    still looking for the real deal, not some POS box with just enough parts to light up a diode on the front that costs a couple of hundred bucks

    • There was only 1 person that ever came close in making something like this and it was a dentist here in Phoenix. Shortly after we tested the unit and found it to be successful they started installing video cameras along side the photo cameras which of course messed that plan up.

    It promised so much when it was initially announced, but delivered so little by the time it was actually
    released. So now, the challenging aspect here
    is that if you search the web you’ll reveal thousands of results.
    Sega Touring Car Championship was a polarizing game due to what some considered
    its twitchy handling and choppy frame rate.

    This device was priced at about $350 and I decided not to risk purchase, as I was skeptical it worked. I’m glad I didn’t. I was initially checking into because of red light cameras in Oak Ridge, Tn that were taking photos of cars turning right on red and mailing tickets in 2011. I did some research and learned that turning right on red is not against the law in Tennessee. I ignored several ticket mailings from a private company and nothing ever came of it. I understand the red light cameras in Oak Ridge have since been removed but the speed cameras remain, especially around a school zone near the police dept.

    This approach of using blinding-light countermeasures can have some results with a home-design/implementation. I took an old fog light from one of my previous cars, that had a 55 watt halogen bulb in it, mounted it over the rear license plate of my ’99 Mustang GT. Then I turned it on, took pictures at various intervals with a Nikon D40. It does indeed work to some degree and this was only a 55 watt bulb. Now if you are standing right behind it, it won’t have much of an effect. At distances of say, 20 feet, the photo image begins to blur and at 40 feet and beyond it blurs several of the license plate characters to the point of being indistinguishable-which is the objective. It seems to be more effective at night. The question each driver/hacker must ask themselves is what the distance of the camera is from the photographed vehicle. If it is at least 20 feet or more, you have a valid chance of defeating it. It is by no means automatic. So install a toggle switch on your console somewhere. Anytime you go through a yellow light, just reach down, flip it on as a precaution. Then, once safely through the intersection, flip it back off. If a cop ever asks what it is, either say you don’t know because you bought the car used OR say it’s a backup light and you could not see well while backing up at night. ndThe fog light I used was fairly bulky, round, with a black surround. If you use those fog lights that are narrow, like the edge of a cassette case, it will no doubt be more stealthy. I suggest trying a 100 watt halogen bulb and it might obscure the license plate characters at even less than 20 feet. This approach is cheap and effective. Do not leave it on all the time or the wrong people might see it and start asking questions. Good luck and be safe out there!

    Hello, I believe your blog might be having internet browser
    compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your web site in Safari,
    it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some
    overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, excellent website!
