    I have now on a few occasions driven past stationary fixed Lidar camera set up in back or front of police cars with no alarm given.
    Should this be happening?
    Is it because I don’t have rear sensors and it’s firing from behind that this happens or do I possibly have a problem.
    I will purchase rear sensors if this is the case
    Thanks

    Are you sure it is Lidar, not radar?
    Equipment connected to cars work only when operator turn it on, so it could be it was turned off.

    There is no fixed laser sensors in police cars. You most likely passed a car running ALPR Scanning or Radar that is not turned on.

    If it's just a police car they may not be running anything, do you have poliscan laser speed cameras in your area? If so do you have poliscan enabled in your settings? What color LED are you seeing when running?

    This user is down in Australia. He's probably seeing Poliscan or some other lidar we don't see here in the states.

    In Australia Poliscan's are usually placed on tripods on the side of the road. He said the devices were mounted in the back and front of the police car. I would bet its an ALPR scanner but without a photo its just a guess.

    Here is an example of one of these scanners..

    Below is a Poliscan Setup

    Thanks for reply guys.
    Yes am in Oz.
    The Police have vans set up beside the roads with a camera in either back or front, maybe even both, not sure.
    In I believe all cases they are Poliscan units which will take your speed either as you approach or pass them.
    Not sure if they have a nap a in the car for a few hours or if they park them there and come back later
    Anyway, I have had this a few times wher I get no alert and have always hoped it was just that they were not turned on yet, but don’t think so, which is why I asked if anyone else has has this happen, or is it possible my heads are on their way out

    Poli's are often setup to take rear shots now, the only sure fire way is to get a rear.. You may now and then see a camera setup on a tripod, these aren't a poliscan rather a Jenoptik Traffistar S350. Sadly ALP's detection range on these cameras is rather short, everytime I ask about improvements on this the answer is "we're working on it".

    Now and then I get no detection on a Poli as well, I'd suggest they are just in process of setting up.
