Smart License Plate Ruins Traffic Camera Photos

Smart License Plate Ruins Traffic Camera Photos
Design

The 'noPhoto' prevents the cameras from capturing your license plate number using sensors and a bright flash to overexpose the image.

The ‘noPhoto‘ is a smart license plate that prevents traffic cameras from capturing your information. Developed by Jonathan Dandrow’s Ohio-based business, noLimits Enterprises, the device is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo.

Smart License Plate Foils Traffic Camera Photographs

Sensors on the license plate detect a flash from the traffic cameras, immediately sending out two bright flashes to overexpose the camera’s image and prevent a readable picture from being taken so you avoid getting a ticket in the mail. According to Boing Boing, Dandrow believes traffic cameras are unconstitutional and cause more accidents than they prevent. He also writes some of the company’s other beliefs:

We believe that traffic enforcement should be handled domestically by our own police force, not by big-business, multi-national private companies based overseas, and that safety should be the foremost concern of traffic programs – not revenue.  We believe that just because you drive on public roads, private companies do not have the right to store your personal information in databases overseas.
