    Its been illegal in Australia for a while now. This year they introduced changes to take it from a $1000, 3 point fine, to a $2000, 9 point fine. If you get caught with one, there is 3/4 of your license gone. And if you happen to be speeding a little, you lose your license...

    I'm glad they don't have them in the US yet.... and hopefully never will.

    and in the US, each state generally makes its own laws. Like radar detectors are legal everywhere except Virginia and Washington D.C. where there is strict enforcement since Many people comuting from Maryland use them. I used to just take it off the window and stick it between seats, which worked ( aside from laser )


    Hopefully areas like Australia where the stuff is still illegal will have an increase in public knowledge of technology and question the laws. Sometimes that works.
