A speed trap I saw this morning. They were definitely using Lidar guns this time. I actually saw the sunlight reflecting off the front of his Lidar gun from pretty far away and he was looking through the HUD when I drove past him. The Pro 78se did not make a peep:

I went home, got into another car and went back out there. I placed the Pro 78se low on the windshield hoping for a better chance that it’ll see the laser beam. I did 3 more passes and not a single Laser Alert.
I feel sorry for this lady in the next lane that got pulled over for speeding up a bit to get in front of me:

I decided to do a simple test later on to see if my Pro 78se would still do Laser Alerts. I used the LCD screen in the car to trigger the Laser Alerts. It appears to be working:

I guess it just shows that Lidar Guns are difficult to detect sometimes. My other Lidar gun detections a while back were a lot better.
This one at ¼ mile away:

I don’t feel too bad about Pro 78se not able to detect the Lidar today, since it really wouldn’t have made any difference. Laser Jammers are the only protection against Lidar guns.
This speed trap was at the same location of that possible Q/T video I showed 2 weeks ago. They were on motorcycles last time and I’m now having some doubts as to whether or not that was in fact a Ka quick trigger. Hard to imagine the LEOs from the same police department using different guns 2 weeks apart. Even though I still think the guns looked different. Drives me crazy, not knowing for sure. I think I’ll have to stop and talk to them next time.
