Default Big Time Save: Veil G4 + Shifter ZR4

I had an incredible save tonight with Veil G4 and the Laser Shifter ZR4.

A buddy of mine and I just dropped a friend off at Walter Reed who sustained an injury in a recent Iraq tour and we were making our way back to southwest Maryland and I-270N towards Frederick away from the 495 Beltway west of DC.

It was nearly midnight as I was piloting my Silver 540i in the left lane of the standard roadway (the outer lane was HOV which were we directly adjacent to). Traffic was very light and there was a light mist/rain.

Well, no sooner than a minute after my friend warned me about heavy traffic enforcement does my Escort Passport 9500ci being alerting to front laser. At the time, I was traveling well in excess of the posted limit of 55mph (on a four lane highway).

At first, I didn't believe that I was being targeted and I was a little slow to get on the brake but as I started braking, the Beltronics STi-R started alerting as well.

At this point I realized that we were being targeted for sure.

I managed to safely bring my speed more in line with the posted limit all the while laughing with my buddy (as he had never experienced) what it was like to be in vehicle that had successful countermeasures.

After about eight seconds of continuous alerting, the laser stopped briefly on both units and then resumed all the way down to the point we passed the hidden patrol car which was parked in the outer shoulder under an overpass.

I suspect the officer was using an LTI Ultralyte and that he was not able to get a reading at any point during the encounter, which I estimated began at about 1500-1600 feet.

I know that had it not been for the Veil G4 and Shifter ZR4 doing their job, he would have had me dead to rights. This was a very very tricky and well hidden laser ambush in which we were able to completely disarm with these two countermeasures working together.

I wish I had the encounter on tape, because these products worked flawlessly this evening and allowed my to avoid a huge speeding ticket.

It's amazing how one feels afterword. It makes something from being potentially extremely painful into something that is down right entertaining, I have to say in all candor.

Steve, I wish you were there, you would have absolutely loved it!

jamin,

It really was. I wish you could have seen it.

If fact, truth be told, I was having so much fun with it, I didn't shut 'em down and I believe we JTG'd, him something that I discourage others from doing.

The thing is, we don't see any laser in PA where I live so I only can experience it when I am in other states. It's not something that happens every day. Coupling this fact is that my friend only heard about (from me) what it is we do. It wasn't until tonight that he actually experienced first hand what is was like.

Needless to say, he had a blast with it, too.

I supposed if I would see more laser action on a day-to-day basis, the novelty of the encounter would sort of wear off and I could have a better presence of mind to do the right thing and turn off the laser jamming/shifting function. It's simple enough, just a double tap on the 9500ci's mute button.

I'll try to remember that in the "heat of battle," the next time around...

But, tonight, I must admit, I felt a bit like a kid in a candy store.
