Speed and red light cameras can be a pain in the ass, even if you don't speed or run red lights. So many have been known to be wrong, and fighting the fines is often an uphill battle. There are plenty of products out there that will block your license plate, with varying effectiveness, some legal, many not. In most countries, you're not allowed to do anything to your license plate, so for example putting Vaseline on them is illegal.

But Jonathan Dandrow came up with a novel idea to thwart authorities from making expensive photos of your ride. Although he's aiming it at the car market, this is a product that can be adapted to motorcycle.

His idea came when he noticed that many cameras pick up the infrared light from a TV remote. Using that principle, he's made a prototype license plate holder, that has a light sensor that will detect of camera flash (like many camera flashes that can be slaves to each other by using the flash light from the master). Once it detects a flash, it fires its own 2 xenon flashes mounted to the side of the license plate. The two flashes over-illuminate the license plate, making it overexposed to the radar camera.

NoPhoto Plate Blocker

The end result? A white license plate with an unreadable number. Effective and legal, since you've not done anything to the license plate. Of course it'll not stop the authorities to change the law in the future, but for now, you'll be safe.

You can't buy the product just yet. Jonathan needs money to finish his product and bring it into production. He's looking at crowd-funding through Indiegogo. He's looking at raising $80,000 to finish his license plate blocker, called NoPhoto Open NoPhoto link in a new window.

Interested? Give him a hand by giving him some money to finish the product.
