So I've been driving up and down I-5 between Olympia and Seattle for quite some time now. When I first got my Valentine, I would get really irritated at the bursts of K that I would get around DuPont and Fort Lewis areas.
It is usually about every 20-30 seconds, you'd get a full shot of K like a cop had just nailed you with some instant-on. Scares you enough at times to make you jump and hit the brakes, but makes it hard to know when it's a cop or not. I couldn't figure out for the longest time what the deal was. I just assumed maybe it was air traffic radar I was picking up or something.
Just recently, I was reading on the WSDOT website about how they had just started traffic monitoring and set up new cameras in the Olympia area. Well the next day, now I have that same annoying repeating K down the freeways in town. It's killing me.
Now when you're in Seattle, I'm guessing they use the type of radar described in the sticky on the V1 page, and thats why it doesn't go off. But these signals are all new, and probably are using something different to differentiate the directional traffic...
Anybody have any ideas what to do about this? It make the V1 useless from Olympia all the way to Tacoma. And they even are monitoring with these same devices all the way up north of Seattle as well... Around Marysville, etc.
