    Most definitly. A few times. I also got nailed by laser on 90 in New York. On route from Rochester to Buffalo. There was no one in front of me. I was doing 75 in a 65. Not overly speeding, just going with the flow of traffic . My V1 went off a little less than a 1000 feet (direct "on" laser hit). A trooper was hiding in the brush down on an incline. I hit the brakes, but not too hard. I figure the V1 with it's superior laser detection and my Veil saved my butt. I may have got it down to an acceptable speed when he finally locked on to me. You can tell because they leave their gun on longer as they can't get your speed. They both make a good combo if your targeted from a distance. If they pull the trigger up close, your SOL. But hopefully you will see the friendly evil officer before that point.

    Yeah, I've gotten an alert doing 80+ in a 70. The V1's laser detection works good when you have a rabbit. Especially at night!

    I got advanced warning from the car in front of me and hit the breaks. I had a blinder on there which kicked in when I was targeted so it was no big deal, but I was shocked I got advanced warning.

    Shockingly, one of the few times I wasn't on the lookout for laser while booking along, I got nailed with it. Never got a warning, which blows me away, as I've gotten them other times without me being the target...sometimes from three lanes over.

    I was stupidly cruising in the left lane in a line of cars going about 80-83 in a 70. Might be 65 MPH there...doesn't really matter. Anyway, I wasn't on proper lookout and the two cars in front of me dove right, leaving my lame self exposed...82 MPH. I'm still not convinced he nailed me, as I'd hope to have gotten at least a hint as I got nailed, but I was definitely ripe for the pickin', and if he got the people in front of me at that speed, that was mine, too. <hanging head in shame>

    So it goes. Got the ticket while outta state so it stays off my home record, at least for insurance purposes. You gotta pay to play, sometimes. I'm still a bit surprised I was actually driving the POS '99 Suckzuki Grand Vitara that fast, but I was in my hometown, so I was in my element.
