Policy Position on Laser and Radar Detectors and Cell Phone Application (Apps)

AAMVA opposes the manufacture and sale of electronic devices, used by individuals in motor vehicles to detect the presence of, or jam the signal from, speed-measuring equipment in use by law enforcement. AAMVA also opposes the development and use of cell phone apps that allow individuals to determine specific locations where law enforcement officers are working. AAMVA supports concurrent jurisdiction between federal and state agencies in the enforcement of laws that prohibit manufacture and sale of such devices and apps.
