What should I do if I own personalized license plates?
For the best protection, you should avoid the use of personalized
license plates or shiny/chrome frames on the front of your vehicle, as you needlessly
increase your visibility/susceptibility to police lidar.
Its difficult enough to defeat photo radar cameras,
lidar cameras, or red light cameras, no need to make it any easier for them. If you really
desire to use personalized plate frames, you should at least use a
VEILed license plate cover. You can purchase inexpensive clear plastic
license plate covers from an automotive retail center and then apply the VEIL license plate spray/coating
directly to the covers with the provided brushes.
They typically run about $5.
Furthermore, you should not use highly reflective or metallic frames and if
you prefer to, apply VEIL - not as a spray, but as a brushed-on coating.
How does a VEILed license plate spray/covers coating perform?
VEIL works by significantly reducing the reflection that occurs
from today's high-tech retro-reflective license plates.
These kinds of license plates effectively magnify the light that a police laser or photo lidar gun looks for. It is essential that VEIL
(more a coating than a spray) is applied to any front-mounted state or personalized license plates to derive
any real protection regardless of whether or not the other targeted sections of the vehicle
are treated. Craig Peterson of RadarTest.com actually demonstrated the significance of the role
plates play to your targetability with police laser.
In areas where the use of a cover is prohibited, VEIL can directly applied
to the plate. In these cases, it will appear darker.
VEIL defeats laser by significantly
reducing reflection and thus the overall laser visual
signature by stealth. Since VEIL doesn't attempt to overwhelm
incoming laser - simply eliminate it - it can not nor will not ever
produce a jamming code on any police laser gun!
Your vehicle will simply be much harder to successfully target and get a
laser speed reading.
Will VEILed covers defeat red light or photo radar cameras?
VEIL is a police lidar & photolidar countermeasure which will provide
protection from photolidar camera enforcement and is not specifically
designed to defeat photoradar or red light camera technology, however:
For those of you seeking
to protect yourselves from other forms of enforcement, you should consider
using VEIL be in combination with covers specifically
designed to defeat these other technologies.
One resource online that provides a special combination packaged deal of
VEIL and a Laser Shield that works well together against photolidar.
