From the Blinder video: The average officer writes 15 tickets a day"

Nice scare tactics...I call BS on this. 15 tickets a day?? Let's hope that never becomes the average total. That's more like the 2 week total for your average patrol guy. That is a month total for a guy who actually looks for REAL criminals , instead of wasting time writing soccer moms. Even Troopers or Highway guys write way less than that.... that is 2 tickets an hour, no freakin' way. There may be a few losers running around who write 15 tickets a day...they're the same guys whose lockers are in the corner and eat by themselves. Reckless drivers, drunks, passing school buses, write them all. The problem is there are too many guys who don't know that warn and admonish IS also traffic enforcement. Nothing ticks me more than someone writing a guy/gal on the way home from work or off to little league 5 miles from their house for minor stuff. RANT OFF

But, no matter what the real average is, the laser issue is still a pain. I don't know about buying the Blinder, if they exaggerate so much in their opening line, how honest are they about their level of performance?? I might however consider adding the Escort ZR3 to my 9500i . The only thing that sux is that it can't be transferred (easily)from vehicle to vehicle. $400 for the 9500 and another 350 fro the ZR3 gets pricey to add to multiple vehicles. If anything, just the 930 will get the ZR3

Anyone have any experience with the anit-laser coating??? In theory it sounds plausible to diffuse the laser.
