I had a somewhat good "save" today from the 9500i. Or was I lucky?
Heading west on I-70 this afternoon in OK conditions. Good enough to cruise at higher speeds. I was driving an Escalade and a dark green or gray Ford Excursion had been tailing my a** hard for some time so I pulled over and he passed gracefully. About 4 miles down, I noticed he had a V1 mounted high and I hope he noticed I had my RD. I was using my Escort 9500i in Auto mode and traveling 95+ to pass him so my RD was at full sensitivity. He reduced his speed considerably down to 65 but I was still soaring past him at 95. I didn't think much of him slowing down. The next thing is the Escort is at full ramp up blaring KA. I ease of the accelerator and brake very smootley back down to 65. A state patrol was just sitting on the hard shoulder with his window down looking in his mirror. As the Ford is catching up to me I see him smiling from my side mirror, and as he rolls up I roll down my window and he laughs and gives his V1 a pat! I would of given him thumbs up or something but I exited at the next exit.
So, did the state patrol hit me with instant on or constant on? Did my 9500i alert me in time for me to break hard enough to slow down, making it a killer save? Did I break early enough for him to not get my reading? Or, did I slow down enough, early enough, for him to not get a reading but pick up someone else's speed?
I was alerted within 700 feet of the officer.
I wonder if the driver of the Excursion w/ he V1 is a member here!?
