Wellllll... I can attest that my Escort 9500ci has defeated LIDAR on several occassions.

These days, the most "dangerous" detection mechanism for a driver remains to be "instant-on" radar and the latest generation photo-radar vans. I am guessing that the new photo-radar setups use something other than microwave to do an initial clocking and only activate the radar if you're speeding (since that is one of the legally recognized means of clocking speed).

Great photo, BTW.
