    Default Solar powered K-band Bay Area

    I've been driving on I-580 for the past 6 months on my commute to work. Recieved a ticket about 3 months ago, so I decided to buy a radar detector(V1). So I've been riding for 3 months with nothing out of the ordinary. Some X and K band here and there, all coming from stores I'm sure.

    But the beginning of last week was special. As I drove along I-580, I got a strong burst of K-band... then it disappeared. This happened to me on and off, about every other mile on an ~ 10 mile stretch. There was clearly no cop around. So I thought it was someone with another radar detector. But I thought radar dectectors only emit Ka-band O_o. I was going to post that question here but I decided to just ignore if it doesn't happen again. But surprise surprise, the next day, same thing... and the next... all the way through the week. So last Friday, I decided to not just look front/side/and back... but UP. And there they were! Freakin K-band guns hooked up to solar panels and attached to the street lamps along the highway! One posted EVERY mile! What are they doing with these things?!?!

    There's also a similar thread in the Speed Trap Info section. It appears the drones may be part of the traffic monitoring system.
