Radar detector laws EXPLAINED

  • We do NOT provide legal advice or advice on avoiding speeding fines.

Western Australia, WA - radar detector laws

Currently there is no legislation relating to radar detector use, sale or ownership. Therefore radar detectors are only legal to SELL, OWN and USE in Western Australia. Laser Jammers should be considered illegal to use, however, there is no specific law against ownership and usage would be possibly considered hindering police. This includes parking sensors that are also laser jammers.
