9500ix saved my ass today. I was out cruising around with 9500ix and my Starbucks White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha hoping to bust an obvious speed trap but the Brentwood Po-Po still caught me off guard. I was about to crest a slight hill with a sound barrier to my left when I get a 34.7 Ka alert about .5 miles away. The 9500 quickly reached full strength but I saw no marked cars. Sure enough as soon as I passed the end of the wall I see a Brentwood PD Impala parked in a driveway on the other side of the wall shooting C/O KA. I wouldn't have had a snowballs chance in Florida to slowdown in time without a radar detector and I was going between 40 and 45 in a 35 zone. Turned around filmed him going in the oppo. direction and flashed oncoming traffic because I knew the soccer moms in the SUVs would get nabbed if they passed him going more than 7 or 8 over the PSL. The wall likely decreased my detection and thank God they don't use I/O or laser. I might have been pulled over. Click the links below to see what I am talking about.
Traveling down hill
Notice a speed limit sign right in advance of the trap
Looking in you RV mirror and realizing you're busted...Coincidentally he was parked right where that Silver Mercury is.
Brentwood Police have a well known reputation for strict speed limit enforcement.
