Photoblocker Spray

Now please don't get the idea that I'm someone who speeds everywhere like a hoon! However, there's a bit of a debate going on in another forum about the effectiveness of this stuff. The trouble is that no-one has tried it, so the statements are all really just opinions.

I was wondering whether anyone here has tried this stuff (you spray it on your number-plate and it supposedly stops your registration being recorded by road-side speed cameras). If you have, did/does it work? I'd like to take some informed opinions back to the other site.

When a passenger of the foot moves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously to him at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth the warning, "Hi, hi."

I think this is a typical no good TV-Shop product . If you still believe in it you should propobly have a friend of you testing it first.

I've heard hairspray will do the trick also and I do believe it's illeagal and most likely for a reason...but as WB suggested I wouldn't trust it.

I am however tempted to go there myself now that the police are playing dirty with speed cameras in wheelie bins and fruit crates on our favorites twisties...after they lowered the speed limits as well.

There is also a product called veil that you can put on the front of your bike or car which makes it very difficult for the laser to get a lock on you but it apparently is difficult (not impossible) to get a nice shine on your paintwork with it.

hi svent
my mate here in melb tried a number of options on the plate thing, as he quite frankly is a hoon, with an animal of a bike, (tlr 1000r) and photoblocker did not work, the only one that works 100% was confiscated by police when we rode to phillip island last year. he was fined $500 on the spot when pulled over. It was a number plate cover that has some kind of glare on it, when photod it blurs, when you look at the plate on an angle you cant see the plate. As i said we or he was pulled over the cop saw it , and took it right off him, and gave him the fine. Harsh. Now the cheeky buggerof my mate, has a gas kit on his number plate cover. Which is very funny actually when he feels like letting the bike rip, he presses a button mounted next to his indicator lever, and it injects a gas like thing that fogs up the plate completly. If you want to know more about it, i can ask him where he got it. One of his other ventures was the hinge lever on the plate, which again when he felt like going hrd, he pulled a lever which he mounted under the seat, andit would lift the number plate up under the seat. Similart to a hinge on a door. When i think of all these little things he has done or concocted just to avoid a fine, it actually makes me laugh. Not that i condone this kind of behavioiur.

I saw a demonstration by the roads authority of this stuff... the light from the flash on the camera reflects back and the number plate appears white in the photo. HOWEVER, the roads guys demonstrated that adjusting the contrast on the digital photo eliminated the glare and the number was clearly visible.

Of course you could argue they manipulated the image, but to do that you'd effectively have to admit that you unlawfully tried to obstruct your number plate!!!

Hey, as an anarchist I like you friend's approach.

After all, all is fair in love and war, is it not? And this is war.

Get him to do some "how to instructions" but don't post on the board.
We could circulate by email to list members......

I 'would' be interested in knowing more about that. The WA police are only slightly behind the SA police in terms of ignoring road safety for revenue raising...
