Here is a video of an NYSP who was hiding under a bridge shooting FF 34.7. I would generally expect RF from a position like that so was a little surprised at how close-range the alert was. I got about 0.3 miles of range on this trap.

Definitely odd to see FF in a position like that. Short alert but still would have been enough to drop anchor. Thanks for sharing.

Pretty good spot. Without detection that would really be hard to notice. You would likely pass by without even seeing him at all.

Crafty one there, but C/O isn't going to help the situation. Nice kill time on the audio BTW.

We get the sneaking Fn VSPs and few locals liking to do them things around these parts as well. Thank for sharing.

honestly, nysp cars are pretty much deadly anywhere at night...unless your headlights catch their reflective parts, and that could be too late...

Nothing like an ALP alert waking you up, and not finding who shot you until you pass the him in the median!

For sure. Haven't been surprised at night yet but I imagine it will be a code brown moment when I do. I'm just hoping it's laser and not I/O.

In Long Island I've seen them hiding behind the green exit signs shooting laser. They reflective stripes blend in with the signs

The cars are super stealth that's for sure. At night they usually sit blacked out and you cannot see them at all until you pass them. I'm just hoping I don't get killed with I/O. I've heard too many stories. Staying below tolerance on an empty highway at night is probably a wise policy.

Same in parts of westchester...especially when the off ramp is at the bottom of a hill where most would gain speed.

I think you would have gotten better range if you weren't behind that conversion van. He probably picked up most of any reflections coming your way.
Messed up. Gotta expand to read what I said.

Is that also laser? Where have you seen it in Westchester?
