A friend who doesn't have any countermeasures sent me this earlier today. Two cars on the side of the road with the lift gate tagging cars with laser. There was a marked chase car sitting at the top of an entrance ramp. This was near Croton Falls in Westchester. I've never seen this personally, so thought it was an interesting tactic.

Interesting. Thanks for posting.

I travel I684 often. Generally a 'drag strip' since they repaired the horrible road surface.

Looks like the "construction guy" if facing off the road. Too bad this could not be confirmed with CM's.
May be totally unrelated to the cop on the on-ramp.

If thats an actual speed trap its real nasty! Orange roof light on top of the car and all! Wonder if it was more of a construction detail doing something and a cop by chance sat up the road from them a bit, or he had roadside duty and was waiting for the rest of the crew to set up...Seems like a lot of effort...

In the 70s, Alabama Troopers would park on the shoulder/emergency lane in their 4-door Ford sedans. They would sit there with the trunks open, so you couldn't tell it was a trooper from any real distance. With the trunk lid up, you couldn't see the "bubble" they used back then. Nor could you see the trooper logo on the vertical flap of the trunk.

Doesn't look like a roadside emergency to me. "I'm here for safety reasons "
