You may have seen the ads in newspapers and magazines, it is a device called The Phazer, but does it work?
The Phazer is here, a device is that promises to jam police radar allowing you to slip pass through radar traps like a stealth bomber.
Ads claim that the device bounces radar signals back to the with an added FM signal, claiming to give police radar an electronic lobotomy.
The Phazer costs about $200, not much to it, just attach it to your windshield.
Testing was performed the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office test track in California.
A “tattle tail” speed sign was set up and The Phazer had no effect.
Deputy Bill Sommers takes a Falcon radar gun and gets lock in at 58 mph with a car equipped with a Phazer.
Bill then uses a laser gun and gets a reading every time at 58 mph. “Nailed again” at 1,000 feet away.
If your looking at staying out of trouble, skip this product.
