Laser jammers, often referred to as laser defense, laser shifter or blocker, are infrared transceivers that prevent a laser speed gun from instantly acquiring target vehicle's speed. The laser jammer then warns the driver with both visual and audible alerts, to slow down, and subsequently avoid a laser speeding ticket.
Does a Laser Jammer Work in Canada?
We get asked this question frequently. LIDAR is used extensively across Canada, especially in major cities like Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal, as well as many rural towns. A radar detector's laser detection does not give the driver time to react if going too fast. Watch the real-world encounter below, and you will understand how a laser jammer can save you a laser speeding ticket.
Different types and brands of Laser Jammers?
We'll give you a little history of laser jammers. The industry came a long way since a decade ago, and it started to evolve quickly since 2006. At the time, there were LED-based Escort Shifter ZR3, Blinder M27 / M47 laser jammer, and high powered laser-diode-based Antilaser's AL8 and Laser Pro Park. Over the years, there were many knock off brands such as DriveSmart and Laser Elite. Since 2011, the market was split between top contenders AL G9, Laser Interceptor, and Escort Shifter Pro (identical to LI), and Blinder HP905. None of the above blocks the DragonEye which claimed to be "un-jammable" until 2014.
Today, we have the 12th generation from Antilaser, the AL Priority, proven and tested to be the best laser defense in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. AL Priority is also the only laser system to defeat the infamous DragonEye (including the latest Compact and Full-size versions with ECCM anti-jam mode), Laser Ally and TruSpeed S which are all deadly VPR laser guns spreading quickly across Canada.
