Had a classic 33.8 problem today.
Was driving westbound on a 6-lane highway that is divided by only a concrete median, so the opposing lanes are only 5-6 feet apart. (Gardiner Expressway for those of you familiar with Toronto.)
Sti alerts Ka band, I think wow, its definately 33.8. Problem is the marked cruiser is four (4) car lengths away heading towards me. I'll say it again, FOUR CAR LENGTHS AWAY, LESS THAN 100 FEET, before the Sti alerted. I was in the westbound left-most lane, he was in the eastbound left-most lane, so we were separated by the few feet of the median.
This was in bumper to bumper traffic that was crawling along at less than 15 mph. I know it was constant on, because the Sti kept alerting for a short while after I passed the cop.
BTW, sending the unit back next week to Ohio for a "tune up" because I can't get it fixed at the same damn factory that makes them.
