Cameras posted at traffic lights are generating revenues for the city of Providence, but are the roads getting safer? Critics contend that rear-end collisions go up when red light cameras are present. It’s not a stretch to think that some drivers are so fearful of expensive tickets that they will slam on their brakes.
We recently received an e-mail about a product, called Photoblocker, which is pitched as a pre-emptive strike. The $30 spray is applied to license tags, and although invisible to the naked eye, the clear haze supposedly makes it impossible for the radar flash to read the license. We’re curious if any of our readers have had experience with this product.
The purveyors, of course, say the goal is not to encourage unlawful driving, but to promote righteous behavior.
