    Default Question about PA?

    Driving with my mom home from school she had brought my BEL 995 along but didn'ty turn it on, on the way up. I had it turned on the way home and she really like the detector and it performed great all showing where the speed traps, most Ka through NY and PA, NJ we got no treats.

    But does PA use laser???? were were driving down the road and we got a laser alert. the Detector was mounted low just above wipers.

    Also when driving by the signs that are pulled by a trailer and parked on the side of the road we got a K-band signal to the point that is went to full strength what could that be?

    Don't know about the laser alert, but those big information signs often have a radar transmitter installed. I don't know for what purpose, but they are annoying as hell. I encounter then constantly in MA and NY.

    What I'm talking about are the large, orange, and usually portable signs that are placed by the side of the road to display information to about construction, road conditions, etc.

    Here's a little one:

    Yeah it was annoying i turned on SWS thinking that it might be an SWS signal but we saw no more signs :?

    Laser alert could of been sun? but my mom's car was extremely dirty so i doubt it was reflection off the hood

    GMC/Chevy SUVs with the neon third brake light can do it, too. When I get a laser false it's usually because of one of those things.

    Interestingly enough I just had a similar laser false yesterday. I wasn't really going fast enough to be bothered with at the time anyway but it really had me wondering. No cops in sight, though. The only thing i can come up with is that, since I was in the left lane and coming through a left-hand turn, maybe it saw the laser from one of those fancy new active cruise control systems? There was really nothing else...not even the usual neon brake light.

    crazyVOLVOrob,

    Interesting that you asked this question.

    PA has been loathe to adopt laser.

    I have spoken to a laser gun manufacture who just informed me that PA is making the neccessary arrangements to have laser in operation for traffic enforcement later this year.

    I am in the process of speaking to the head of the department in Harrisburg that is handling this issue. We have been playing telephone tag but when I get an officlal answer, I will post what I find.

    At any rate, I am certain that laser will be here in PA soon. If I can get a heads up one where it is going to be used, I'll post that as well.

    Stay tuned...
