Well-said.

There's something so ingrained in our society that most will automatically tap the brakes, regardless of if they're well over the speed limit or even well under, when they come into sight of an enforcer.

In keeping up one's situational awareness, as VG/STH pointed out in the other thread, uncharacteristic flaring of brake-lights from further up-road should signal caution to the attentive driver, be it a potential enforcement scenario up ahead, or any other potential road-hazard.

When driving with no traffic on the road, keep it to less than 10over PSL if you are not familiar with the surroundings!
This should also include further active monitoring of ambient traffic flow - for if everyone suddenly drops to-PSL in a certain area, it's likely to be a tip-off of a strictly-enforced "speed-trap," where such conventions of the road may not apply.

Lindale, Ohio, serves as a nice example - where both before and after the highway passes through the township, everyone cruises along at their usual speeds.

But hit the township's enforcement limits, suddenly, everyone drops to-PSL. It's easy to spot the poor out-of-towners, there.

Yep, pacing is a big problem for me.

Some are too slow, others too fast - the latter, though, still serve a purpose, as for the short time that they remain within range, they still serve well.

Occasionally you can Jedi mind trick someone into being your rabbit. This is done when you pass someone going slower than you and they use you for a rabbit. After a few miles you slow and the weak have become addicted to that speed and pass you to become the rabbit.
^ That's a great trick!

A business associate and good friend of mine suggested a couple of days ago that I should [publish] video showing me setting up a chaser (unintentionally turned rabbit) to get nailed by a trooper.

While, I suspect there is some entertainment value in such a thing, I don't know if I have the heart or stomach for it.

I've tried it several times it just never seems to work. If you have video of it I would love to see it.

C4,

Alas, my friend, I do not have any, for I have never tried.

I'd only be able to do that if the chaser/rabbit was a total asshat......
