The best place to install them would be in the headlights somewhere toward the center of the car, especially if you don't run a front plate - because if no plate, they aim for headlights.

I seem to remember some R&T or was it C&D test that showed by just turning on your low beams you cut the range down like 40% for when the cop's laser can lock onto your car. And when they ran with high beams on the results were even better. This test was years ago though. I assume the tech has gotten a lot better now.
