    Default front plate solution? angle plate slightly down (or up)

    been looking for a solution for MD.

    wondering if that will work?

    Most likely not since almost all state plates are retroreflective. They'll reflect light regardless of the angle that it hits in from.

    I was having the same problem in Texas. I got a CR8APL8 made for my front end. It won't pass close inspection but from a distance it looks legal. More importantly it's made of light molded plastic so it's non reflective.

    I ordered on-line and got my plate in a week. I would post pix but that would defeat the purpose of blurring out my plate number.

    can you post a sideshot or a highly angled shot so i can see what the surface looks like? an angled shot should still make the plate illegible.

    It's been my experience that you can make an improvement by pitching the plate forward a bit. Laser likes perpendicular surfaces for maximum reflectivity. By slightly angling the plate (I prefer downward) you will, indeed, reduce the reflection back to the laser gun.
