Just returned from a trip from NYC to Portland, Maine. I never did the drive up to Maine before but man, I thought NY was bad, you guys got it bad in New Hampshire. I'm briefly in NH on the trip maybe 30 mins to go and to come back and when I was heading on I-95N, three state troopers all on the I-95 Southbound running (1) 34.7 and (2) 35.5 all with customers. Then on my return trip on the I-95 S, I came across three more again. The first one was heading Northbound while I was heading Southbound. The southbound is three lanes across as well as northbound and there wasn't traffic but a good handful of cars scattered and the trooper selective I/O me with 35.5. That pissed me off cause I had a rabbit within close distance and he definitely did not I/O my rabbit. We happened to slow down at the time before the I/O so thankfully I was only doing about 10 over. Then later down, I come across two more troopers sitting next to each other facing opposite directions on a U-turn shooting lidar a few miles before the border of Mass. and NH. On top of that, NH has those ghost looking troopers cars. It was insane.

Maine I didn't really encounter any enforcement. Maybe one, but he was marked on waze and with a customer. Connecticut and Massachusetts I came across lidar only. In both states they were on declined grassy hills on the side of the road shooting lidar. And that was about it for my trip. Just thought I'd share my experience with you Northeastern fellas!

Thanks for the info dude. Glad you didn't get stopped with them using I/O!

Yeah, New Hampshire is pretty tough sometimes. They prowl the larger highways for revenue pretty constantly, even when it gets cold out.

Out of curiousity, What guns did you see in MA? I'm guessing Truspeed in CT

I have no ideas about the guns. I don't have jammers. I only saw them windows down shooting. Sorry!

Yeah, that little stretch of 95 through NH is pretty heavily enforced with I/O and laser. They also like to come up behind you at night and I/O you from the rear. Luckily NHSP in the rest of the state usually runs C/O, as I/O would be deadly up in the mountains. Glad you made it through unscathed!

Some of those stretches of interstate are VERY busy roadways. I almost always see LEO when passing thru that state. However, with the high traffic flow, there always seems to be people utilizing VVaze.

I know right! I wanted to get ALPS but I currently rent in Bronx and parked on the road. The amount of times people damage my bumper is ridiculous. Right now it's even cracked and I refuse to fix it cause it'll just happen again. So I figured I'd hold out until I get a driveway instead of having people damage my ALPS over and over again.

I know man I know. I live in Queens. I'd still at least get TMGs if you travel on the highways a lot. Even local precinct LEOs use lidar all over the city. Get a bumper protector or mount the heads flush with the bumper if needed

I miss Queens. Use to live there until I got married last year. But a van backed up and damage my grill already since my altima is low relative to vans and I had that replaced. Bumper protectors won't help. I need a brick wall!
