So as I'm in my normal morning hustle to get to work at a decent time after dropping off the kids at daycare. I'm "moving" at a pretty good clip on a road that I can "make up" time on, and talking to the wife on the phone. I'm getting ready to go over an overpass for a railroad track, and the R3 alerts to KA 35.5.

I immediately drop anchor as I travel this route daily, and never get a KA hit in this spot. As I crest the over pass, and start to come down there he is sitting in the median waiting for his next roadside disco party. Thankfully the R3 alerted me in advance, and saved me from a nice conversation. Below is my "markings" on a map to show the off axis alert and distance. Not a moon sniff by any means, but definitely a save in my book. The wife was on the phone the whole time while this was occurring, and actually said she could see where a radar detector could be of use. So hey I might be getting one for her here in the near future.

Marked the LEO on Waze, and I was off on my way. Thank you R3!

Nice save to start the week off right. :cool:
Yeah no kidding! I've seen FHP posted on the other side of the overpass here so I know to crest when heading the opposite direction, but this morning was an eye opener. The LEO was clearly out to get some revenues, and was just sitting in the median waiting for his next victim. Thankfully that wasn't me, and being late to work this morning would have been ugly.
