[Connecticut used to have an anti-radar-detector law. However, in 1998, the law was repealed, and all the signs along the roadway warning of thier illegality were taken down. Here is the new statute which actually specifically and officially denounces the illegality of radar-detectors in Connecticut...believe it or not. Usually, when a law is recinded, it just disappears. I thought this was interesting, though; so I put it up, here. -Todd]
