    Snoopers react to radar and laser signals...regardless of the source..gatso, laser gun etc..

    There were moves about 5 years ago to make them illegal, but I don't know the legal stand-point at this point in time.

    As such there is a technicality that makes them illegal which is...(or so I believe)

    You are allowed to receive information from police sources, such as radio transmissions and laser beams from gatso's etc...
    However it is illegal to ACT UPON the information that you get from these transmissions.


    Speed / Safety camera location info is freely available, and is considered legal to act upon.

    I'm sure one of our many officers on the forum will confirm this one way or the other.

    My understanding is detecting radar & laser is not illegal, trying to interfere with them is (jammers/laser scramblers).

    To be honest, laser works so fast (milliseconds) that when your snooper beeps to say you're being lasered, before your foot even reaches the brake pedal, they already have a speed reading. It also depends on range, close up the laser is very narrow and I believe they tend to aim at the number plate (usually a vertical surface on most cars) so your snooper may not even detect it even if you do get lasered.

    Again with the radar, you are really hoping that it picks up radar bouncing of the car in front or one coming the other way. I used to have a snooper and found it detected mainly Tesco automatic doors, I'm not sure it ever detected a camera. Even the Gatso's, they are rear facing so the radar is being beamed away from you until you pass the camera.

    The best way of avoiding a speeding ticket imo is a combination of using POI in a Sat Nav, sharp awareness of the road ahead at all times and mainly driving within the law or only sufficiently above the limit where it is unlikely you'd get pulled for it.
