Anybody have experience with the license plate covers (for cars) that are supposed to defeat the photo systems at traffic intersections. Don't get me wrong, I don't make a habit of running red lights, but the yellows in this town are way too short. Many times I end up in the cross walk after slamming on the brakes trying not to run the yellow. Our town is bringing this revenue generator online in a few months and I expect it to make them a lot of money. Just don't want it to be some of my money.

they are ileagal here. they really don't enforce it, but they will give you a ticket or make you take it off if you ever got pulled over.
Best I know they're not illegal here, yet. But the city is looking forward to the revenue generated by the camera tickets. The yellows in this town are so short that it's extremely easy to end up running the red light.

I saw an episode of dateline where they showed cops testing that stuff out and none of it seemed to work. I wouldn't spend the money on it.

Thats from the same guys who made the original turnsignal integrator I believe...I remember seeing that in the pamphlet that came with mine years ago. Their site is flashalert.com . Not going to check if I'm right as I'm too lazy :p

Flip up license plate , working of the exhaust servo motor could be an easy solution ??

Dude- that is a hell of an idea.

If I ever wanted my tag to flip up I'd seriously consider rigging a fastags bracket to the servo.
Like a speed sensitive wing, well rpm controlled anyway. Eliminate drag at higer rpm's.

If you did pull over- "what do you mean my tag was up? it's down now, must be malfunctioning, that is only for use at show- I'll have to tighten it up."

Dudes, wouldnt that mean that your plate would constantly be flapping up and down with the butterfly valve?
I have watched the servo motor under the plastic between the passenger and rider seats, that thing opens and closes when you rev it up!
