I believe the new escort/passport detector remembers the radar features on your car and ignores them. In CA, the CHP uses Ka band radar on its moving vehicles which helps. Someone mentioned laser detector being a ticket detector...if you are the only car on an open road then this is true, however, the detector works by seeing the laser bounce off other cars and thus if there is traffic ahead of you, you may have a chance to slow down in time.

Anyone have success with one of these laser "shifter" (jammer) systems?
