Anyone ever have a save where you would normally exceed the PSL but the detector alerted you to a LEO (maybe out of sight) in the vicinity so you slowed down just in case?
Had an interesting one yesterday. I was daydreaming down a 4 lane 60mph highway and slowed down to make a right turn at an intersection to drive down a 2 lane country highway. This freshly paved country highway for some unknown reason has a posted 45 mph limit which no one including myself obeys. Typical speed is around 60 mph!
My 78SE alerted K band for a few seconds at the intersection which is a remote area where i've never received any falses before. Looked around, didn't see any LEOs. Cautious now, shortly after i completed the right turn, there he was in my rear view mirror, a nice shiny County Sheriff's squad car following me.
Needless to say i did the PSL!
I'm assuming the LEO shut down his CO radar when he neared that intersection. Whether he turned his radar back on again, i don't know because as soon as i seen him following closely behind, i shut off my detector.
