So today while driving to work on interstate 4 between Lakeland and Tampa. I hear a strange noise I never heard from my dfr7. I look up and it’s a laser hit!!!! I’m in oh shit panic mode I was doing 84 and tried to put on the brakes. He shot me probably 700 yards in front of me and the dfr7 was alerting the whole time even after I passed him. For some lucky reason or the dfr7 did save me, he didn’t pull out.

For people traveling to Florida this was a state trooper hidden between the bridge pilings of an overpass. Made it especially hard bc state troopers have a dark hood in front so it blends in with the shadow.

Sometimes they hide really well, and they use laser a lot in parts of FL... My jammers have been a good investment in this state thus far :)

Yea I got lucky with this one. But hey glad to know the dfr7 actually picks up laser even if it’s a notifier. I thought the laser was broken since I never heard it before! It was marked on daze too, but I chose to ignore It for some reason. Goes to show even if you get a ton of false cop alerts on daze slow down too one day it might save you!

He was looking for 85 possibly 90
He had you at 84 it's just every 10mins standing on I4 someone is doing 100 wo a detector because traffic law there is reasonable except over +50 multiple times

I always slow down with Daze alerts, fake or not, and not just at the icon but a few miles before and after since they are aware of it and they move.

Crazy though he kept shooting me with laser for so long. Like it was alerting 700 yards before I saw him then kept alerting till after I passed him

It is possible that he could not get a lock, while playing around with a DETC I noticed that, even shooting an unprotected truck I had some trouble getting a lock, While others were instant locks.
