Unless the trooper waits until the prey gets some distance away from the overpass to clock them, there is going to be some severe cosine error! Do they use (ground based) VASCAR in NC?

Somebody should mount a sign on the other side of bridge saying danger cop hidden slow down now!
Did you ever hear the old story about the two little boys who wanted to make some extra cash?

They found an officer running a hidden radar trap in their neighborhood. One walked a ways up the street and held up a sign warning motorists of the upcoming trap. The other walked down the street and held out a bowl and a sign reading "TIPS."

I'm telling you guys...I just don't see anything even close to that crazy in my neck of the woods. They just don't have to try that hard to meet their quotas I guess.

That seems like a ton of work to get a speeder. We have a couple of small towns where they like to hide, but most of the State Troopers only hide in medians at the bottom of hills or on curves..nothing near that crazy.
Similar to what I see in North Dakota but I do stay off interstate.

NC for sure. Probably highway 321 towards Charlotte. Many cops there are complete clowns. Small-village-mentality.

Well that's probably one of the most stupidest things I've ever seen. Risking a massive car pileup, hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages and the lives of many people just to give someone a damn ticket. Were the hell is the logic and justification for that.
🤬🤬🤬

That’s definitely NCHP. That place looks familiar, but I don’t remember anywhere with wear marks like that. I bet that’s one of the old bridges that got replaced along the 74 route.

The same emergency lane often littered with debris because much of NC is lazy about cleanup? :rolleyes: WOW!

Fortunately, that guy resigned. NCHP does have the mentality that they can do anything.

I was coming back from Raleigh one time when I was in school and this trooper had tried to do a quick turnaround and hit the bridge. It didn‘t hurt him.:rofl:

When I was just out of High School, (back in the 80's in Denver) I made a fast u-turn at a light and an officer did the same and hit the curb on his u-turn. He stopped me and I don't remember the conversation other than I said, "Well, I didn't hit the curb!"
At that moment, things could have gone badly in hindsight, but he walked away... ;) I'd never be that much of an idiot today.

The guys near Raleigh were crazy. This was back when we were still a little rebellious over the seatbelt law. This guy comes across the grass that’s probably 40 ft wide to pull me over for no seatbelt. While we are sitting there he all the sudden grabs his binoculars to look at someone. The only way he could have seen me was using binoculars while driving. Now, that’s safe. :facepalm:

Long ago when I was in my late teens we would put boards with spikes in the sneaky places were cops would hide. It worked is stopping them from breaking up our late night drag racing.
