So , the state troopers have a new tactic here in ohio. As one trooper is driving the opposite side of the highway running low power instant on k, another , hanging back hiding,behind a semi truck or traffic in your direction gets behind you and pulls you over from his radio call. So like 4 troopers one direction 4 the other. They are doing this to avoid waze and rear radar detection!!! A whole lot of people were pulled nailed this cold ugly morning going to work. Dirty bastards. My R3 had only 2 to 3 bars k band the whole event.

Not really much different than facing any other rolling I/O though right? Unless it's a divided highway with, what I've recently learned is called a "Jersey Barrier", the only difference would be that they don't have to turn around after they peg you and catch back up. IOW, your radar detector will still save you just as well (or poorly) as it would from any other rolling I/O. Unless I'm missing something?

Yea. Your missing the fact, most drivers gonna ignore a state trooper driving on the other side of a divided highway and can't get over to you. And you can't see the one behind you lurking a 1/4 mile away with no radar signal. In other words, your guard is all the way off even if alerted to the officer driving on the other side of a high wall divided highway.

You didn't mention that it was a divided highway and you didn't mention that there was a high wall, both of which I allowed for with a caveat in my post.

Either way, I'm not sure why you wouldn't be slowing down when your detector goes off anyway. You don't know he's on the other side of the highway until you see him.

Someone needs to challenge this in your states. If the trooper that is writing the ticket is the one showing up in court instead of the gun operator, then there are legal precidents of successful challenges in other states to draw from.

I got off with hearsay in a big court . But small towns and kangaroo courts, they don't care.

Seems like such a tactic would be a logistical nightmare. Maybe the video of what you saw, or scanner chatter from the LEOs, would be more convincing? With I/O low power K they really don't need to mess with complicated tactics like what you're describing.

No offense, but that's kind of a rookie mistake to let your guard down despite getting a legit I/O K alert.

I agree. I'm shocked how thirsty they are for blood man in ohio. Its insane.

This. Of course most probably don’t fight a ticket but they certainly could in this instance. And yeah you should always slow when you’re getting a real alert even if it’s divided.

On a recent cross country drive through States I would often see a string of Waze alerts ahead. I just slowed until well past the last alert since it was likely one or more LEO's active in the general area. The scenario described by OP would still be avoided in an active Waze zone.

Waze needs to add an option to report "traffic enforcement in this area".

Isn't this scenario extremely common with laser? Officer sits up on an overpass shooting cars with laser until he gets a hit then radioing a chase car below. Now I've never been stopped like that, so I dont know who's showing up in court. In my town they write so many tickets the police never show up to court. In fact if you want the officer to show, you have to reschedule the court date in person. Point is, that seems so similar it should be an issue too.
