You Can Make Your Garmin, TomTom, Magellan and Other GPS Early Warning Devices

There is a new program out that you can plug into any, Garmin, TomTom or Magellan GPS that will make it an early warning device for traffic cameras and speed traps. You simply have to download the Data base of locations direct to your GPS and it will tell you when you are coming up on a Camera or Speed Trap. No more surprises because now you will know well before hand if a ticket threat is coming up. This is much better then the old, depending on on coming traffic flashing their lights at you. The program works beautifully with most major brands such as Garmin, TomTom and Magellan to name a few. The police even like the idea behind this because it will help prevent more accidents. Lets face it, the only reason responsible drivers get tickets is because of an error in judgement. Maybe they didn't realise how fast they are going or they just spaced out. Now your GPS is not only going to help you get to where you are going but, it will improve your safety too.

California Makes Photoblocker Illegal










Below is the link to the full bill

Basically the state of California is losing money and not happy. So now Photoblocker or any other device used to impair or obstructs the reading or recognition of a license plate by a remote emission sensing device is illegal. Selling these products in California will get you up to a $250.00 fine.

Now the problem with the law, how are they going to know you have used the spray. Solid covers and obvious things of that nature the police can spot right away but the Photoblocker spray is something that will be very hard if not impossible to detect. Are police going to do random tests when they pull people over? This is one of those laws that will make some noise but not really do much to those using Photoeblocker. At the most they may get a few fines if they catch people selling it but other then that, you can just order from another state if you live in California.

2007 Virginia DOT Report Shows Red Light Cameras Increase Accidents

2007 Virginia DOT Report Shows Red Light Cameras Increase AccidentsA new Virginia Department of Transportation study shows accidents increased by nearly a third where red light cameras were used.The Virginia Transportation Research Council today released a report expanding upon earlier research into the safety effects of red light cameras in Virginia. The new study, funded by the Virginia Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration, provided a city-by-city assessment that showed significant increases in the number of injuries and accidents at intersections employing photo enforcement.The change in the frequency of injury accidents varied widely among jurisdictions -- down 5 percent in one but up between 6 and 89 percent in all others. Even within a jurisdiction some intersections fared better than others. In Fairfax County, for example, the total number of crashes increased at every intersection with a camera, except for one -- Route 50 and Fair Ridge. VDOT increased the duration of the yellow light from 4 seconds to 5.5 seconds on August 12, 1998. Research by the Texas Transportation Institute confirmed that longer yellows yield significant accident reductions. Overall, the data in the VTRC report painted a grim picture consistent with prior, independent investigations."The cameras were associated with an increase in total crashes. Arlington and Fairfax County saw significant increases, Falls Church and Vienna saw non significant increases, and Fairfax City saw a nonsignificant decrease."Although it is now widely accepted that red light cameras are associated with increases in the number of rear end collisions, the VTRC report did not solely attribute the overall increase in accidents and injuries to this type of collision. Angle collisions also increased."Cameras were associated with an increase of between 31 percent and 54 percent for rear-end crashes overall," the report found. "The association of the cameras with angle crashes differed among jurisdictions, although a preponderance of test results suggested an increase." Contrary to industry claims, this was not a temporary phenomenon. "The cameras were not associated with a decrease in rear-end crashes over time after the initial increase that followed camera installation," the report found.Red light cameras were authorized in Virginia between 1995 and 2005. After a two year battle with municipal lobbyists and the insurance industry, the Virginia state legislature re-authorized the use of red light cameras. The law took effect July 1. The full text of the study is available in a 1mb PDF file at the source link below.Key Statistic:
Rear End Angle Injury Total
Arlington +139% +53% +89% +65%

Fairfax City +10% -35% -5% -7%

Fairfax County +40% +8% +6% +23%

Falls Church +136% -15% +79% +38%

Vienna +64% -6% +59% +25%

Average +42% +20% +18% +29%

How To Beat Traffic Cameras

You can fight back against these traffic cameras. Photoblocker is a product that is both easy to apply and legal to use. Simply spray it on and your license plate will be invisible to the camera. The company also has an ebook that will tell you what to do if you have already received a camera ticket. Don't take a chance on not just paying the fine but, lets not forget the insurance hike your going to get after that ticket goes through.The $75.00 in the front end is nothing compared to the hundreds of dollars these tickets can cost you with your insurance every year until the ticket finally is off your license. Check out some of the videos below and protect yourself now before you get a camera ticket. I have used photoblocker and it does work. I know I went through a camera light a while back and have yet to get anything in the mail. I also know they send out those tickets pretty quick so they can get there money. It's all a scam so my advise is to protect yourself before its to late.

A Little on How Traffic Cameras Work

Here are a few Videos On how Red Light Cameras work and if they are in fact legal. The last interview in this section is a little long but there are some great points bought up. It's amazing how long this has been going on for and there really doesn't seem to be an end in sight.

Albuquerque Has Made Over 14 Million Dollars Citizens

The City of Albuquerque has made over 14 Million dollars fining its citizens when it has done everything it possible can to jeopardize their safety to entrap its citizens into these fines. It has done everything it can to diminish road safety, increase the number of tickets and accidents through the manipulation of yellow light timing, manipulating slipstreams, and has resulted in an overall increase in the number of accidents at cameraed intersections by 20% since the programs started. (Source: Albuquerque Journal, June 2006, Middle Rio Grande Council of Governments, 2008)

If the city stands to gain money by having an inefficient traffic system, it will ultimately lead to frustrated drivers, vehicles wearing out faster, increased emissions, and yes, increased traffic accidents from vehicles attempting to stay in the slipstream.

Already, normally law abiding citizens are fighting back using reflective coatings and license plate covers on their cars. Some have even resorted to placing fake letters on the plate to obfuscate the plate numbers. Others still, have simply registered their cars under corporations or LLCs to make them impervious to the and makes the program a complete joke. Many cities that have experimented with the Cameras have found them to be a huge boost in revenue. More responsible cities have found they also increase accidents at intersections. Responsible cities and governments have stopped these programs. What makes Albuquerque think its program is any different?
The attitude of city government seems to be to ignore these issues. I suppose as long as the city is making money, it's ok to cause more traffic accidents than we are stopping, right? I think it's difficult to make someone understand something if their job performance and revenue depends on them not understanding it. Let's get our slipstreams in gear and make sure our citizens get the protection and due process they deserve. Impeach Chavez now!
Check out for the company information on the Red light camera program. Isn't it amazing the first thing the website mentions is profitability and offers ZERO safety statistics?
