Iím sure many of you have already heard of the Lexus Dynamic Laser cruise control. I had also but never really paid attention to it until now.
Earlier today I was on the highway cruising when I received a rear laser alert on my Passport SRX as well as Valentine one. (I recently purchased a 997 C4S Cab and it already had the SRX system installed.)
Instinctively I hit the brakes and looked in the rear view mirrors for the LEO. I had not passed under a bridge so I looked left and right but could not see anything. There was only one vehicle behind me and it was a Lexus with Dynamic Laser cruise control. I had just passed the vehicle when I received the alert. Suspecting it was probably the source I slowed down and positioned my Porsche to about 400 feet in front of the Lexus and I again received the laser alert.
As far as I know only Toyota and Lexus are currently using this technology but more are sure to follow.
Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it but know that we will be seeing more bogus rear laser alerts as more vehicles operate with Dynamic Laser cruise control.
Just a heads up.
