    Believe it or not, I read an almost identical story about a different guy a few years ago. It actually sounded like something I could see myself doing, and getting arrested for it.

    There have been a couple of systems for sale that claim to make it difficult to photograph license plates while still appear to make the plate numbers visible. MythBusters tested several if them and they all failed. I wonder what kind of person spends time, money and effort to just to cheat the state of a few dollars and then have to pay a huge fine when they get caught.

    I personally wouldn’t do it to avoid tolls because that’s fraud but I don’t have anything that thwarts red-light cameras because I think they’re fraud too.
