Here in FL we have the unfortunate distinction of periodical airborne VASCAR on our highways. This has been a fact of life for as long as I have been driving in this state. By now, it seems that all of the best stretches of highway have white lines across them. Some are old and some are new, but the only time you don't see it is when the road has just been repaved.
It has always bothered me that I can't just go out and get an airplane detector to mount next to my radar detector. Now, thanks to a few postings on this site, I happened to notice that there are a few people who bought Portable Collision Avoidance Systems (PCAS) to use as airplane detectors in their cars. This seems to be such a great Idea, but I haven't seen any reports on actual results on their use.
Has anyone else done this? If so, how did it work out?
I was lucky enough to find a very inexpensive PCAS system on Ebay (for $80 ) I'm going to try this out, and post what I find here. Unfortunately, aerial speed traps are expensive, so they are not done all the time. This could work out more like spotting Bigfoot than anything else.
The good thing is that in this case, I know that Bigfoot likes the turnpike on busy travel holiday weekends that happen to be sunny.
If anyone has any experience or thoughts on this, please post.
