Just this week I was traveling from Albany to Binghamton, NY, on I-88, the cruise control set at only my confessor will know. There were a few vehicles to my rear, half-mile to a mile back. I started getting chirps–bogey behind! I kept watching but nothing was gaining on me. The chirping continued, however, just hanging back there, nothing urgent.
Then I saw a white sedan getting bigger in the mirror. I throttled back to an arguably defensible rate and noticed the white sedan was a Chevy Impala of a recent vintage with Ohio plates, not likely to be a stalker. It soon passed doing north of 85. The trailing bogey was still back there, but now the chirping quickened and soon I saw the silhouette of a New York State Trooper–they’re using Dodges, I think–and it came by me fast. In only seconds, I watched him pull over the Impala.
I’ve had a V1 for nigh on to a decade–a V1 Gen2 now–and this is just one more time that an enforcer was sniffed out while sneaking up from behind. If you’re a road warrior, you can’t beat V1 Gen2.
