    Default V1 laser alert from the rear?

    I was getting laser alert from the rear of my car last night. I know that it was probibally a false, but what could have been setting it off? Car brake lights going the opposing way on the highway?

    There were no cars behind me, only cars driving away from me

    Sethy i get false lazers alerts from red neon signs. Also when its rains it seems to false alot more around them. I have never had a lazer alot from car lights . In my house bus yesterday my V1 is mounted a good 7 foot above my headlights and number plate, this is true i got a lazer alert from a cop who was just 50 foot in front of me! So the dam thing has got red hot lazers detection. (I almost dropped my wine he he)It could of been a cop you never no!

    Could it be...

    Brake lights from receding vehicles on the opposite lane.

    On page 24 of the manual (2004-13) it states that brake lights can be the source of a rare laser false.

    So its possible, I guess.
