Are radar detectors illegal?

Radar detectors are illegal only in Virginia, Washington DC, and most parts of Canada.  They are also illegal in all 50 states for commercial drivers, such as truck drivers and taxi drivers.

If you are not a commercial driver, and you are not in Virginia or Washington DC or Canada, then it is perfectly legal to use a radar detector.

What is the range of radar detectors?

In flat, open conditions the range is at least 2 miles.  Please note that road conditions (hills and curves) can affect the range.
