    Hi all,

    I ll be taking a trip this weekend on Saturday to Vancouver with a return date on Thursday.
    I would like any useful info. Basically I pretty much know everything whats gonna be thrown towards me from Edmonton to BC border (34.7,35.5, UL, PL3/4, Stalker, Laserally, Dragoneye around Banff, K 24.150, speed patrolled by aircraft).

    What are your encounters after BC border to Vancouver?

    I am aware of heavy enforcement area around Golden, Revelstoke, Merritt, Hope.

    MAIN QUESTION: Does BC RCMP use VASCAR along Highway 1?

    I've done this more times than I can count. No Vascar.
    34.7 mainly. Then K band and I've seen 35.5 once or twice. No 33.8. I've driven by 3 laser speed traps in the Okanagan area, and every single time, the gun is on a tripod, but they're just standing around not even using it, so I don't know what it was lol. (One time in west kelowna in a friends car with no CM, the cop came out of the bush and tagged him at probably 85-90 in a 60 with an UL, signaled to slow down then walked back in the bush)

    Hwy 1 sucks getting stuck behind trucks so prepare to have it floored at every passing lane. After Vernon its smooth sailing. Coquihala is like 160 flow of traffic all the way to Hope. Lots of radar in those towns you pointed out (coming down hill into Golden for sure) with laser traps outside Hope.

    I'd recommend turning on waze once you hit Hope. Most LEO's are reported on hwy 1. Once you enter Vancouver you can pretty much expect only laser. Have a safe trip!

    Have a great safe and no ticket trip. Pretty much what was said about BC is what I have found. At times I have seen RCMP on overpasses shooting front laser around Hope. If you could post what you encountered after your trip that would be great, thanks.

    1st LEG (Edmonton - Kelowna): DONE. LAME. No encounters. I was pushing constantly 155-170kmh in Alberta in moderate traffic, passing on the right those left lane hogs, flashing my lights for LLHs to move over but NOTHING. BC was also LAME, 1 34.7 Ka detection of a cop pulling out of a Dunkin Doughnut parking lot. Usually kept it between 30-40kmh over PSL so I dont get towed due to 40 over BC law. I was constantly in a Sport Mode and constantly switching gears with my F1 tiptronic system. My average consumption is 7.5L. Insane. Great engine, great gearbox. 3.6L VVT 2016 Pentastar engine with 9 speed gear transmission.

    Lets see what Kelowna to Vancouver can bring it now.

    Got hit with Stalker XLR doing 110 in 80 zone in Delta, JTk'd in 3 second, then got hit with Dragoneye 1 second later, then again Stalker second later, then again Dragoneye, then finally Stalker. 2 Delta RCMP officers running single speed trap with XLR & Dragoneye Compact.
    Video is awesome with multiple ALP alerts on Stalker n Dragoneye.

    No pull over, no second looks.
    I guess I was lucky since Dragoneye hit came after I JTk'd but it seems in video ALP crushed the trap like a champ :)

    Will upload soon.

    CACTG comrades already saw footage.

    That's a deadly section you hit. Delta isn't messing around. Nice work, looking forward to seeing that video!

    Sounds like your ALPs performed flawlessly, not to mention your reaction time. Well done.
