Most standard radar detectors will not protect you from a Police Lidar Speeding Ticket - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
Radar detectors while maybe frowned upon by police and courts alike are not illegal in California with a few exceptions. Radar detectors are not permitted to be used on Military Bases or in certain Commercial Vehicles. Unlike radar detectors, radar jammers are illegal.
While police traffic enforcement with radar guns is well-known, laser or LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) has also become popular among various police departments. Most standard radar detectors will not be able to alert users to the presence of laser (which uses laser light pulses rather than radar radio waves for speed detection), because the laser isn’t detectable at all times, only when it’s directed at your car. By the time the dectector alerts you to the presence of LIDAR, you are probably already the target. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
