    I hear if you put tin foil on your antenna it'll block all radar signals.

    I've seen a lot of tests and I've never heard of any of these working.

    Radar Scramblers are illegal. Radar detectors are legal. (And totally not worth it if I might add.)

    1. Makes you less attractive to the opposite sex
    2. Is a lot less fun
    3. Is the leading cause of monotoneism (I think I just made that word up)

    All they are good for is to tell you are going to get a ticket or someone has a alarm on. Save your money.

    Disagree. If a radar detector saves you from one ticket, you are likely to recoup its cost (assuming a fairly decent one for $150 or so), especially when you consider what insurance will do to you for the ticket.

    I had one for awhile until it got stolen.. you still cant be blasting down the roads at 20 over, but itll very much keep you from a 5-15 over ticket (which more often than not comes from just driving a comfortable speed on a road that was designed for that speed, but has the speed limit set arbitrarily low)

    Here's the $1,000,000,000,000.63 question. Will a radar detector help prevent me from getting pulled over for my tinted windows?

    Re: Radar detectors scramblers

    OK -- I am running in a Car Rally -- there will be spot checks along the way on speeds (well below legal limit) and I want to be warned of these as soon as possible in an attempt to win the rally -- now does anyone have any useful information???

    Re: Radar detectors scramblers

    if theyre using radar, and its left on, youll be able to 'hear' them a couple miles out. if theyre using laser, they could just pop it on you as you pass and you'd have no way to adjust speed in time.

    This is exactly what I have heard from various sources. They are getting better with tech to bypass your purchases. After all, they are trying to save lives out there.
