    I think in MD they are a secondary offense, like when I got pulled for speeding (yeah, go figure, lol), they had "Radar" checked off, but it was a warning anyway, cop was cool. DE its cool, I think, never had a problem.

    VA likes to brag about its law against radar, entering VA last time I was there, they had a sign bigger than the "Welcome to Virginia" sign that said "Radar Detectors are illegal!" lol

    Is it true that cops have detectors that can tell if a car has a radar detector in it? Like a radar detector detector.
