    Seems that we have a lot of users here around the NYC area as well as long island who drive very frequently. Figured we would start an official thread of where and when we spot NYPD or NYSP running radar and/or lidar instead of keep creating new ones. Upstate drivers welcome to post their encounters in their area as well. Just trying to keep Northeast encounters organized. Plus it would give us a feel to what to look for when driving around that area. I'll start:

    This past Saturday I came across a NYPD Ford Taurus on Van Wyck Southbound by flushing meadows park around 4 p.m. He was perpendicular on the right shoulder shooting lidar out his window but his lazy behind left his radar on (34.7XX) so I detected him a half mile back. He wasn't reported on waze.

    I would suggest a private (by URL) collaborative Google mapwhere users can mark the locations!

    Done. Whoever is interested in marking locations of leo encounters anywhere in the NY state, shoot me a message with your email and I will add you to collaborate on the map! Any questions on how to add a marker let me know. We will only do recent encounters starting from last weekend and on-wards. You can follow my marker as an example.

    You can even add pictures and or videos to the marker. Great idea @tphank1 !

    Tag any NY users I forgot!

    Is there a way to download our speed traps and marked locations from Live?

    If we could export these locations and merge with a number of other users' data, that might help a lot. I can think of certain roads however where every turnaround would be marked - like 87 from Albany to Glens Falls.

    Yeah it's harder to do for the thruways. Around the city here it's easy to mark because there's only so many places you can really setup camp.

    For those that travel the thruway frequently, we know the turnarounds, when I travel other highways, I don't know where they are, and that could be helpful when travelling elsewhere... But 87 has some spots that are classic and have not changed for YEARS

    If we could integrate it with waze, this would be killer.

    Encountered black unmarked NYPD ford taurus shooting F/F 34.667 from an entrance ramp on I-87 South exit/entrance #8 yesterday. Heads up for those who said they never encountered this. I can post the video later if anyone requests to see it.

    Is this map live yet? I don't see a link, but I'm not sure if it would be posted here or through a pm. I'm in Brooklyn and always see cops on the Belt parkway just after the Verrazano Bridge heading towards Manhattan. Not sure why people speed there...they are almost always around there.

    Marked NYPD charger without top light shooting laser on I-87 Southbound between exits 7 & 8 in Bronx. Right after the exit for I-95. Car parked parallel to road. He had the driver side door open and was standing and shooting.

    This is actually one of the most reliable and consistent places to test your own radar/laser setup. Pretty much any day of the week I can just take a drive on the belt up and get tagged by laser. Sometimes I even do it when I'm bored.

    Didn't have a chance to zoom, but this is a cropped photo. One LEO behind and in front of a car. The Police truck was unrelated but, it was a first time seeing it. IMG_3662.jpeg

    This shouldn't be a way to 'test' your setup with a LEO. Find a tester in the area to do so. If you ran through there without testing your setup and something is wrong you will find out the hard way.

    I-87 N, the underpass right after exit 2. NYPD Ford Fusion running Ka 34.660. I didn't even know they used fusions for speed enforcement until yesterday...

    Example of fusion:
