Default K Band Close Call

Driving to the car dealer yesterday morning. Doing 10 over when this Grand Cherokee goes FLYING past me. Just as we round a bend, I get a very light K-band hit. No more than 1-2 bars on the strength meter, ramping up to 3 bars.

I slow, and just as I do, I see a local PD guy sitting on a side street, shooting traffic coming the opposite direction. I actually saw him lower the radar gun, which was a small, dark-colored gun with a round barrel and white end cap. Got another k-band hit as I passed him, this time about 3-4 bars.

He didn't take off after the Grand Cherokee, which never even saw him, so he must have been working on eastbound traffic instead of our westbound, but due to the curve, and the fact that he was using instant-on, I'm lucking I got the .1-.2 miles notice I got.

Not counting it as a save, but I haven't seen LEOs there before, so at least it was an addition to my mind's database of speed trap locations!
