Stealthed24789 is on a distinguished road

Alrighty, I'll try to make it as detailed as possible, not sure it'll be up to par your kind of detail TSi haha. Well was headed home from work and have my trusty Passport 9500ix mounted high on my windshield to the left of my rearview mirror. I was speeding really bad on the freeway going about 90 then dropped down when I got off to like 55-60. Was on a 4 lane road which has a physical barrier separating it right down the middle almost the whole way so I speed pretty much the whole way because there's nowhere for a cop to sit and I'm always looking in my mirrors, plus I got the 9500ix and some Veil But anyway as I was getting toward the end of the road which curves slightly, it splits 2 ways, you can either go onto the bridge or under it. On the left side there's the opening. On the left side is where traffic traveling south come from under the bridge, and cop was driving then he slowed down and got my speed somehow. I slammed on my breaks but it was already too late. Soon as I saw him I knew I was getting pulled over. The 9500ix didn't beep once. Although it does have a K-band signal blocked in that area, but that signal doesn't show up until I'm well off the bridge. On the ticket, doesn't saw what method he used. I completely forgot to ask him, was busy trying to find my insurance card. But yeah the 9500ix is almost brand new and its updated so not really sure what was up. I also don't believe they could've used X Band, I do however have it switched off. Seattle/Tacoma PD's and WSP got pretty big budgets so they use a lot of KA/Laser. Not sure about K-Band but I keep it on anyway. I had guessed they used some sort of Instant-On but I didn't pick up anything. I'm almost unfamiliar with VASCAR or anything like that.

P.S. VeilGuy, bought some Veil and I really like it Make's my headlights look really cool and it wowed my girlfriend. Haven't got any laser show at my in awhile which is good, but I'm sure it'll give me some break time. Great product!

TSi... why does your wife drive the WRX?
