Couple nights ago, went out to meet with a friend. It happened on I-40 eastbound, I was about the get on the very left lane to take the 240 ramp/exit.
Two cars on both left lanes, "I'm gonna pass them because I hate left lane hoggers", pushed it a little bit, passed them then moved to the left lane.
Then JBV1/Valentine One BEEP BEEP BEEP "FRONT LASER".
CRAP!
Pass 2 cops sitting on the shoulder, blue lights on, I pull over.
Officer: "You know why I'm pulling you over?"
Me: "I think I do" gave him my license.
10 minutes later
Officer: "You've been cooperative and pulled over, you have a clean driving record so I gave you a break. I put you down at 69mph instead of 89mph."
Me: "THANK YOU!"

I don't always use Waze, or turn my iPhone's HotSpot on to get the Android/JBV1 to get CSA.
While waiting, I checked Waze and it was marked 28 minutes ago with 10 thumbs up.
This mistake cost me $203. First ticket in a decade.

Jammers and always use waze! I run it on the way to gas station 2 blocks from my house, and it has saved me in those two blocks.

Man you need to get some parking sensors if you’re going to do +30 at night like that. Seems like a reasonable cop, he could have written you for reckless at that speed and they often do.

Can't believe you weren't running the app... ALWAYS run it. Sorry to hear about it. Lawyer up, get it tossed and buy at least some TMGs if not ALPs. Does it state which gun he got you with?

It was a Tennessee State Trooper, so it's 99.9% likely a Stalker XLR

I'm surprised the Trooper wasnt pissed because you pulled over to the left. Texas DPS Troopers hate it and will cut no breaks! Cut you a massive break. Isn't +15 a super speeder in TN?

Yeah, +15 sucks in TN. I'm surprised he cut you slack too, the Troopers usually don't.

The sigh at the end said it all! Looks like it’s time to invest in some jammers
I showed the video to a buddy, he said the exact same thing.
Dang! I have never seen them sitting there on I-40! He gave you a really decent break though!
Firs time for me too, and yeah I'm 'happy' he gave me a break.

Waze is the most useful app when you actually use it :rolleyes:

I just paid it, not gonna lawyer up, it's just 9 over (on paper).
can't afford laser jammers right, but definitely gonna consider it in the future.

Asheville PD. This happened in Asheville NC.

@RaggedEdge
It wasn't a trooper, just and Asheville PD. He was on the left, I was on the left, I didn't even think about it. Pulled over as soon as I could. I'd think it's safer for him to pull over on the left lane, and not standing in traffic.

Too late now but you should never just pay it in my opinion. He cut you a break due to your clean record. If there is a next time (which i hope there isn’t) you won’t be getting any breaks.

Exactly! Next time you get pulled over you won't have a clean record and there will be NO warning and no breaks.

Glad he cut you a break! Like the others said, invest in some jammers! My TMG's saved my @ss this weekend! I figured I'd never see laser, WRONG!!! BTW, don't ever "just pay it"! I would NEVER do that! Get a lawyer and have it reduced or changed to a non moving violation!

So, here s my 2 cents.
1. You never speed at night WITHOUT JAMMERS.
2. You need to practise your braking reaction. If I was you I would drop the anchor, you were going 92-94mph when you got inital alert but he got you at 86. Imagine if you really hit the brakes instead of coasting down to PSL.
3. You dont speed without JAMMERS.
4. With jammers you ll have cruise control at 100mph easily with no sweat.
5. With ALP, this would be easy walk through the park. Get hit, hear the alert, drop the anchor, JTK in 3 seconds, move on, repeat.

cheers.


G.E.T A.L.P!!!
