So I was driving from Austin to Dallas about 2 weeks ago on IH-35 N. I'm cruising along with my V1 scanning the road ahead as far as I can see. Well after driving for ~1.5 hrs straight, I get a little tired of scanning ahead and start daydreaming a little not paying 110% to possible cops on the road, maybe 50% alert now.
Then I see out in the distance about 1/2 mile an SUV parked perpendicular on the side of the road. I just thought to myself, eh, whatever nothing special. WRONG, it was a LEO shooting laser. I was doing close to 80 in a 65 (it was pretty dark now) when the V1 just goes crazy on laser.
I promptly hit the brakes having a heart attack and pissing myself at the same time. Watched as my speedo dropped to around 65 with the laser alert still going for a good 2 seconds after I slowed down to PSL.
I thought for sure he was gonna pull out behind me as I passed him :shock: , but nope, he didnt move.
What a relief.
My guess is either he didnt get a good lock which gave me time to slow down or just didnt care
O well, that goes down as a save in my book 8)
