Another week, another trap. Once again, the Sheriff is patiently waiting to catch someone in the school zone. I'd have to say, the 360c did well here. About on par with my EX, but i feel ike the ramp up was a little worse this time around. Frequency is 34.718, plenty of time to slow down too and check my speed.

Sheesh, excellent hiding spot on his part! I'd say the 360c did a good job here. The full tilt alert was kind of surprising, but with how straight on it is, I can see why it did that.

If there is anyplace I would condone a speed trap it would be in a speed zone. If one cannot obey the PSL there they should get a ticket.

Absolutely - NO one should speed a school zone.

I agree with the above posts, assuming the zone is active. Some school zones are enforced during times when the kids aren’t in school, and that is just revenue generating BS.
well around here, they are only enforced if children are present, otherwise it's 35. But I see what you mean.

Carmel, Indiana had school zone speed limits in effect 24/7! They finally cut that back after so many motorists contested their tickets that the Kangaroo court had a major backlog and they actually had to work lolol.

I spotted him with no trouble because I'm always looking for eye saves due to all of the point blank I/O shots I get! There is no C/O so you either get a far off sniff, an eye save, or you get popped! Great video!

Isn't it hard to actually catch someone from where the cop is standing and given a wide road with many cars like that? I mean how do you know who was speeding? Or you just need a lot of radar experience and with that you'll see it with your eyes: who the radar is actually clocking I mean.
Thanks!

Around here, the school zone signs also have the hours they are applicable posted.
