I got pinched on 34 in dorkville doing 57in a 45 mph zone. Cop was cool and let me off about a month ago after that I’m cruising at 47 mph everydayAlso, on the way to work this AM, I pull onto 34 here in Yorkville and immediately, my radar starts going off like crazy. I get up to 45 (speed limit) and turn on my cruise control. I'm in the right lane and maybe a mile down the road I see the cop in the median. Truck in the left lane a few car lengths behind me must also have radar and is going 45. There's a small gap between us that remains constant. I get the instant on radar notification, meaning the cop targeted me once directly and shot his radar to get a reading (I assume)
As we get closer to the cop, a red Accord Sport 2.0T is coming up behind me at 55+ MPH I have to imagine. He clearly does not see the cop or have radar. He cuts between me and the truck that's 4-5 car lengths behind me. This all happens as we're 200 yards from the cop and he started to accelerate past me when he sees the cop and slams on the brakes.
Needless to say, cop pulls out, truck gets behind me and he flys past us to catch up to the red Accord and lights him up. Next light me and trucker are next to each other and he's having a good laugh about it.
This is why I have a radar detector and always will.
