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.
