Glenn has posted at times on red light traffic cameras. Courtesy of the Howard Stern Show [he doesn't endorse, he just reports], here's a product that defeats the camera system. Seems a good way to thwart the inevitable mistakes these automated systems make. And by the way, how does one cross-examine an automated camera, if one contests one of these tickets?

Is this Photoblocker spray legal? Who knows? I recommend you speak with your jurisprudential professional before using it, though

The spray would be illegal in Minnesota, per Minn.Stat. 169.79, subd. 7: "It is unlawful to cover any assigned letters and numbers or the name of the state of origin of a license plate with any material whatever, including any clear or colorless material that affects the plate's visibility or reflectivity."

PhotoBlocker Spray

Now, for some car owners, this may be a "grey territory" tactic. PhotoBlocker Spray is a patent-pending tested and proven spray-on technology that makes your car's licence plate invisible to traffic cameras.

PhotoBlocker’s special formula produces a high-powered gloss that reflects the flash back towards the camera. This overexposes the image of your license plate, rendering the picture unreadable. With PhotoBlocker, your license plate is invisible to traffic cameras yet remains completely legible to the naked eye.

Is PhotoBlocker Spray Legal?

According to the product manufacturers, the answer is "yes." KXAN from Austin, Texas, interviewed citizens and city officials and determined that PhotoBlocker Spray is NOT illegal. They also ran an official test using appropriate traffic camera technology and the picture of the treated license plate was so over-exposed that all they got was a screen of white flash! You can a video of these results on the product's website.

On another video, available on the product site, FOX 31 News of Denver teamed up with the Denver Police Department to conduct legitimate tests of the products using the same traffic cameras that are out on the streets. The results were surprisingly effective.

The site also offers video evidence that many traffic cameras are faulty and argues that this justifies the use of their product.

PhotoBlocker Spray comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and includes a bonus downloadable e-book written by a traffic court judge and a traffic attorney that show you how you can legally fight red-light and speed camera tickets in court ... and win!
