Radar cheats banned.

Scottish Motor Show chiefs have banned the sale of police radar jammers - thanks to the Record.

They were on open sale at the show yesterday - just yards from a police road safety stand.

But when we informed organisers of the showcase event at Glasgow's SECC, they made London- based Sly Fox Electronics remove them.

A show spokesman said: "We were totally unaware these devices were being offered.

"We absolutely condemn people who attempt to sell equipment which encourages drivers to break the speed limits."

AA road safety expert Neil Greig slammed the pounds 280 devices.

He added: "Everyone knows that speed is the main killer on our roads today."

Sly Fox Electronics boast their device is so reliable that they will pay double any fine picked up.

It is illegal to use the dashboard device which the makers claim works by "nobbling" the reading on police radar or laser guns.

But police say the gadgets don't work.
