    Default consistent laser alert at road sign

    just wondering what is in the sign near my house.

    when taking i-95n in NYC there is an area that it splits to 495 which leads to the throgs neck bridge. my question is that directly at the split in the highway there is a traffic sign that displays construction information warnings ahead for the bridge. everytime i pass this sign i get a laser alert with the arrows pointing forward. does anyone know what is setting my v1 off?

    oh yeah and i experienced the envoy brake light laser false (about 10 times in 3 minutes cause i got caught behind him in traffic), that suv needs to be scrapped!!

    I've seen some road side signs, those with bright colorful lights in a matrix, that have caused false laser alerts on my V1. In the Bay area, there's one on 101 South. Something about them must generate light close enough to IR laser light to cause an alarm.

    Yep, the old Circle Star Theater sign in San Carlos you can pick it up northbound as well, it will set a V1 off every time. I like it as it is an excellent test.
    When I had my V1.8 (3.818) my V1.7 would actually pick it up better from the side as the old version has two of the six laser sensors angling off to the side.
