OH Troopers have raised speed detection to a new art form, compared to the other states around them the OH State Trooper is the master and IN and PA are the amatuers. KY, if you get caught in KY, well you asked for it, those guys don't exactly hide their stuff if you have a decent detector.
OH is a tough state to get caught speeding in, they don't cut anyone slack. You get pulled over, you're getting a ticket. I used to commute to Oswego, NY and after getting nailed in OH several times I simply quit speeding there. 7 miles over the limit with a radar detector is the most I drive. And I use radar detection on all of the bands, including laser.
Here is some interestig trivia about the OH State Tropper cars.
1. They are tough to see, they paint them gray, same as my old '04 RT but all of decals on the sides are non-reflective. When they park in the median, think US 30, they simply disappear at night or even in the twilight. You don't know they are there until they light it up.
2. They use lasers, a lot,
3. They like to set up tricky little speed traps, shoot you from behind off an overpass with a car positioned ahead to cite you, that kind of fair stuff.
5. They could be driving any kind of unmarked car or truck.
6. They have been known to use "instant on" K and Ka bands.
And OH has big deer, a lot of them, as well as PA, IN and IL
Be safe out there guys, have a good trip and enjoy yourselves.
See you in the beer tent.
