My wife and I were driving down Royal Palm Beach Blvd today and came upon a speed trap just after the infamous spot where the speed limit drops from 55 to 35. There is a slight curve in the road here causing some minor obstruction of vision. As we were approaching the curve, the X50 gave a brief K band alert. My wife was driving and I told her to slow down since I have driven this road numerous times and a random K band signal is out of place. As we rounded the curve a few second later, the X50 went off again full strength K band. I spotted a member of West Palm Beach's finest in a Bronco pointing a gun right at us. It was silver and boxy. Not sure how else to describe it. It reminded me of lidar that I have seen them use with more frequency. The X50 is mounted high, so it wouldn't necessarily catch lidar directed at us. What I'm trying to figure out is - was the guy running solely K band or was he running lidar yet he left his K band unit on?
It doesn't really matter I suppose. Just curious.
