How to Reflect the Speed camera's

Does anyone know how to make your number plate's reflect back to the camera's when the flash goes off.

You know something like clear lens over your number plates with a coat of clear or something like that.

Sick of getting done for 3k's over the f%&king limit....

check out this thread My Radar Detector either try sumfin in there or drive like my grandma..if u can't be bothered readin it then try things like a highly reflective sticker or some sort on ya plates...but that only works if a flash go off from the camera..some cameras use infra red i think..and some dont flash in the day..and i can't guarantee that anything will work..so dont blame me if ya get caught

You can get products that do obscure the numberplate. However these are illegal and will result in heavy fines.

Heh a while ago I thought I might get done for my number plate not being legible, so I tried to touch it up with some housepaint. Now when light shines on it there's nothing but a dark blob. Looks fine in the daylight though.

I think it has saved me from a few speed cameras and a red light.

Masking devices are illegal!!!
Some of the cameras are infrared and do not use a flash to illuminate the number plate!!!

it is against the law to obscure your plate in any way, but you could try painting it with clear gloss, putting a lastic cover on and then adding some nice reflectors.

as for risking heavy fines, in WA the fine is $75 and the minimum speeding tocket is $100. on top of that, now that speed cameras are being used asvirtually the only method of law enforcement on the roads, you rarely see a police car. so dont worry, you wont get fined in WA.

Re: How to Reflect the Speed camera's

Theres a product available in the US that you can spray on, and once its dries its not visable to the naked eye, but causes the plate to come out blurred when a picture is taken.

Re: How to Reflect the Speed camera's

Right that's it I'm moving to WA. Both my fines have been from a copper hiding in a bush at night. Yeah I speed, but I'll probably turn into an axe murderer if I have to drive at riculously slow Victorian speed limits.
