My 78SE laser-alerted unexpectently the other day when i ran my windshield washers. Repeated it several times and the RD alerted everytime like clockwork.
Some observations from a little experimenting:
-The detector has to be directly facing the sun with the sun at just the right angle
-Turning on the wipers alone without the washer fluid will not trigger an alert
-Turning on the wipers and washer facing away from the sun will not trigger an alert
-Apparently the combination of:
bright sun + washer fluid + wipers moving + critical sun's angle = laser alert
I'm not complaining, in fact i think its a 'feature' to test the laser detection function.
Forgot to log any laser ID info though.
Any comments? Explanations?
