Due to local public pressure, the police have adopted the tactic of running a two car rolling speed trap along this route.......you see the the first police car and dial it down......but he has already radioed your speed back to the police car that's following behind him.........you think it's all good having met the one car and dial it back up........and then you get stopped by the second car,who now has the two speed readings on you to compare
I was dicussing with the officer,the possibility of giving this old guy a warning, when around the corner comes four sport bikes,doing the speed limit, because they had been warned,by hand signal that there was a police car on the road,.....but not two. The first rider gives the officer thumbs down for stopping bikes,the last rider in line,is a little more expressive and gives the one finger salute
Around the corner they go and you can hear them ramping up,totally unaware that they are riding into a trap My officer sprints back to his car,yelling over his shoulder "you've got your warning"
I guess the message here is that the police are changing tatics and aggressivly targetting riders on these popular roads
The key word here is "targetting",with todays penalties it might be worth the argument in traffic court,even if only for a reduced outcome,like,say keeping your bike!
And I wish to thank that fourth rider in line,things could have gone rather badly and expensive for me had you not come along,Truly, thank you,I owe you one and I hope they didn't come down too hard on you
