    Default photo stopper + veil

    I was wondering if I coated a license plate cover with veil, then coated my plate with photo stopper, would the veil conflict with the photostopper?

    Default veil/photoblocker

    i was just thinking,you know that photoblocker products distort the picture making it impossible to read the number(hopefully).well on the one ive bought but not used yet it claims that its effective on flash photography and red light flash.red light flash i was thinking is infra red if its like the 'trevelo'brand fixed cameras which shoot you from the front as you pass over a rumble strip(no radar emitted out)here in the uk.my point is this- would it bend/distort the laser from rebounding back to a cop off the front plate and do anything usefull?.
    any scientists out there with a answer? :?:

    Well, there are two kinds of products out there, and it sounds like you're talking about both. One, the license plate cover, works by bending/distorting the image so that your number can not be read. It does not do anything to prevent a speed measurement but you (ideally) don't receive a ticket in the mail because they have a picture of a speeding car that they can't identify. The other product, the spray-on photo blocker, works by amplifying the effect of the flash in an attempt to over-expose the image and obscure your tag number. Again, this does nothing to prevent the reading.

    I would expect the license plate cover to have no effect on a laser speed measurement by itself. I say this because it has no anti-reflective properties that I am aware of that would dininish the laser return. The spray-on photo blocker might actually increase the laser return, thereby making your vehicle easier to track. It is, after all, designed to reflect more light than a normal license plate.

    Since you´re a Brit you might as well check out http://www.ukspeedtraps.co.uk - the site doesn´t sell anything so I´m sure Roy won´t mind.

    Here's a thought and it may not be a good one.

    Coat the inside of the plate cover with VEIL and leave the outside alone?

    My only concern here is if this other plate is expecially reflective [for the flash] it will also likely reflect laser making the plate underneath less of an issue and therefor may still not provide adequate protection against laser.
