Default First real LIDAR hit with my ZR4, STi Driver and VEIL

On my way home from work today travelling on I-290 W, I encountered very heavy traffic (this was about 4:45 pm) coming up on the Colvin Ave. exit. I picked up a brief Ka hit, so I started looking for the source. Sitting in the turn-around area was a NY State Trooper running the Ultralyte 100LR. Estimated rate of speed was around 75 MPH. I was almost bumper to bumper with the car in front of me, then...LASER ALERT! I would guesstimate that the distance from me and the trooper was around 500 feet or less when I was initially hit. He hit me twice, apparently with no luck (I didn't have time to double-tap the MUTE button), and I cruised past him at around 70 MPH. Don't know for sure, but I think I may have scored a JTG (my system has not yet been tested against LIDAR previously, mind you). Regardless, the trooper didn't give chase.

Thumbs up Nice!!

vschuel,

Nice save!! I'm sure if that officer would have had the chance, he might have given chase. Then again They usually target the next car if they have issues targeting certain cars. Either way that was a great save. Thank you for sharing.

Like I said, it was my first read LIDAR encounter. Just knowing it (the ZR4) works properly is definitely good news!

Yeah, I was a little nervous that he would fly after me, but I'm glad he didn't!!!
