Darn it! It feels like the days of C/O are pretty much gone around here. Got 34.695 I/O around a bend, about quarter of a mile. I think he was checking the white vehicle in the far distance ahead (at the beginning of the video), as he/she entered the bend and the LEO had a visual:

R7 - FrontCam - 34.695 - I/O

I really hope the NC tactics don’t start spreading south of the border. So far my locals are making their presence known well in advance.

For sure. It's quite the learning curve to get used to reacting to I/O. In my last K band I/O encounter I literally had the reflexes of a statue. Pretty embarrassing experience...

Wonder if the prevalence of RD users are going up or are they trying to fry the bigger fish?

Nice video, thanks for sharing! You've got more action than I have in the past little while then I got all year long. Safe travels!

@nighthawk,
You are welcome. I am not sure it it's just "luck" or indeed the situation is changing. I don't really drive more or different routes generally, but it really seems like more action lately in the same area, more I/O, and more K band (triple trouble)...
You mentioned about more people using RDs - that sounds familiar. If you have by chance mentioned this before (or someone else) - I probably missed replying to that one. Sorry if I have ignored anyone's reply here.

Not sure what the reason is. Only can speculate that here, in the neck of the woods, most drivers don't know what RD is..

God knows NC and Va. has all the I/O we can stand! Please don't send us any more!

I sure will, regardless of the frequency displayed.
After you get hit about 10,000 times or so like I have it'll slow down for you and it will actually be fun! Learn to love rabbits!

That's my problem - rabbits. I see one ahead, and always catching up with them...
I must let go and just let them lead.

Very seldom do I get rabbits that drive at a higher speed than what I normally do on the highway, tends to slow me down, which isn't always a bad thing. I definitely don't bank on LEO running C/O though, because all it takes is the one time they don't!

Very true.
I hate when some one ahead is not maintaining speed, finally I pass them, and right after they get on my back, like they are mad someone else went in front of the line... I think that is the case mostly, but there are drivers that really think if they are right behind (speeding), they are "invisible" to the radar.

Very sneaky cop. Being first like the white vehicle you are just screwed if you go over PSL.
For sure.
The biggest threat is a selective I/O. Then sometimes even a rabbit is not going to save you. See how that LEO did not check us (me or the vehicle right in front). So the next in line would have not got advanced warning.

@Marty K , I use rabbits like a game of leap frog! I run to the first rabbits tail lights, carefully pass him and go on to the next one! That way I never get held up behind a slow leak! Since you have a R7 and I have a R1 they will pick up any I/O shots for miles ahead as long as you still have cars ahead of you and your careful! In NC anyway, they are pretty much shooting fish in a barrell! They are not all that selective. That's why I always preach for you guys to get the most sensitive detector that you can get so you can get the far off over the hill and around the corner off axis I/O shots!
