    Default Super Protector Cover? Obvious?

    I was thinking about purchasing a super protector license plate cover but from specific angles its mad to create a "foil" cover I guess to ruin the photo. But would this look suspicious to an officer unit behind me in the other lanes?

    That's the same thing that I was worried about when I used mine.
    Mine was specifically designed for high mount camera's but you could also see a foiling affect from the side.
    This would probably be a bad experience if a LEO was behind or beside you.
    I took it off when fast track at the bridge got my plate anyway.
    Supposedly it only works if your plate was flashed and I don't think that mine was.
    I suppose that it is only good for red light camera's or photo radar.
    If I tried this again I would go with the new flash back unit.
    Roy has them in stock now.

    So far i've had no problems with it on. i've had several encounters with LEO's behind and to the side passing me, and so far no problems.
    One encounter was on an open strtetch of highway with DPS slowly coming up the left lane next to me. he passed and kept going.

    Here in AZ anyway it seems that most LEOs are publicly opposed to photo radar since it's a way to save money by not hiring more cops. So I think most would be cool with the plate covers.

    One catch: they do get half your plate. So let's say I have a cover and they snap half my plate. What they'll now do is pull up every black S500 with a male driver and if only one comes up then they know it's me and mail out the ticket. So be careful still.

    I think there is room for reasonable doubt if that happend.

    I agree, and besides this is just added insurance against tickets anyway, my detector always picks up the Ka photo radar vans far enough in advance for me to slow down. I get a photo radar ticket maybe once a year thanks to the newer ones with strips in the ground that don't use radar and therefore no detection.
