I was coming to the top of a rise near Temecula. I saw all the brake lights as people crested the hill, noses diving forward, so I lifted.

Guess who got pulled over and cited???
You were the unlucky one that day. Somebody always is. Was it a LIDAR reading? If so, the officer had already beamed you from quite a distance away.
If so he's a better shot than you . I was in a pack of about 10. They all hit the brakes hard and I lifted

It was a nice opportunity to show my teenage son how not to end up calling me from jail. Officer matched what the e90 digital display read within 1 mph

Funny thing, White guy with 3 Hispanic passengers, but we were heading South
