Some places they are technically legal.

Some places they have been outlawed. But this is a problem. In Canada it is legal to receive any radio transmission as long as you do not communicate the information gained to anyone. "Radar" detectors are simply a radio receiver. Laser detectors may be enforceable as illegal.

But I have seen cops only write tickets to radar detector users.
