MA Statie pulled the same move on me a few years ago. Late at 
night on the Mass turnpike, minding my freaking business.

Empty road, 65 mph (back when the limit was 55).

Did I mention empty road?

My V1 lights up full. Brake test. Lights go on behind me.

Freaking statie tailed me in the dark and lit me up with his 
radar. I'll bet that if I hadn't hit my brakes (indicating that I 
was running a RD), he would have moved on.

I was bullshit, took the damn thing to court. Didn't have a leg to 
stand on.
