The local press are running a story that the latest Leica XV2 speed camera used in Europe has been approved for use in the UK

It is a highly portable unit which takes a picture of the driver and car reg going towards it by video camera, detection is by carbon dioxide infra-red lazer, two are being deployed in Devon and Cornwall.

They say that radar detectors are useless against these, (obviously) but does anyone know if laser detectors / jammers (illegal) are any good. I understand that the lazer works out the vehicle speed and takes the picture in 0.01 seconds therefore making detection of it by the driver a waste of time.
