Holy insane on the West-Side!

The wifey and I traveled out West, to Crocker Park, to get a gift-certificate for our nanny, this past weekend.

We were in the wifey's WRX, which has no countermeasures save my old Rev 5 x50, mounted high - hardwired for quick plug-in in her car, with the wiring totally concealed, and the SmartCord remote in the ashtray cubby:



^ It's actually usually mounted just a bit higher than this. This detector is taken, with the mount, on and off the windshield every time I use it in the wifey's car, as she doesn't like to have a detector.



-----

I knew we should've taken my car, instead!

No, I didn't get a ticket - I knew that there'd likely be some enforcement on the particular stretch that I'll bring up in a second, so it was an "eye save," as I saw the "wolf pack" in front of me light-up its brakes ... but it would've been fun.

The stretch of I-90, westbound, both in Rocky River and Westlake, was literally INFESTED with enforcers this past weekend.

Almost all had customers, and the single one which did not, was actively scouting, via LIDAR - and if the WRX had been hit, I received no alert, from my high-mounted Rev 5 (but this is unlikely, as I'd pulled in to the main-flow, well-before I'd crested the hill, into enforcement line-of-sight).

Of course, the wifey made fun of me: "why didn't your detector go off?"

:lol:

In all of my years in and traveling through all areas of Ohio (since 1997), I've never seen this:

Ohio State Highway Police - K-band.

The Trooper was blasting through the lanes, trying to catch-up to his customer.

I believe that the Trooper engaged with I/O K-band. The alert I received (face-on, across a 6-lane divided highway) was too short for it to have been anything other, even given the limited sightlines.

During pursuit and when he initiated the take-down, he kept his K-band blaring on C/O, as an added traffic-warning/safety measure. I was able to receive reflections from this signal, after having passed him, for well over a half-mile.

This means I've seen the Holy-Trinity of RADAR for Ohio's State Highway Patrol - Ka, K, and X, in both I/O and C/O.

And, of course, LIDAR.

Back when I lived in the Cleveland area, I think this was sometime in the 90's, someone took the city of Lindale to court over a speeding ticket and won. They argued that the city could not just issue speeding tikets for the sake of collecting revenue for the city. I believe they were able to demonstrate that a substantial portion of that city's revenue was derived from speeding tickets. The city did not have a highway entrance or exit within the city and the tickets were not issued for the sake of highway safety. The court ruled that Lindale could no longer put policeman on I-71 to issue tickets. I see on your forum that the city is back at it. Can anyone tell me if this ruling was overturned or do people just not know about this ruling? I would really like to know anything about that court case since I would like to use the same logic to fight frivolous parking tickets in San Francisco.

Default Frivolous parking tickets

Hi Cindy,

I'm unfamiliar with the Lindale case. But if you want to know for certain if the ruling was overturned, you might consider doing an online search of some Ohio state appellate courts.

Using that Ohio case as precedent for fighting California parking tickets might be a bit of a legal stretch, unless San Francisco's parking tickets generate a substantial portion of the civic revenue. But if they're frivolous, I'd say go get 'em. And good luck.
