  1. > Speed Cameras was a pretty lame Mythbusters episode

    ‘Twas indeed. I particularly cringed at the testing of flash-defeating freaky optical numberplate covers DURING THE DAY, when their whole purpose is to reflect back the direct flash that’s the only source of photographic illumination for speed cameras AT NIGHT.

    Not that most of those things do actually work worth a good God damn, and not that any of them – even the ones that DON’T work – are at all likely to be legal in pretty much any Western nation. That’s not an excuse, though.

    If you want to obfuscate your numberplate, splatter mud on your car. At least then you’ve got plausible deniability.

    (I was amused to see that Discovery’s brand name obfuscation extends to not mentioning that their fast orange car was a Lamborghini. I was almost expecting to see duct tape over the badges with “MYTHBUSTERS SUPERCAR” written on it. 🙂

    I just don’t understand why they didn’t put the lambo on the air strip, it could have actually built up some real speed then. they just needed to find a real drag car for quarter mile. super cars aren’t made to go in straight lines like that.

    Daniel is right. The A#1 way to obscure your plate is good old fashioned mud. I see so many New England drivers with their plates covered by mud or snow, and I am pretty sure that no one cares. Now, if you were driving like an idiot to begin with, maybe that gets added to the ticket when you are pulled over–but I doubt it.
