    Today going 100+ through state lines, just after crossing into West Virginia from Ohio bridge, there sits a Ohio state trooper. Not sure what he was doing there
    as I really believe it was out of state lines, I almost had a heart attack because the limit dropped to 55 just as I saw him. R3 did nothing, and neither did he.

    Happens all the time. Probably on his phone or LEO issued laptop. If he's not running radar, no RD is going to make a peep. Did you check your shorts though??

    Around here they use nothing but highly selective IO so I was waiting for the alarm bells.

    I regularly pass out of jurisdiction on police on the interstate
    They are usually headed to court in another county

    This one time i kept getting 35.5 hits for like 8 miles

    Finally figured one was gaining on me in traffic
    When he finally got up next to me it was a city moto cop from 3 towns away

    I eased right into his beam radar detector full tilt
    And left him
    Its the weirdest feeling

    When we travel up to Ohio on I-77 to visit my in-laws, it's always funny to see how much everyone slows down as they cross the bridge leaving WV and going into Ohio. There's probably a good reason that Fuzzbuster, Cincinnati Microwave, Escort, Valentine, etc., started in that state.

    Probably working on content for his youTube channel. How they're allowed to do that boggles my mind.

    Remember in Cannonball Run 1 when Brock Yates was addressing the drivers and said that there isn't a death penalty in any of the fifty states for speeding, except for maybe Ohio?
