Didn't get to drive the Thruway out towards Rochester in a couple months. I see Troop T (Troopers that patrol the Thruway) is using Troop G's (Albany area) tactics too now, aka, hiding on the right side of the road.
Yesterday, went from Albany to Rochester. No rain. From Albany to Utica, I saw two cars pulled over on the side. Other than that, no cops in the middle. After Syracuse, I saw two cops, driver's door to driver's door, on the right side of the road. No alert. I was doing 85. They must have been talking because I didn't get pulled over.
I had to stop at exit 43 and get gas. I was in some hillbilly town and I picked up a Ka. Speed limit was 30, so I figured since I didn't know the area, to slow down. There was some hills and stuff and I'd get a Ka alert and it'd go away. Then the alert stayed on. There was a lady trooper, (young and blonde ;-)), who was going the opposite way as me and had her constant on radar on. I was picking that up for about a mile. If only she knew the wonders of instant on.
K band drones on the middle and side of the road near Rochester. They're usually on the signs.
Today, it was raining off and on. Going from Rochester to Utica, no alerts until near Utica. I get a 2/9 signal and then it stops. I'm thinking, "oh a cop's going the opposite way, or instant on up ahead". I don't see anything. A minute later, I get another 2/9 signal and it stops a second or two later. I still see nothing. Drive for another mile or so, and get another 2/9 signal and it stops. Since I'm only using a Whistler 1744, I figure since this happened three times, it's just falsing. NOPE! I decide to bring my speed back up to 80 something and then I see my exit and slow down... about a tenth of a mile before my exit... guess what? Trooper with instant on. He didn't even shoot me since I saw my exit and was doing 70 by then. I was picking him up shooting people with instant on from about THREE miles away.
For my trip back to Albany tonight, hopefully it's raining just enough that they don't use laser.
