Coming from my friends house in the early AM there was a vehicle stopped with only the parking lights. All of a sudden the V1 gave a laser alert. GF was driving since I had been drinking I told her to slow down as she was going about 7 over 30mph PSL. When we get closer luckily it turned out to be an Infiniti FX SUV dropping someone off curbside. Still made my blood pressure rise since have never encountered a laser false on this particular stretch of road.

Yeah those falses can be a pain.

One time I was driving through the Bay Area, it was late at night with light traffic and I just wanted to get where I was going so I was pushing it any going 90 in the express lane when I got (what I presume was) a laser false.
I do feel like the V1 Laser alert is less startling than the one my last detector, an Escort 8500 X50, had.
