Neat for sure but wouldn’t do you any good.

If the cam uses visible flash at night (not invisible IR flash) with an IR cut filter, it wont do anything (I have the poliscan pictures and ticket to proove it)

I was running an OnTrack IR InvisiPlate with IR LEDS above the plate (sunflexzone)

🤔😳 Interesting but as the other posts say probably not 🚫 if the police cameras are using visible light to read the plates.
Hopefully the guy tried out and see if he gets a ticket keep us posted,..😁😁🏎️🏎️🏎️🏎️

Even if you provide your own white flash (a la NoPhoto), they still generally have the capability to adjust levels so they can read otherwise blown out photos. And the materials and design of plates from state to state can be different enough to make designing a single solution difficult, much less for all photo systems as well. It would be a neat challenge for someone to overcome if they could figure it out. Shoot light AT the plat itself? Or would retroreflective coatings make that useless? Use high intensity LEDs for both white light and IR transmission? Or would it not matter because they can’t be strong enough (and remain viably affordable) to get the job done? Lots of stuff to deal with there.
