Different Ways Of Avoiding A Speed Radar Ticket On Your Motorcycle

Getting caught speeding by one of those automatic digital speed radars is no fun, especially when you were out enjoying your motorcycle ride. A few days after the "event" you get a nice photo sent to your home, showing you how fast you were going, and asking you to pay some money to cover the cost of the photo. And since these cameras cost a lot of money, you can expect to pay a hefty amount of money. But at least you can frame the photo and hang it up the wall.

So not exactly fun. One way of avoiding to pay of expensive photos of you on your motorcycle is not to ride fast. Logical and obvious, but let us face it; it is not exactly fun, and at times you just can't help yourself. So here are a few ways how you can escape getting fined. Mind you, none of these methods are legal, so if you get caught, it is a double whammy...

Method 1 - Wheelie

Radar Foiling

By doing a wheelie in front of the camera, your number plate dips down and becomes very difficult to photograph. But you need to know where the camera is, and when it takes the famous photo.

Method 2 - Covering Your License Plate

Another way is to hide your license plate. You can of course buy one of those photo blocker sprays, but it does mean that you need to spray often enough (rain will make it the spray go away) and not all sprays actually work. No, the other way involves a bit of gymnastics; move one of your foot over the license plate, covering it from the camera.

Of course if you are height challenged, this might be more problematic, and you really need to be able to keep that bike upright when doing it.

Method 3 - Going Into The Camera

A speed radar that makes pretty photos will not bother you if you ride towards the camera. Most countries do not have license plates in the front of the bike, so you are safe enough.

You can even let your imagination run wild when going towards a speed camera. Of course this will not help you if the local authorities recognize you. Then you might face more trouble.

Method 4 - Putting Your Motorcycle Sideways

This method is meant for those that really do not want to be photographed and are professional enough to do this. When you bike is sideways, the camera will not be able to identify your license plate. The computers run software that reads a plate, distinguishing numbers and letters. A license plate that is sideways can not be recognized by the computer.

Of course you can only do this once, since your bike is ruined. But at least you have escaped the fine.

So in the end, you are better off behaving and riding at the speed limit.
