Yes but unfortunately no one is going to be able to change the shape of their vehicle like a B-2, or change what their vehicle is made out of. Ultimately what is needed is a clear wax-type of coating that people can use on their cars, but that's probably not coming around for a while. Modifying the cars reflectivity is probably the most realistic approach right now.

Yes but your jammer doesn't really need
to have the incoming view at all times. It’s like the wild, wild west, and your jammer just needs to be the first one to "draw". That is what buys you time to slow down, and once a person slows down to the posted speed limit it doesn't matter what the LEO does or is doing. The key in winning this LEO VS. jammer showdown is that your car needs to be quick
in responding to the LIDAR signal. Whatever signal reaches (back to) the LEO's LIDAR gun first (his gun or your jammers signal) is what is going to determine who 'wins'. Passive measures dramatically help your jammer to win.
I believe that a persons vehicle needs a good foundation
to build upon in this countermeasures war between 'them and us'. Instead of buying a jammer and then adding passive measures like a cherry on top of ice cream, I think it makes much more sense to first
add something like Veil and a plate cover to your car, and then
start adding jammers(s).
