Default First LIDAR encounter with my 2003 Century...

Well, it finally hapenned on the way home from work...a LIDAR hit by the NY State Police!!!

I was travelling westbound on I-290 as I normally do every afternoon. I was coming up on the Niagara Falls Blvd. exit doing about 70, when I started picking up Ka (NYSP use 34.7). Instinctively I let my foot off the gas, then...LASER ALERT on my STi for about 2-3 seconds (my STi Driver is high-mounted in one of those visor cases, partially behind a tint strip). I was about .1-.2 miles away from the trooper, who was parked in a NO U-TURN area. He did not seem at all happy...either that or he was concentrating on his next victim. As I passed him...an immediate I/O Ka hit. Needless to say, I passed him unscathed at about 62-65 MPH (the speed limit on I-290 is 55 MPH). Funny thing is, I had not 2 but 3 coats of VEIL on my headlamps. I was trying to cover up some fisheyes, when my passenger side coating started to come off....you get the picture. Now, my HL's look almost jet black. I did buy a pair of Xenon halogen lamps to compensate.

VEIL and a VEIL'd Laser Shield were the only countermeasures besides my STi.

Thanks, VG. It's nice to be able to share experiences and not be ridiculed. With plate covers being illegal in New York, and with my headlights being rather dark, I honestly thought the trooper would come after me. Such was not the case.
