    Default laser false alert

    Is there such thing as a false laser alert, I was driving down a highway I normally drive down and suddenly I got a crazy alert I have never seen before, it was the laser alert so I looked around and all I could see was a garage door open on someones house, that was it. I guess they could have been hiding very well, just curious what caused it thats all, I was using the x50.

    Yes laser false alerts are fairly common. V1 ares prone to false from the tailights of some cars. The Bel/Escort products can false based on RF interference ie around airports is common. I think your EZ Pass system also gives falses as well as cell phones in some cases.

    And my own personal false when I honk my horn (on bike) I get a Laser Alert.

    Laser alerts from some vehicles with a lidar based cruise control are possible. I've gotten an alert when driving past a survey crew that was using a laser sight. Some neon signs, and also those large matrix signs can cause alerts.

    laser alerts can be caused by anything operating in the infrared 904nm region.

    neon lights, infra red detection beams found on alarm systems.

    laser cruise control...... infra red traffic counters...
