Last time I drove the 95 to Reno I noticed the NHP was was leaving their radar off, but would suddenly flip it on at the last minute against oncoming traffic. I assume a lot of people on 95 must have detectors and the NHP is changing tactics a bit.
I was on a motorcycle from Yerington to Schurz to Fallon and back to Reno just a few days ago. Since you also sometimes use 95, I will mention . . . .

U.S. 95 will be closed between Fallon, Nevada and Schurz, Nv April 19-29, 2021.

U.S. 95 will be closed between Fallon and Schurz April 19-29 as the Nevada Department of Transportation reconstructs a section of highway.

• Between 7a.m. April 19 and 7a.m. April 29, U.S. 95 will be closed between the Fallon landfill (one and a half miles south of Top Gun Raceway) and the rodeo grounds north of Schurz as crews reconstruct a section of highway.

• As the highway opens on April 29 through approximately May 9, traffic delays of up to 30 minutes will be in place as pilot cars detour alternating directions of traffic through the work zone and crews finalize reconstruction.

Nearly one dozen electronic highway message signs will be placed across the region advising drivers of the closure. Motorists are advised to use alternate highways and plan additional travel time while detouring the closure. The road work schedule is subject to change based on weather and other factors.

Crews will work 24-7 during the closure to excavate 10 feet of highway, and reinforce and compact a 2,000-foot section of the highway base before repaving. The reconstruction will help reinforce the deteriorating roadway base to provide a smoother and safer drive for motorists.

Further project information is available at dot.nv.gov

I have the same one. I really debated on this one or the Valentine. Went with this and set up the phone app and run them in conjunction. Couldn't be happier as it has paid for itself many times over. I get plenty of warning well before I can even see them. Its not like I run 15 to 20 over, but usually 5 to 10 depending on what I am driving. The wifes car attracts lots of attention, my dually not so much.
I don't know anyone that runs radar and stops ONLY for speed at 5-10 over, unless it is a school zone. Traffic guys are usually 15. I would do nothing less than 20, unless in a school zone.

I will do 5-8 over on the freeways. No radar detector and haven't been stopped in a personal vehicle for over 20 years (in this country).

Only 2 places I don't speed..... School Zones and small towns on a highway (like Searchlight).
