Was doing +15 PSL nearing the border of two municipalities. Got a decently strong and sudden K band hit and immediately went to about +5 PSL (one of these municipalities is known for using K band heavily). Right after slowing I observed a hidden Tahoe cruiser shooting lidar on the side of the road. LEO in the Tahoe pulled out and went after the car next to me ( they must've been +15 PSL) who didn't slow in time. I never got hit with the lidar because I slowed and was saved by the other city's Explorer with moving K band entering the highway near where the Tahoe was sitting!

It's crazy to think that I could have very well gotten a nice lidar ticket if it weren't for the other municipality's cruiser entering the highway at the same time that the Tahoe was there!

Similar scenario happened with me. Came off a exit ramp rolling, and I got a Ka band signal, anchors away and a few seconds later I got hit with lidar. Meant to be sometimes!

Sometimes I will pick up a strong radar signal and I slow down, only to come around the corner into a major LiDAR speed trap.
But with 2,3,or 4 LEO cars parked there, one forgets and has C/O left on in his car, while a LEO stands outside with a LiDAR tripod calling out cars to pull over.
Makes me laugh and be relieved at the same time for the newb mistakes.

Nice !!!


This happened to me about 12 years coming back from Saskatchewan on hwy 16 on a Sunday night about 10pm. I was 20 km inside Alberta when my V1 was saying ka. I was doing 50 over psl. So I dropped the anchor. All of sudden the V1 alerts to laser. See the ghost grey or brown crown Vic sitting on range road shooting laser. V1 still alerting to ka. Then a rcmp cruiser passes and arrows changes


So lucky there
