    [2006] Photo Blocker Spray-is it legal?
    "Description:
    New Invention Helps Drivers Avoid Costly Traffic Tickets!

    Why should I be an affiliate?

    Problem: Red light and speed cameras are ticketing drivers 24/7/365.

    Solution: PhotoBlocker Spray helps drivers avoid getting costly tickets. A proven defense.

    Your Benefit: Guaranteed, high, recurring income.

    Think about it. No one likes to get unjust traffic tickets. Red light and speed cameras are popping up all over the world at an alarming rate. Motorists have paid in excess of $1 Billion dollars in fines to date. The public is in desperate need for an effective product that can provide relief. PhotoBlocker Spray helps motorists avoid traffic camera tickets legally.

    How does PhotoBlocker Spray work?
    Red light & speed cameras use a strong flash to photograph the license plate on your car. Once sprayed on your plate, PhotoBlockers special formula produces a high-powered gloss that reflects the flash back towards the camera. This overexposes the image of your license plate, rendering the picture unreadable. With PhotoBlocker, your license plate is invisible to traffic cameras yet completely legible to the naked eye, making it 100% legal.

    Does it work? Does it sell?
    It works so well that we have sold over 500,000 units. Tests by 5 police departments from around the world and news agencies have concluded the products to be effective. We have been featured in the Washington Post, Washington Times, Daily Mail, Wall Street Journal and on NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC and many more"

    Anybody has idea about this new merchant on CJ? I myself question its legality.

    Some reviews from Amazon.

    "A friend of mine and me bought this and we tried it with a flash and telephoto lens ourselves. At one special angle the flash light was reflected a little off the plate but the number was still clearly readable. Absolutely useless and simply a hoax."

    "The PhotoBlocker Spray DOES NOT WORK!!! I purchased the product last year and just received a speeding ticket. I am normally very careful when it comes to speeding and red lights, but I slipped. I was going 76 km. in a 60 km. speed zone. I saw the camera flash, when I was leaving the intersection, but hoped I wouldn't receive a ticket. I am extremely disappointed with this product and would never recommend it to anyone. I did use the product in the way it was described on the can, but obviously this made no difference. Do not buy this product, it is a complete waste of money!!!"

    "Why are all the reviews with four stars so similar. I mean they all sound the same and none of the reviewers have reviewed more than one item or product. Seems odd to me. The one star reviewer has at least reviewed several products."

    "There is a traffic camera near my office. One of my coworkers blew through the red light and got a ticket in the mail. I don't normally run red lights but I saw this product and thought I'd give it a try. I bought one can last summer and sprayed it on my license plates. I haven't run any red lights since then but the product turned my plates yellow. I live in Maryland and our plates are off-white with dark letters. Several people have seen my plates and thought I was from a different state. In fact, one fellow asked me about the weather in New Jersey. I just spent $40 to get new plates for my two cars. I'm sorry I bought this product."

    "i bought the spray and it turned my plates yellow after a few weeks and i've received two photo tickets so far. I contacted the sellers and got no response. I did a little searching on the net and have found that the same thing has happened to dozens of people accross the country. Also, I went into my local paint shop and found out that the spray is just some type of acrylic spray paint."

    Among other reviews.. I wonder if CJ read them?

    I wouldnt promote it just from the bad reviews.
    Legality might vary by state, like radar detectors. They should guarantee their product, offer to pay your ticket LOL.

    Valentine One Radar Detectors are worth every penny. And they cost 40,000 pennies!

    The full logic mode is even useable in the cities. Most radar detectors drive you crazy if left on in the city.

    i think it's in the "grey area" - technically legal, but a judge would probably somehow still ding you for it

    Hmmm, wonder if I could spray it on the bathroom mirror at night so I can avoid looking at myself in the morning.

    That's what I need when I looked at myself on the bathroom mirror this morning after a long night party.

    Re-think about it. No one likes to get ANY traffic tickets, but if you get caught for speeding or running a Red light, then that traffic ticket won't be a unjust traffic ticket.

    I agree that if I get a speeding ticket, I may feel bad, and that I may try to talk my way out of it, but I would never consider using any cheating device in in my car, in order to avoid the consequences of my mistakes.

    You must remember that a car is just like a weapon, so would you sell silencers in order to deaden the sound of firing a weapon?

    There are a lot of things out there that can be sold legally, but many things that are legally right, can also be morally wrong.

    It's up to you to decide how you want to earn your money. And while it's ok to ask for advice when you're not sure about the the legality of any product, usually your conscience and your guts feelings, have already given you the right answer.

    My first site had a few gambling links on it because there are so many reviews on the web made me believed that this industry is very profitable...need to see some decent money as a new affiliate marketer at that time...so I tried the gambling links. Even after I did a lot of researches on legitimaty of online gambling business and convinced myself that it is ok to post a few links, I still could't sleep well at night. Not saying I didn't make any single penny out of it.
    I finally took them all out of my site.

    Same as the porn sites links.

    There are so many temptations out there, Mr. Sal is right, it all depends on our consciences and our guts feelings.

    I remember seeing it on TV somewhere but can't remember the results. Seems it was not near 100% effective.

    These products are illegal in NY state but I am not sure about any other state but if they are Illegal here they are probably illegal else where.

    Also local news station here did some test with the NYPD and State Police. Stuff didn't work.

    They did the test on the plastic covers and the Spray neither worked. Also in NY you get tickets for the Plastic covers.

    Some states you're not allowed to use radar detectors either but others you can. Glove compartment works good. And the plastic covers I've seen sold in many stores, I guess it depends on what state you're in. And the good ones work well. So I've been told. I don't have any plactic covers but I do have a nice radar detector.

    Radar Detectors, any type of license plate cover AND this spray are all illegal in the State of Virginia, however, if you use the spray ( and there is no guarantee if it works), how will they catch you? I have an idea, don't speed, lol! I am lucky. Since I am married to a cop, if i ever get stopped ( which is RARE anymore) they let me go. Sort of like a "cop" coupon I guess.

    I had a friend try that in NY. Cops gave her a ticket for obstructing the view of her license plate.

    certain police agencies (state, for one) here in NYS are starting to use license plate scanners that work their input against a database of expired plates, etc.

    and it works very well.

    This thread is from July 2006.

    Is this company actually still in business, given all the negatives here and the update from today saying the product is bogus?

    I'm surprised they're still selling it after four years??

    I got about half way through this before noticing it's a 4 year old thread. They're still around though not sure how their sales are these days.
