i apologize to op for hijacking but i just had a question to all the people here w jammers because im looking into getting one. are your jammer systems undefeated? have any of you still got tickets from a laser trap, assuming the system was fully operational and installed correctly. thanks for replies and to op for putting up w the question
You are right, you are posting in the wrong section. This section would be more appropriate, but I'll answer you regardless. I've had a couple of issues over the years, but never a ticket. Any issue that I had was always found during testing.

Yes you must test it to find any weaknesses before you think your unstoppable and even after adding another layer of counter measures you still need to be vigilant.

Or in many states an estimated speed will fly in court as will a timed (point to point) averaged speed from an air assisted unit (airplane, helicopter, drone... Etc)

Here's how you get nailed with laser jammers:
(cop is up on the exit to the right, nails me the moment I came center with the lane, very selective IO, ticket cost me $350 for the lawyer, $350 for the reduced +14 over PSL ticket which doesn't report to MVR/insurance in GA)

At the end of the day a PT can occur, but there are a LOT of variables. Your install, how straight it is, how much it moves when you ram the brakes, what gun the officer is using, where in specific he's shooting and how close/far that is from the head, etc. A good install, well tested, can help you find holes and plug them, or you just accept that "the chances are low enough that someone would get a PT within the first 3 second of hitting my car" you know you could scrub off enough speed to get near enough PSL to not get a ticket. If you can't scrub from 100-70 in 3-4 seconds you may need to upgrade your braking.

Sometimes I hate myself because whenever I see a post like this I never answer the question because I assume everyone is a cop or getting information for cops or legislation. Silly ol me lol

Timed point to point will fly.. but only the hillbilliest court will accept an estimated speed. I've been let go on many stops because they couldn't get a reading at 90 degrees... They usually give you a verbal or written and on your marry way.

Here in the city if Des Moines. Central and home of the Iowa courts, capitol city - estimated speeds fly through the entire state. Officers are specifically trained in speed estimation. Their tickets hold up all the time. Other states similar.

How in the hell do they assign a fine to it. That is bass ackwards.

Guilty until proven innocent. There's no science or proof.

That should mean I can go on the highway and do 30 mph and say visually I was doing the speed limit.

Here's another example of another state.


Officers are trained and required to be within a certain margin of error. They can testify to ALOT based on field experience. Also in many areas you can be cited for 'excessive speed' or 'traveling in excess of safe speed' without a number attached to it.

You'd be shocked how scary close some officers are (within +/-1mph).... You can still challenge it in court but they usually still stand. They don't need radar.
