About a mile in off the New York / Vermont border I passed a LEO on the other side of the road. It was marked on Waze for my side. Didn’t pickup anything until I passed him. About 10 seconds later RCM picked up a 9 on K band from the rear.

Can post video if anyone is interested but wasn’t targeting me.

Black car. Didn’t see. I’m assuming state.

Here it is! Sorry hard to see LEO. I did some rudimentary edits on my phone. Where I pause you can see black car opposite side.

Looks like he was forward facing I/Oing oncoming traffic, which is sort of weird if you are targeting cars leaving your state. They usually target people coming into a new state.

I've seen this happen on a municipal level but not state. They can always say they clocked you before you left the jurisdiction and who can contest where a radar wave hit you?

Anything to squeeze you for revenue even up until the last few feet of the state line.

Definitely agree that it is odd to target people just leaving the state. K band is no fun let alone I/O.

The vehicle was a coincidence; the K hit was from a drone on the sign board. They are highly directional.

FWIW, Williston PD installed ancient K band units in their two newest cruisers (F150 and Charger) as they turned over old units. I was somewhat surprised at that, and figured this thread may be going in that direction. They had been running strictly Ka for about two years as the K units sat in the town garage.

The PSL drops from 65 to 55 about a mile before this spot (VT/NYS border). The road also drops from 4 lanes to two, so it's common practice to try and pass any slowpokes before getting stuck on a two lane hwy with very limited passing areas for the next 30 miles. Traffic enforcement at the border is more about a pretext to do drug searches than anything else.
