by the way, how do you make this sort of thing a hyperlink? Is it automatic? do i just need to highlight it and click the 'link' button in the text formatting area?

OK, have a good one - i know i will!

I was aware of the existence of radar detector detectors, but as the article states, the bell and the valentine one are both pretty good at hiding from them, and I've also heard that they only really care if you have one in a commercial vehicle... that's a big no-no... also, the valentine one has a remote indicator so the main unit may be hidden in the dash of your car and the indicator can be mounted discreetly... I'm curious if the laser jammers could be hidden inside the bumper - anybody know about that? Either way, is the penalty worse for speeding, or for having a radar detector? I have been driving for 10 years now, each car getting progressively faster, and have yet to get a moving violation of any sort, all that time without a detector - it's pretty easy not to get rolled if you actually pay attention to what's going on around you. Just thought about getting a detector recently since I find myself driving a lot faster these days in me new car.[:'(]

Aren't there only two states that have declared radar detectors illegal?

Well in texas as i have heard, it is not illegal but cops just dont like the fact that you have them. b/c i got pulled over and a cop saw a crappy one that my friend gave me... but didnt say anything. but Laser jammers are infact illegal that one i'm pretty sure.

Radar jammers are illegal and it's a felony. Laser jammers/shifters are only illegal in certain states.
