About The Test
Both the laser jammer and radar detector testing locations were performed on the Sun Valley Parkway in “Surprise” Arizona. These sections of straight paved roadways made up with with rolling hills and dips, experiencing moderate highway traffic. In both tests we attempted to simulate real-world police radar and laser speed traps that you would likely encounter while driving.
