Default Big time save: Zr4 + veil!

Well I experienced a BIG time save today on I-95 southbound north of I-695 outside of Baltimore with two state troopers operating LTI lasers.

I was in the left lane, cruising WELL ABOVE the posted limit and was a sitting duck, when my 9500ci/ZR4 starting alerting to laser jamming in the front. I managed to safely change lanes (into the center) and duck behind another vehicle to block the majority of the view of my vehicle (except for the driver's side lights).

As I passed him, he came out to the highway, turned on his rollers, and...subsequently pulled SOMEONE ELSE OVER.

Had it not been for the ZR4/Veil combo on my silver Bimmer, he would have had me dead to rights in the left lane, no question about it.

[Some] people like to bash the ZR4, Veil or both. But I have yet to have my Veil/ZR4/9500ci combination fail me on laser in the REAL-WORLD, not some canned test course.

It's been a little while since I have gotten tagged with laser, so pardon me if I sound a little giddy, but damn, that was fun (after it was terrifying).

Very nice. My 9500ci/ZR4's have saved me a few times.

Yeah, but it's a good thing for Veil Guy that LEO didn't aim for his weak spot.
