Radar Detector - New Vehicle Blind Spot Sensors

So I get a lot of low-magnitude K-band alerts with my Escort 9500ix on the highway. I've noticed it around semi-trucks and after a little research I learned that a lot of them have blind-spot sensor and I believe this is what is setting off my detector. The bad news is that A LOT of new cars are equipped with blind spot warning features which is basically a prox sensor that sets off a radar detector!

Is there anything I can do about this besides ignoring these false alerts? Anyone else also experiencing this?

hmmmmm I have the same detector.....and the only time my K band goes off is in town, which doesn't bother me as I'm in town, and some of the little town PD's are still using some older gun that use it.....but as I said, its in town so I couldn't care less.
