I probably should have put my Webster PD siting here

Webster PD has been shooting a Kustom Prolite pretty consistent on the weekends. I45 south of baybrook mall. North and southbound sides. Expedition, Charger, on the shoulder like always

Let's get this thread going again.

I saw a Fulshear PD Officer running traffic out of jurisdiction on FM1493 close to Cinco Ranch Boulevard. FPD is extremely aggressive towards traffic.

Did you know I got flashed by a Sugar Land Stealth Charger way out on the East Beltway once?? The guy was like 30 miles out of jurisdiction and he drops in behind me, hits his lights then after I slow down he turns them off and drops back in the right lane. I was maybe 15 over PSL... I don't take any of them for granted anymore except the HISD cops.

Last month on the 20th or 21st I was coming back from a beer bottle share at a friends house in Richmond. Was doing +20psl so you can imagine I was shitting myself.

I get a lot of 33.7 and 33.8 falses in town. I get a one or two bar alert for a few seconds and then it's gone. I have not had a visual confirmation of a Leo shooting 33.8 in the Houston area. Most of what I see is 34.7, 35.5 and K band on toll roads. Very seldom do I get lidar targeting. I have seen recently Leo's standing outside by their door with some object in hand looking at oncoming traffic. My radar detector does not go off and the object they hold they keep at waist level. Any ideas?

Depends on what you refer to as the "Houston area." I encounter Ka 33.8 as my primary segment in Katy/Fort Bend. Some will say that's not Houston area but it's very close.

All of Rosenberg PD is 33.8.

I have driven there also but have yet to visually confirm a 33.8 alert. I am in the service industry so I travel all across town. I was In Rosenberg this Sunday but no visual alert just a couple of seconds of a weak 1-2 bar alert. I was in the Katy area today but no visual confirmation of 33.8 still. It goes both for my redline or max. I do however get a lot of 33.6 and 33.7 falses.

I have visual confirmation of 34.7, 35.5 and K alerts in the greater Houston area. I have some of each on video but still have not confirmed a 33.8 alert.

I will look out for Rosenberg pd next time I am in the area since you mention they are all 33.8. I just don't see many when I am in the area. Most of my alerts are on 59 and 36 and some in sugar land near hwy 6.

Most of the targeting I see is by constables, sheriffs or state troopers on the toll roads. I see HPD often on the loop by reliant or on gulf freeway feeder or near hobby.

Yesterday I was driving towards Waller Texas and there was tons of 35.5 most I have ever seen in one trip. It seems like as of recent all cops are becoming stricter on speeding. I've been seeing cops all over Sugar Land and Pearland

it is probably high way patrols time of month for quotas. HPD doesn't have quotas they have incentives with over time pay for showing for court.

I drive down those roads daily so I'll keep an eye out to see if I can identify it.

Yeah Rosenberg actually has a contract with MPH industries and I believe the relationship is in very good standing. I haven't seen anyone running POP, the Rosenberg traffic officers and highway interdiction guys (stealth cars) run lidar if the want to be sneaky.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office is putting 33.8 guns in all new cars. Most of the older Crown Vics and moto units run 33.8 too. The Fort Bend County Constable's Office is switching from 33.8 and K band to 34.7.

Another thing I just remembered is I have never encountered a legitimate alert from an MPH Industries gun below 33.788 and never above 33.80X. The 33.788 alert grew to 33.79X as I got closer to the source. Cobras are in the 33.760 range in my experiences.
