License Plate Frame Foils Irksome Traffic-Light Cameras

(WIRED) Traffic-light tickets have ticked off a gazillion drivers, some of whom have had to fork over $500 for running a light. Now there’s a way for you to throw a monkey wrench into that money-making machine.

Jonathan Dandrow has developed noPhoto, which renders the pix snapped by those revenue-generating robo-cams useless. The technology behind noPhoto is fairly simple. At the top of the gadget, which doubles as a license plate frame, there’s an optical flash trigger that detects the flash of the traffic-light camera. That trigger sets off one or both xenon flashes in the sides of the noPhoto, so when the traffic-light camera opens its shutter, there’s too much light and the picture of your license plate is overexposed. Big Brother can’t read your plate.

Sweet.

The impetus for the noPhoto is two-fold, Dandrow says. On the one hand he just wanted to see if could make something that worked. He’s not an engineer, but he’s always tinkered with car-related gadgets and he loves cameras. NoPhoto combines both interests.

He also thinks red-light cameras are a serious infringement of a drivers’ rights. As Gary Biller, the president of the National Motorists Association, recently wrote in U.S. News and World Report, traffic-light cameras violate “several key tenets of a citizen’s due process rights,” because there is “no certifiable witness to the alleged violation,” and so therefore, “the defendant loses the right to cross-examine his accuser in court.” Many cities are deactivating their cameras, but there are still plenty of them around.

(TLS-) ALL HAIL THE GEEKS!! seriously hackers and geeks rock. One thing to have pride in as a human is our ability to beat tech with better or equal counter tech! If these cameras become a problem in my area I WILL buy one of these just to spit in their face!!

Hmmmmm, pretty sure I could make this cheaper, simpler and just as effective with an 'always on' infrared scheme wired into the 12V license lamp leads.

Plus it wouldn't blind the guy behind you when it goes off at night and cause an accident.
