    After a couple of weeks of nothing, I'm finally getting them... Pickens County, SC. Pickens County cop. Marked black charger rolling CO 35.5 down a back road.

    Is this thread a good place to submit this kind of information?

    My lucky day...
    Oconee County police, Oconee county, SC - 35.5 CO from a marked black Tahoe.

    I may pick up one or two more small towns around upstate SC eventually, but that is most of the ones I'm likely to see on a daily basis.

    Anyone know where that survey matrix is stored and if it's still updated? Trying to see what threats I'll encounter in my next trip.

    Perhaps new kind of information - Mile Marker and highway
    As a data nerd that has a sick and strange habit of collecting data even to the point of paying for updated information on things like population and economic makeup for locations around the US, I love the idea of having a database of known speed traps down to zip code, city, county,...
    But when I'm actually moving in my car on the highway, it really doesn't do me much good.
    For example, during Thanksgiving travel, I drove 575 miles mainly to north MO and back to NW Arkansas where each time that I noticed radar, I made a mental note and jotted it down as soon as I could the mile marker and the kind of radar that I encountered * **. I never knew the zip code that I was in and rarely knew what county that I was in. Cities, who knows but I guess I could look it up what was close. But the highway and the mile marker was always what I could remember for location.
    When traveling around in town, sure, I know the city/county but on the highway, which is where I need radar the most, I'm marking where I am by mile marker.

    * Highway, all radar that I found was on Highway 71/49 in MO and came across the same radar at the same locations in both directions meaning that they haunt these locations on a regular basis. No radar detected when I was traveling on any other highway or state but since I live just 20 miles south of MO, there wasn't much time spent in my home state. All of the tiny little towns off of the highway are usually speed traps so I usually will watch my speed.
    Highway State Mile Marker Radar
    71/49 MO 35 KA
    71/49 MO 55 K - both ways this one was sneaky hiding on exit ramps
    71/49 MO 125 KA
    71/49 MO 175-180 KA Holy crap radar was all over this place and just happened to be the location that my wife wanted to stop for food.

    ** Wifey occasionally would give me the evil eye while hitting the brakes when radar was detected only because it would distract her from the movie that she was watching. She would later on comment on the speed that I was traveling - I was hoping she wasn't watching that part but in general, she is happy with my lead foot.
