I will be making this drive often and would appreciate any intel from other drivers. I will share my experiences in this thread as I build awareness of LE presence along this route.

Today I had two alerts on the drive with one genuine save.

1 Ka between Canmore and Banff. Uniden R7 saw it such a long way off it was not an issue. rcmp sedan.

1 Ka just west of Golden. This one came up fast as I was at speed. Two very new looking trucks one behind the other. On the brakes hard as soon as the R7 alerted, cruised right by them. I have seen many rcmp within 15k of golden but not many further out than that...

my R7 is remembering the placement of the stationary K band speed signs.

two notable observances - highway Patrol for commercial trucks don’t appear to have radar. Two I have passed and no signal. They let me cruise by at 10 over. Also the R7 muted k band speed sign alerts after I passed them. Nice touch by Uniden.

I've made the drive on several occasions.

I've seen mostly Ka. Some K. And a good bit of laser.

They love to sit on the animals crossings and overpasses bear Banff and Canmore area.

CVSE can and will pull you over. I've seen K band and 34.7 Ka.

Seen a few near Revelstoke running K band. Couple at golden.

Overpasses in Banff have almost caught me a few times. On my last trip I didn’t even see the guy until I was under the bridge (tree overhang). I could see the colour of his eyes. No idea why he didn’t signal for the chase car on the ramp to chase me down. I was going a good 20-25 over. Maybe he has someone else in mind?

Ive noted a lot of K west of Banff. Golden, Revelstoke areas, and Kelowna LOVES K.

Thx for sharing - years ago I remember seeing LE SUVs parked behind the animal bridges west of Banff before Louise.They would tuck themselves in close to the land bridge and shoot at you after you’ve passed.
