I got this email, would be interested how true they are:-
"Many laser gun operators aim at the number plate because it reflects the laser
better than other parts of the car. If you tip your number plate so that it is
tipping either upwards or downwards, then the beam will be reflected back either
up in the air or down on the road and hence, no reading!"
- Suppose the plate would need to be at quite a angle to stop the reflection back when shot from a distance away??
"The second tip was that by using powerful headlights (full beam), it is
extremely unlikely that you will get a speed reading registered against your
car. This is because operators are told not to point their lasers at bright
lights, as this can burn out their circuitry! Now, Mike found this idea
hilarious, and I imagine many of my customers would find it quite funny too :-)"
- Surely headlights can't damage a laser gun!! But I've heard that full beam headlights do limit the range of the beam slightly - is this true?
