They're Baaaaaaaaaacck! [Police back on duty]

When the lockdown went into effect and traffic was greatly reduced, police traffic enforcement disappeared as well. Normally, on that infamous stretch of West 95th Street between Western Avenue and I-294, I pick up at least a half dozen different radar units aggressively patrolling Evergreen Park and Oak Lawn. I was actually traveling that area and picking up nothing.

Within the last few days, though, the police seem to be back. I'm picking up the normal amount of radar signatures in the various different areas in which I drive. I'm wondering if it is the same in all of suburban America.
