Q.
Is this product legal?

A. redlightcrossYES. The law in most countries requires your license to be legible to the naked eye. PhotoBlockertm/Photostopper Spray is a high gloss, clear, reflective spray that is undetectable. It causes no distortion nor does it obstruct your license plate’s view.
YOUR LICENSE PLATE WILL BE VISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE.
Besides, no one will even know you have it on. It only fools the cameras.

Q. Can the police enhance the photo to read my plate number after it is overexposed due to PhotoBlocker/Photostopper?
A.
The answer is NO they can not. If the positive image is illegible, the negative image will be EXACTLY as illegible. Merely looking at the negative image cannot improve the legibility of a license plate. If you can't see the faint dark letters in the positive image, then you won't see them any better as faint white letters in the negative, or vice-versa .There are certainly ways to enhance the contrast to try to amplify and clarify subtle gradations, but they have nothing at all to do with checking the negatives.

  Additionally, if they tamper with the picture, then that evidence is not admissible in the court of law. As a result any photo-radar image that is illegible will be discarded. They will not spend time and money to enhance a poor quality image.

Q. What about License plate covers with "adjustable" lens?
A.Cheap covers These are ordinary bubble covers with a light bending lens taped to the inside. As soon as water contacts the lens it fills in all spaces in the lens & it doesn't work! It may as well be just a clear cover. Plus it is stuck on with cheap tape & will fall off & you are left with a plain old bubble cover that won't. It may as well be just a clear cover. Plus it is stuck on with cheap tape & will fall off & you are left with a plain old bubble cover that won't do anything except maybe protect your license plate from rock chips.

 

 

Q. I see that other companies sell plastic covers that are gray or-brown in color, and claim to work like a polarizer? What about these?

A. WARNING: This type of cover is illegal to have on your car in most states/provinces in North America and other countries because they obstruct view of the license plate from any angle. These covers are highly visible and can get you an expensive ticket for "Obstruction of license plate numbers". We strongly recommend that you do NOT use them.

Q. Why don't you recommend using a "flash buster" or other flash-back device for beating photo radar (a device which sits over the license plate and has a small flash built in, which flashes to overexpose the photo when hit with photo radar flash)?

A. We do NOT recommend these products for very good reasons, including:
a)    Photo radar does not need to use flash on bright sunny days and the product will not work.
b)    They have to be hard-wired into your car, which is a problem.
c)    They are very expensive!

Q. How many plates can I do with one can of PhotoBlocker/Photostopper Spray can?
A. One spray can will do 3-4 US/Canadian size plates and 2-3 European size number plates.

Q. How many coats should I apply?
A. The thicker the coating the better the result. At a minimum 4-5 coats.
