I was traveling west on I-10 near the Mississippi Louisiana Border. As I entered the city of Slidell, I got the dreaded "scare the life out of me" laser alert.
It lasted for a fraction of a second, I slow IMMEDIATELY.......
I see nothing............... for a solid mile........ then it hits me again, for about 1.5 seconds this time. I am of course at PSL due to the first alert.
I see the LEO, hidden behind a broken down Big Rig, standing outside the patrol car... shooting Laser... about 800 ft ahead. (ironically, without an alert, he would have not been noticed until point blank distance - but thats why we have RD's)
I got a full mile laser warning -first alert........ the second alert, any RD would have picked up, but that one was the death shot. Sniffing out a fraction of a stray laser signal at a mile is amazing.... I slowed from 15mph over down to the PSL instantly and long before I was in danger.
The only hope we have, short of a jammer, is the ability to sniff out the extremely narrow beam at maximum distances....V1...... king of laser.
