AP Is Worried About the Mail - A Cop Thing.....
I'm driving through Bungendore between Canberra and Batemans Bay, and wouldn't you know the main highway is a 50 zone! So, you gotta say the cops are right onto this so I sit on 50 with the cruise control set. Lo and behold, coming the opposite way is mr scum in a VX SS. The dog barked showing he was using instant on mode in a highly built up area.
Then, it goes up to 60 and I punch up the cruise to 60 only it momentarily overshoots up to say 65 or so. Being so scared, and I'm looking at the speedo so hard, by the time I look up there's a cop car on the other side of the road pointing at me behind a row of trees. I instinctively brake even though I suspect I'm not doing anything wrong. No barking though!
As I drive past the fat guy in the driver's seat looks at me hard and writes something down on a clipboard. It's a VX SS with radar on the roof rack, and I am 99%+ sure there was someone in the passenger seat.
However, I didn't get stopped.
Questions: (not being up to speed on laser)
1. I was told that laser requires stopping of the target vehicle?
2. Are the chasers equipped with camera equipment that prevents you having to be stopped?
3. Can laser be used through the windscreen? (I thought it couldn't due to refraction of high frequency light)
I took video and pictures of the scene and if they used radar (my equipment says not) they don't have a leg to stand on in court. I'll beat that one, but laser and the circumstances have me fretting. Thing is I wasn't doing anything wrong (very good boy lately).
Maybe cops have a sense of humour and he was dicking with me.....
