    For those of you that frequent i90, there have been a trooper running around in an unmarked dark blue Ford Expedition. I believe it is Wedgewood Blue for those of you in the Ford family... Stock wheels, two small and one larger but bent antenna behind the C pillar.

    Good call, and thanks for the heads up. On I-5, there is a black SUV (can't remember the brand), white Volvo wagon, white Jeep Cherokee, and a number of various color 4-door sedans. You can pick them out, (usually) by the very dark window tint, stripped exteriors, and multiple antennas on back. Haven't seen it for a year, but they had a white taxi cab too. It said "Speedco" on the side and the top light.

    I remember seeing either in the paper or on this list that the State Patrol had requested another $300k for purchasing additional unmarked vehicles for this program....

    I would be happy to sell them a yellow unmarked car for 300k.

    got my one & only ticket in my 308 on I-90 between Vantage & Ellensburg - clocked by helicopter, pulled over by one of about a dozen chasers down the road.

    Don't forget to look carefully in their Front Grilles and Fronts of the Rear View mirrors for lights. You can usually see them pretty easily.

    Boy I hear that. Jeannie M. works better than any radar detector or police scanner could on their best day. She just got one dismissed for me (she is now a perfect 5 out of 5 for me in the last 4 years) and it seems that, once again, the court was unable to meet their burden of proof once her motions to suppress evidence were granted... whatever that means. The joy and jubilation I feel when I open one of these "victory" letters from her office makes the irritation of getting popped by one of Washington's finest gun-toting revenue-generating specialists seem very distant.

    Their was a flyer in the envelope with my last letter from her office. It seems Jeannie was featured in the May copy of "Vogue" magazine as a top lawyer for women.

    Bottom line is your going to get popped if you are foolish enough to be ripping it up on the Interstate.

    She saved my life twice. I think we (ferrari club) should invite her as a guess in one of the events

    And who is this Jeannie M.? I guess I know what she is, but how do a number of you know her? Does she specialize in tickets, or just a sideline? Seems like a good thing to know.

    I was out in the 360 for the first time in 2 weeks and 7 troopers were in very close proximity to me – that I know of. 5 on I90 (including one that tailed me for about 1 mile), and 2 on I5. I wasn’t speeding, but I sure felt like a criminal with all the attention. Must have been ticket writing competition day or something.
