Whoa, what is this then? :eek: :eek:

Driving today down A350, fast straight stretch.....

An oncoming grey Mondeo with flashing headlights doing over 100mph sent my laser detector beserk! :eek: :eek:

Mobile fast laser?????

Eek. Any ideas anyone???

Max :red:
Both flashing, or alternate flashing? Police cars are fitted with a laser speed detection thingy (trust me ;) ) so it might have been an unmarked traffic cop.

If it has Cruise control on the front of some cars-this uses Radar to judge distance-Could of been that-But probably not on a Mondeo!
Most likely unmarked Car.

My S5 is always getting activated by Tractors, I put it down to them using high power CB radio, as it is also triggered when I approach & pass a tall CB mast a few miles away

This Tractor Warning System has actually proved useful on a number of occasions when I`ve been driving a tad Briskly on Country lanes.

It also gets triggered if someone else with an S5 fitted gets around 15ft behind Mine, something to do with radiated I.F. probably :(
