Default 6th sense cop radar?

Well, this morning I was driving in to work around 4am (2.5 hours early, but that'* another story) and I had this "feeling" that I was about to hit a speed trap. I had no reason for this "feeling" since there was no one else around and I rarely see and cops on my short drive to work. I slowed down a bit none the less and guess what I saw not more than a half mile down the road... a speed trap. There was a cop sitting behind a sound barrier clocking traffic (which was just me at 4am). The odd thing is that more than 50% of the time I get this "feeling" I usually come across a waiting cop within about a mile. Anyone else ever get "the feeling" like this?

Coinsidentaly, I normally drive like a bat out of hell, but yet no speeding tickets in over 10 years.

I was thinking how much it would suck to get a ticket before i got my first one a few weeks ago. It was freaky.

I usually can sense it. Once in a while though, one will catch me off guard.

Gordy, it'* not uncommon for people to sense radar. Especially when there are few distractions. Other animals besides humans can, too. Especially birds.

Yup. People feel it too, sometimes.

Geez, I'm the one with a bird name.
