vascar LINES. The timing lines (thick white lines) you see by most of the overpasses and on ramps.
Be careful there...I mean, they use radar in other spots, you don't need to see timing lines to see cops.
They've been starting to sit on the Southbound side JUST AFTER the 30 by-pass exit (I always start to pick up speed there...it's the exit before boot rd)...
They now sit in the grass (which is usually rather tall) and facing you...so, by the time you see him he's already got you timed. Be careful there...
I was under the impression that only staties were allowed to use radar, and all local cops had to use vascar. I know some law was in the works to change that, but I don't know if it was every passed or not.
Anyway, for anyone that doesn't know about vascar lines, if you are driving down a street, or a bypass, and you see 2 white lines running horizontally across the road, they are vascar lines. They usually have a bit of space between them. Thats how the local cops nab you for speeding. Basically they have a gun that nabs your speed when you cross the first line, and cross the second line, then averages the 2 speeds together. If you are over the speed limit, then you are ****ed. Once I had that figured out, I have gotten 1 speeding ticket since I have turned 16 (knock on wood), and I speed like hell. Its just all about knowing where the vascar lines are, and knowing where staties patrol, and local cops don't.
