    I really don't know my mobile speed detection systems. When in Highway or Advanced (40%), my R3 picked this up with a BIT of warning - in the very low end of K-band range (24.065 if I remember correctly). Forgot to pull cam footage...

    Not Redflex, looks a mobile surveillance trailer. Not really sure what they're used for, but I do not think they're used for speed enforcement.

    Whatever it is, it's emitting K-band...

    It looks like a mobile crowd surveillance trailer. It shouldn't have been emitting K band while broken down to travel unless they forgot to turn it off. Some models use K band for motion detection and tracking.

    This was its location - Sycamore & Tanglewood:
    Google Maps

    It was there for a couple of weeks and emitted K every time I passed. I figured it was speed enforcement because LEO's do prowl this particular road - its PSL is 25 mph and "should" be 35-40 mph...
