On my commute today as I’m cutting through the orchards in NorCal on my way to I-5 got an off axis hit of KA-34.7 joining SR99. CHP Pickup truck passed the intersection SB and when I pulled behind her, continuous KA hits. Didn’t realize they ran radar in those.

Here's a local PD unit in an F150:

I see those on 101 at the truck inspection station daily. Sometimes they leave the KA on. I see the KA left on about once a month. If I think about it next time I’ll lock in the video.

You’ll see the ghost cars sometimes; no light bars and the stickers are the same color as the car. Technically marked, but hard to see. I couldn’t find a picture online but it’s similar to this. Look close at the doors.

Fitz, saw an Explorer on the Eastbound side of 80 as I was leaving Fairfield WB on 80. Prior to hilltop drive. White, couldn’t see any markings and no KA.

That F-250 must patrol the county roads in Glenn. Found it again on my last commute. Running 33.699 (or close).

I got a LIDAR hit from a parked CHP with a brand new F250 in SoCal near Palm Springs. It had the square LED headlights - very high up, in case you see one in your mirror.
Tracy CA has super stealth Chargers, dark dark blue, almost black.
I just hope they don't show up on Patterson Pass !!!
