Get some of that clear spray paint that refracts light from the flash. Although, I don't think that will help you during the day.

In a near by town they installed this LED speed limit sign that has a strobe light on it. When you exceed the speed limit it flashes the strobe light. I just about **** myself when it started flashing. Thankfully there is no camera, but I was afraid to speed at all for about a week.

Mark, this will bother you more: in the district i hear the limit is 11mph over for tickets. one mph slower and you would have been safe. heh.

The spray on stuff does not work. Mythbusters did a show on plate concealment measures. The only one that seemed to work was the one that refracted the light (?). Simple tinted covers didn't work, either.

i enjoy the ones that monitor speed so that they can lower it due to all the dumbasses that slow down when they see their speed in large lights, i light it up until it blinks itself an ulcer

where do they mount the speed camera's? stoplights or random poles on the side of the road?

Luckily I've never seen a speed camera in WI. Also, I'm the guy that sees how fast I can go by the time I hit the sign...which was right outside of where I worked last summer, so I got to do it a lot . I've heard that you pretty much can't speed anywhere near a city in England because of all the damn cameras. Wonder how Top Gear gets away with all their stuff.

Ha, wait until they implement the latest revenue bucket that has just been installed here. There is a set of cameras beside the road, you drive past, they take a picture of the rear of your car/truck/motor cycle. A few Km/Miles down the road there is another set of cameras. They take your photo and compute how long it took for you to travel between the two points. If your time beween the two point was too short you will recieve a fine in the mail for speeding. I assume they can only fine you on the average speed, rather than the top speed you may have reached. It forces you to keep your average speed within reason, rather speeding up and then slowing down was you would do with the older type of cameras.
