Has anyone else experienced "Truspeed" false alerts from newer Mercedes vehicles, or any other vehicles for that matter?

I've gotten 2-3 of these falses in the last 2 weeks. Any future plans to add some kind of false rejection for these newer vehicles, similar to the "Poliscan False Rejection" option within the ALP configuration, or would that be too risky (missed real alerts)?

looks like Mercedes has a large list of sensing capabilities. According to their website, here are some of the possible culprits:
  • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC
  • Active Steering Assist
  • Evasive Steering Assist
  • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function
  • Active Emergency Stop Assist
  • Active Speed Limit Assist
  • Active Blind Spot Assist
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist
  • Active Lane Change Assist
  • Pre-Safe Plus (Rear radar sensor)
  • Pre-Safe Impulse Side
  • Active Stop and Go Assist
  • Route Based Speed Adaptation
  • Speed Limit Assist

Yes I've had two more of these Mercedes Truspeed incidents since the one that I posted here and has been linked above. It's annoying but not terribly common.

It's the mercedes LED headlights that do it, not all of them but the newest generation does.

First of all, let me tell you something about these MERCEDES BENZ garbage options. I own one, on a rainy icy night coming across the river on a bridge, a faulty sensor locked my front right tire up and almost caused me to flip over the bridge. Re-read this.

Only use ALP when your spirited driving.
It's ashame, engineers have to use laser to make human decisions while driving lol. I absolutely hate all of those bells and whistles in these newer cars, because it makes the owners drive slow and stupid and a lot of noise in the cabin.
