How is this a passive countermeasure?

This is a funny business and a flat trick for sure but depends on how you would look at it. If a leaf accidentally has fell and stuck to someone's LP, then you know nothing, couldnt do anything and it was a mere accident of nature. :) If ever you have to comment some radar photo of your car.

Obscure LPN with leaves. Leaves "fall off" while being pulled over for obstructed LPN.

Yes. Also I believe it could be useful mainly at night when someone is driving through some unfamiliar area and get caught from a camera, whatever that may be. The remote may release leaves to fall down from their magnet if some critical situation occurs. Photo radar pictures also should become unusable.

Those are the most unconvincing leaves I've ever seen.

And wouldn't you need power applied to that all the time? If you park and turn it off, fakey leaf falls off? I wouldn't keep that on a constantly on 12V circuit.

Good point. That would be a great way to drain a battery

Now, if the magnet were set to REPEL said leaves that were already attached without constant power, that could work. :)

Hmmm so a less invasive less obvious plate flipper type idea, you cover things until you need to uncover them then the leaves just "blow off"... Of course once you blow the leaves off you would need to get more leaves...

And a new battery.

I can't believe I've been sitting here, sipping my coffee, brainstorming ways this would work.

If you had a magnet on the opposite side of your plate, it could hold the "leaf" (or other fakey obstruction). Then, press a button to lift the magnet a few millimeters away from the plate surface, then back again. Leaf would fall.

This way, you're not constantly draining power.

Or...

Regular magnet holds "leaf" to your plate.

Turn on electromagnet on the plate's backside to REPEL the magnetized leaf OFF the front of the plate.

Power only used when energized.

Interesting idea although a plate flipper would probably be more practical.
