We all drive responsibly for the most part. However, from time to time we are either running late to a big meeting or event, or get frustrated from that slow-moving vehicle in front of us who seems to be doing everything but focusing on the road. That’s when we hit the accelerator and act out a scene from The Fast and the Furious.
The problem is, we’re not on a movie set with stunt men, directors, and a closed road with no law enforcement. This was real life and now you must explain to the officer who is pulling you over why you were speeding. All for about three seconds of glory and relief.
Law Enforcement Technology is Advancing
Technology has come a long way in every aspect of life, including how cops out on the road look for speeders. While radar has been used for decades to measure speed, and of course is still being used today, the most advanced form of speed tracking comes today in the form of lasers.
Police lasers use LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), which works by sending a narrow beam of light that is specifically aimed at just one vehicle at a time. Laser guns are much faster and more accurate than radar guns when it comes to checking your speed. And because they don’t rely on radar technology, the radar detector you may already have in your vehicle can’t do a thing to protect you.
How Can I Protect Myself?
Ideally, you could just never speed to keep yourself out of this kind of situation. But we all slip up from time to time. A laser detector will alert you to the laser gun signal being beamed at you, but if the police are waiting just over a rise or around a bend, that warning may come too late.
The answer: laser shifters. These advanced drive smarter tools are specifically designed to offer the best protection available against every type of laser gun being used on the road today. They offer a specific laser protection that radar and laser detectors simply can’t match. They go one step further: they make it next to impossible for a laser gun to accurately read your speed.
A laser shifter works by detecting an incoming laser beam, just like a laser detector does, but then it also sends back a false signal. Top quality laser shifters instantly identify not only that a laser is being used, but they also use the laser pattern to know exactly which brand and model of gun is being used. They generate interference in the reflected signal. When the laser gun gets the messed-up signal back, it can’t make heads or tails of it, which means it can’t measure your speed. Providing you time to make the best driving decision possible to steer out of a potential ticket.
So, What Does That Mean?
We are all human we all tend to speed from time to time. If you are the type of person who is very disciplined and does not get easily fed up when out on the road, more power to you. But if you are the kind of person who needs to be reminded to slow down from time to time, laser shifters can give you the reminder you need before it ends up costing you big time.
Be sure to note that laser shifters are illegal in some states and jurisdictions, so always be sure to check out your local laws before you get one installed. To ensure best performance, laser shifters also require professional install to obtain peak performance.
