LOL... I know. The detector, detector, detector, undetector detector. Ha

For the Radar to go off the cop does not have to be pointing directly at you. Since Radar is on a much broader frequency it's more likely that your detector will pick up reflections from other cars, signs, etc.

For Laser, the cop pretty much has to be aiming right for you - chances are you're toast anyway if you get hit with laser... BUT there are those helpful laws of physics that could allow a stray laser aimed at someone else to come through the windshield or reflect off something ahead at just the right angle to warn you.

Laser difusers are not illegal, though. I believe it has something to do with the fact that the government cannot govern light.
