Anyone heard anything good or bad on this product?

I've seen covers that are designed to fit over the plates before, I think they basically had a thin film of see-through plastic that was highly reflective, and at the same time filtered out IR. Trouble was I could never find any that were shaped for euro plates, onlt the US shape!

This spray could be very usefull, if it works that is.....

:rolleyes: Yes, the thought of killing someone without spray on my plates is just too much to bear....

I have it on good authority that there is such a spray that does work, be warned though it only works on the old type Gatsos that use a flash, here in Northamptonshire we only have Truvelos that do not use flash.

Incidentally I have seen a prototype of a number plate that is a hologram, from straight on it reads the correct number, from a slight angle such as the pole height of a speed camera it can read whatever you want or nothing. Cool!!

Ohh sounds interesting! but i bet you can tell it's a hologram though can't you? I mean if your following from behind through bends, and over hills, you must be able to catch a glimpse of the "other" image? Then again I suppose you only need it on the front as most of these cameras are forward facing...

Yes, its clever but not good enough to risk using it. From straight on it looks a bit fuzzy too. I suppose a bit more development and a big dollop of cash will make it better.

Yeah good point! I've done 100+ mph before and although people may have died during that period I'm fairly certain it was a coincidence! ;)

no so you dont get points for a wee 34 :mad: if your doing more than 40 then points is and fine is fair but at least when you get caught at 36ish you were trying to keep your speed down
