Today was a busy LEO day in Toronto with 5 encounters.
1) X-Band is alive. Lots of warning as the LEO was travelling northbound on 400 near Canal Rd. this morning. I was surprised to see X-band so I assume it was a rural OPP going home.
2) Lidar. Warning came too late but didn't stop me along Dundas west of Jane later that morning. As I passed, I could read Marksman.
3) Lidar Ticket!!!!!! About 1 km west of there, a second trap. STi GAVE NO WARNING! I was confused because the officer directed me off the road, yet I received no alert. Fortunately, I was not going too fast. The conditions made me realize how vulnerable we really are and the false sense of security. The lidar was pointed at the crest of a blind hill with a range of less than 200 ft. Lesson to all: the dispersion of laser is so small that STi did not see it even when the gun is right in front of you.
4) Lidar later that afternoon along Keele north of Dundas. No warning, it was facing the other way. Originally, I thought it was radar but saw it mounted on the tripod. But wait...Ka signal (strength 1) was what made me look for him.
5) Ka burst 30 seconds later. Undercover car was right on my tail. He pulled over the one in front of me instead. Whew! So the STi saved me.
What a day.
