Number Plate Spray

Just wondered if anybody has had any experience with the number plate spray that flashes out speed and red light camera flashes. I had a reflector plate, but got nabbed by the HWP because they could see the thing. Had a radar detector, they are still legal in WA but useless against hand held radar. Anyway before I put my faith in a reflector spray, any info. I'm not into excessive speeding or dangerous driving, but I'm also not into lining the Govt coffers because I went 6 - 10 ks over their decided speed limit.

A good radar detector will always work.

Re: Number Plate Spray

I now someone, who knows someone, who has a photographers slave flash unit mounted on the rear of his motorcycle. When the speed camera flashes, the slave flash picks-up the flash and flashes back (speed of light), all the speed camera photographs is a very, very bright light. The slave flash unit sits above/below the number plate/s.

I am led to believe he told someone, who told someone it works quite well with flash speed cameras...

Re: Number Plate Spray


Lo and behold in todays Western Australian there is a story interviewing te importer of the plate spray and the Police.
The police said they were not seeking a ban because they had tested it but it didn't work, then in the next breath said it would be irresponsible for the public to use the spray.
The importer said that at least 3 good coverings were required to saturate the number plate.
The media, being how they are, decided to run there own test according to the importers instructions.
Result, a colour photo on page 5 WITH THE FIRST AND SECOND NUMBERS BARELY LEGIBLE AND THE OTHER SIX COMPLETELY BLOCKED OUT.
