The new BEL STI is supposed to be invisible to all the newest radar detector "detectors". I had a a laser deflector in my last car and it worked like a charm.

    hope this helps

    Radar detectors might be legal to own, but in Virginia and D.C. they are illegal in cars. This is why radar detectors may be consficated in these areas. A friend of mine had his crushed by an officer in Virginia. It was not on, just left in the windshield.

    Click here and scroll down to the bottom "Radar Detectors"

    West Virginia takes it one step further and says it is illegal to own or operate a detector or jammer in a passenger vehicle.

    Would love to get an AN/ALQ-131 ECM pod. That will take care of the radar detector for good. Just need a 28V source.

    This is what I am installing for the camera systems...

    http://www.stealthkit.com/

    no kidding... Cameras are not cops and therefore should not be admissable like this. I have never gotten a camera ticket, but I am just going to fire this thing up everytime I go through a red lite camera intersection.

    Cool but in NY it is illegal to have a cover over license plate --clear or otherwise. I'd like to use the spray that out on the market that combats photo cameras but I don't know if it works.

    My V1 is now 8 years old, has been through 3 custom installs (damn wire keeps getting shorter!), and is good for avoiding at least 2 tickets per year.
