Nebraska Laser Jammer Laws

Some sources report that laser jammers are illegal in Nebraska.
However, while we located a Nebraska law prohibiting radar jamming, this law does not mention laser specifically, nor does it refer to all speed measurement devices in a general sense (like some laws in other states do). So, one might conclude that this law is restricted to radar only, and that laser jammers are not covered and are therefore legal. You be the judge.
