I have been reading up on Alex Roy's countermeasures lately. For those who do not know he set the new NYC to California (Gumball) record at 31:04 hrs. He has tons of gear and mapped out the entire route ahead of time and I encourage every speeder who averages autobahn speeds where it is not legal to read his book "The Driver".
Anyhow, to my question. He used night vision (I think from a hummer, but on an M5) and gyro-stabilized binoculars (military grade stuff).
The night vision could be very very useful I think for high speed solo night speeding. It should give you advanced warning to potential lidar, IO, and vascar threats. If you see a car (indicated by hot engine) sitting on the side of the road then slow down to near-speedlimit velocity. Even if it is not a cop you could be protecting potential broke-down motorist that you would not have seen otherwise. Also, it could be a big animal or something. Nothing like hitting a cow or deer at triple digits. [Driving in northern Germany at 145 for extended periods of time is awesome -- but is scary as hell when you see 'warning deer' signs every 5 minutes].
The binocular equipped copilot is an idea that I have always had since I first started making frequent NC to FL I95 runs. However, the gyro-stabilizer they used is like 3000 dollars or so not including the binoculars. Without that its near impossible to see a cop from your moving car before they see you in the lidar sights, while standing/siting still. Still I would love to know if anyone has ever employed this technology or something similar. We all know what it is like to be doing well over the speed limit, then see a cop, hit the brakes, and then have the detector go off... an eye opening situation!! (pun intended)
Let me know what you guys think. By the way, I read a lot but rarely post and want to thank everyone for the useful input.
