Radar Laser Detector Guide for Edmonton

Why do we write a radar detector buyer’s guide for Edmonton, Alberta specifically? The answer is simple. Edmonton and the surrounding 780-areas are known to have the most ridiculous speed enforcements in Canada.

Whether the reason for such police enforcement and ticketing is road safety or for collecting revenue for the city and province, we are here to provide radar and laser countermeasure recommendations for motorists who live in Edmonton or frequently travel through Northern Alberta.

  1. The best protection from cops is a radar detector and laser jammer. I have only spent one state trooper using laser, and of course, it’s one that has led me to get laser jammers this year. You can now operate jammers in two ways. The smarter way is that many of them have a jam for X amount of seconds and then change into parking sensors. Good trick, by the way.
