Are there license plate covers that block cameras?

theres a paint that you can spray on to reflect so much light that it turns your plate into a white blob in the photos...dunno if it really works.

I'm not sure if they're license plate covers or something else that causes glare, but yes I read about something like this (probably on this forum).

I have a laptop privacy screen that blocks you from viewing my screen along one axis except an almost perpendicular angle. I imagine you could use that and have it block anything elevated though I think it would make it unviewable for someone in a car behind you as well. Regardless, I have found that the cameras at traffic lights are not a problem if you just stop before it is red.

The license plate covers, if not explicitly illegal, are probably illegal in nearly every state because they make it impossible to be able to read the plate from the distance required by law.

A novel concept.

MEH for all you who don't want to sneak by at lights that you arent sure of be my guest

but the last thing i want going through a foreign town is wondering if the yellow will turn over in 3 seconds or 5 and getting a ticket over it

They exist, and they work. A guy who works in my building has one. From directly behind his car, you can read it fine. If you go off to the side, you can't read all the plate. If you're right behind it looking down, you can't read it. Since the cameras are usually above and to the side of an intersection, it wouldn't be able to read it.

In that case, just assume 5.

They are very illegeal, and I don't know about here but in Britain their cameras are advanced enough to see through them and detect you have one so you get a double violation. The only way to get around it is to black it out enough that even a person couldn't see it, but then that would get you pulled over by the cops in a few moments.

Why dont you make a device so at the flip of a switch your plate goes up into the car and then flip it again to drop it back into view?

This reminds me of that Iroc Camaro guy talking about how he can get out of tickets on that radio show
