Driving to Roosevelt from Heber this morning. Saw two full-size gray Duchesne S.O. ghost pickup trucks parallel parked in the Duchesne high school parking lot... both facing out, not drivers window to window like they do to talk to each other.... thought, hmmm that’s unusual.

Their windows were facing traffic coming towards me. When I got past them one of the officers was using what looked like a PL3!!

In 5 years I’ve never seen Lidar used anywhere in the area. This was a bit disheartening to see today. Hopefully not a sign of things to come.

@RRJ and I have seen it in use quite a lot lately especially in Cache County, Box Elder County, and Weber County. In addition, I've seen a few spots in Utah County that they're using it at daily.

I think I'm more disheartened to hear about more ghost marked vehicles. The police who don't want to be seen.

It seems like they might be ramping up their Lidar use in Utah overall unfortunately. I got blasted by a motorcycle UHP on Bangerter from the Redwood Road onramp about a two months ago (and pulled over). I've also noticed it a few times in the Lehi construction zone. A UHP was standing outside of his cruiser around a curve.

I got hit with TruSpeed S in Lehi in a 35mph zone last Friday. I also saw Bluffdale PD using LIDAR later that same day off of Redwood Road. I didn’t see what gun Bluffdale PD had.

Did you see the shooter? I was talking to one of the sales guys at Sound Warehouse in Orem about six months back. He told me he got hit and stopped by an Orem PD motorcycle unit (Harley) who was on State Street using LIDAR. He didn't know what gun it was as he only uses the RADAR detector portion of his 9500ci and hasn't installed the Laser ShifterPro sensors (Escort's rebranded Laser Interceptor 8.x heads).

It was a patrol car. He did nail someone in the other lane. I still need to get my ALPs tested, but I thinked they saved me for this run in haha.
