Got "hit" by an MSP for the first time since installing the ALP a few months ago. Cracks me up that he left his Ka on (not that it gave me much warning). Uniden R7 didn't alert to the laser (no big surprise and not concerned). Not sure if he was tagged on Waze as my wife and I were both on the phone as you can hear. I clearly overshot the brakes as you can see. 70mph psl.

Anyway, alway exciting to hear that chick in the speaker under my seat come alive!

Very Nice Jtk. Always fun to encounter a little laser and not worry about it. It's become my favorite encounter variety

Thanks! Seems I focus 100% on killing it. Even over slowing down. I’m going to forget to slow down some day and just kill it and get nailed anyway. But at least I’ll hear the ALP angel talk to me. lol!

It’s such a funny feeling. Its like yay, oh crap, and yay again in a couple seconds! Makes a Ka save seem kinda boring now.

100%! Being I had just a second or two of Ka going off on this one it wasn’t as surprising, but still exciting!

Yep I have nearly killed too quick before hitting the breaks, and yep it's like "yes I'm getting lasered!" , "oh crap, I'm getting lasered, I should slow down!" "Sweet! I it worked, I got lasered and didn't get a ticket!"

Hopefully I’d have been on the brakes at the first KA blip but this really makes me think I need ALPs sooner than later. Because I’d have been toast if his radar was off.

@swarfworks What area was this? The video was a little too short for me to read the sign on the bridge at the end.
