    nice update, I was wondering what happened there.

    Where was this and what attorney did he use? I vaguely remember the details of the court?

    I posted the update in the original thread a while back ;) www.rdforum.org: New York State Ticket Advice.

    He got the ticket in long island (NYSP made the stop). He hired a lawyer from nassau county and paid $650. And my mistake, he knocked the points down from 10 to 3 and paid a $750 fine. It was his second ticket in 2 years.

    Ain't that the truth.

    Someone always has to be the first to see him and log him into the system.

    While most expensive lawyer does not always mean the best, you rightly have to consider a key thing...how much is it worth to hold on to the privilege to drive?

    WOW FML

    i just came from upstate ny, getting on around la grange, taking the taconic south all the way to the bronx river. anyway for the first time ever on this route i got tagged by lidar TWICE just now.

    For both hits the ALPs said “Marksman or Ultralyte.”

    Anyway, one was hiding under the overpass at Bryant Pond Rd and another was further down on the 3 lane.

    The only reason I wasn’t shocked was because of your post! Thanks!!!

    That last photo/map is where we used to do some jammer testing. lol

    Yeah, you will start to see some laser and radar there. Got a few tickets there back in the day.

    Before we even determine your penalty, lets look at what the cop can and can NOT prove. Shouldnt we start there proving the case before sentencing you to death??? Were you in fact going that speed? Was the gun calibrated properly that day and does he have a log?? Was he traned and does he have a certificate? If so, what does log say (in discovery of course). Was there proper speed limit signage and was it according to NHTSA manuals?? Before going to the penalty, how about proving the speed violation first??

    Thanks for the advice and replies guys. I’m going to see what that lawyer you guys suggested says.

    This morning right where the second picture you posted, there was one car shooting laser and two cars parked on the shoulder and one with a guy pulled over down the road. I also saw them on the sprain.

    Before it becomes three lanes they hide under that bridge and if it’s nice out they started shooting laser right after the curves.

    I been driving this route everyday same long commute for years and never seen anything like this. They going all out now.

    Be safe out there my brothers

    I live in lower Westchester and work in White Plains. I take the Sprain quite often both ways. I go to work at 1:00 am and leave work anywhere between 9:00 am and noon. In the morning on my way to work I get random Ka hits from NYSP sitting on the side of the road but that's very rare. Coming home south is a different story. The NYSP sit on the Jackson Ave overpass and shoot the laser down at the cars. I have picked it up on my SmartRadar and the Solo S3. The Smart Radar stays in one car and the S3 goes between different cars. I know they are there sometimes so I take it slow through that area.

    Also shortly after Jackson Ave there is a clearing on the right side just below Ridge Hill near the power lines. A NYSP will sit there sometimes with a c/o Ka. Watch these two areas if you travel there often.

    @CelticAce Hmm you've seen the laser off the Jackson Ave overpass? Hitting Fronts or Rears? Do they use pursuit vehicles already setup on the sprain?

    I've seen non leos shooting a TSS onto the sprain and 87 from the ridge hill area just to check functionality...:shifty:

    They hit the front of the cars and have chase cars on the entrance ramp.

    Not to throw stones but, you might want to do some updating. The S3 isn’t that sensitive and the Smart Radar is well Discontinued.
    If you’re a diehard ecort guy, you can grab a GT-360 cheap with discounts. IMHO

    I have often thought about a Redline or Max 360. I know my detectors are old but they both constantly save me from tickets in more than ample time. Plus with owning quite a few cars, the S3 is convenient. But then again, both of my detectors could still get decent money if I sold them. So who knows, maybe in the near future
