    Chance that there was a fith that only had Ka and took off after someone. Are you sure that there was not another "gunner" and that the four you saw were the chase vehicles!

    they were there becuz they were puttin up new traffic lights in a major intersection, i searched around lookn for a laserer didnt see him mayb he was hidden, but i got laser like constantly for 5 mins straight every 5-10 seconds, and as soon as i turned i was makin a left turn and i got about 30 feet away from them my ka detection stoped so i was kinda disappointed in that

    By chance are in you Florida, just that they are rehanging lights everywhere down here. Some LEO have the new LED light bars and perhaps that was the cause, anythings possible false or not.

    yeah then the laser was coming from their lightbars.


    sorry to hear about your ticket, maybe he was using laser and the K was a false, i dont know though, or maybe he got you with POP, and issued you a ticket with it, which isnt suppose to happen.

    what part of fla?
