    Red Light camera detection device

    They are starting to deploy lots of red light cameras here is South FL.
    If you go through a yellow light late or a red light you get a $125 ticket
    in the mail. You could also be stopped by on scene cops and given a reg
    ticket on top of this!

    Fortunately some entrepreneurial genius has come up with
    http://www.gpsangel.com/ a device that warns in advance of
    you coming upon one of these critters.......

    I have nothing to do with this company......just passing along the tip for those who are at risk and may become at risk as the money grubbing cops
    go for more of your money.

    They even have the database available for download to your reg GPS
    device!

    Thanks for the info Tom. They have these cameras all around Europe. Top gear had a show dedicated to tricking these cameras. They showed a spray that you apply to the license plate that makes the plate unreadable to the camera. There is also a license plate cover that does the same thing.

    Most of these sprays and covers don't work according to the blogs I've read. I do know it is illegal to modify license plates in most states. The only thing I've seen is how motocycles put those small plates vertically.......sort of hard for a copper to read as it leaves you at 200mph!

    I watched a mythbusters on this..There is no way to beat the camera's prying eye other than covering your tag completely..

    They even did a high speed blast with a lambo/farrari(can't remember) and every time they got the shot.

    The camera's work with some sort of tech that allows the process to work with only a few of the numbers, the computer can figure the rest out.
