    Has this happened before? I thought those radar guns were pretty old...I mean like the actual guns the pigs have are like 30 or so years old...

    Well I hang out a www.radardetector.net it's a radar forum. They maybe using a Ku radar gun. I highly doubt it what im thinking is maybe pop radar. Thats hard to detect also could be laser. You can hit a car with laser and a detector wouldnt go off it happens.

    Maybe they are watching for people who spike their brakes? Then pull them over? Scaring people to slow down?

    Old detectors dont detect laser. You be surprised how many people have old detectors and still using them.

    Um if it WAS a laser than your detector would ONLY go off if they pulled the trigger on your car.

    Sounds like paranoia from a lead foot to me.

    Laser i only going to make your Radar Detector go BOOP BOOP when its aimed and fired at your car.

    I find it hilarious they even make laser detectors as an option because its basically to let you know you are "****ed" and to pull over.

    Which is a good place to set up a trap to catch speeders.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not a crazy driver, I just don't wanna pay $180 dollar for driving 10-15 above the speed limit on an empty road.
    Well I dont like speed limits either but I obey them when im in town. Speeding belongs out of the highway. I speed when I get on highways so im guilty.

    But if you speed all the time be prepared to get speeding tickets. I dont like seeing people ***** about getting tickets intown for speeding when they know the law.

    You dont know much do you. Police upgrade their equipment all the time. They have to enforce laws and they stay on top of technology pretty well.

    Yes, and they usually **** people up in that area, but they didn't that day. Remember, I crossed them twice. And usually my rd detects them from a looong distance. That's why it is strange.

    Like I said, this was not downtown, 0% chance of running over pedestrians and stuff, speed limit is 45 which is so ridiculously low for this area, that’s why everybody speeds there.

    And that is why they were sitting there.

    It is a big mistake to assume that the cops enforce the law because of the danger present. They enforce the law because the speed limit is being ignored, and because they need to generate revenue for the state, and because it is thier job.

    You think that there is no point in sitting there because there is no danger to pedestrians. But, they can sit there, and stop EVERYONE because EVERYONE is going faster then the posted speed limit, and give out tens, if not hundreds, of tickets in one sitting.

    I know that, I am totally aware that the police is not there to help us but to make $$$ (My honest opinion).
    But they were not effin people over. There was only one police car on the median, the other ~10 pigs on the side of the street with their speed guns were by foot, so they could not even have people pulled over, and they didn't that day.

    Perhaps they were having donuts and coffee, having a meeting, or just ******* with people, or teaching them, Hey, we could be right here giving you tickets, and you wouldn't know until it was too late. Perhaps they were testing a new radar gun, with out issuing tickets. It is possible.
