Any idea what cosmetic you need to put on your number plate to stop yourself getting caught by a camera? In the News of the World on Sunday it said that "Thousands" of people had been sharing the way to stop being detected over the net but I haven't found it yet - im guessing its hair spray or nail varnish.

If you get caught just explain that you where drunk at the time and couldn't read the speed limit. :D

Black Lipstick (Borrow some froma goth). Use it to change the numbers/letters so they look like other numbers/letters. If you get pulled up by the police, act like you don't know how it got their and blame it on dirt/mud/the old lady you just ran over.

I hate people who speed.

And their secret little cosmetic clubs and flashy light people.
Driving home in a blizzard, doing about 30-35mph on a 40mph road and some prrick behind me is flahsing his fog lights at me.

Yeah, nice one mate.

How about getting one of those GPS things with speed camera detectors?

You can get one of those things that deflect the flash of the camera for your numberplate can't you?

Dunno if they are illegal mind.

Stick a picture of something horrible on your liscence plate. The camera will see it and explode.

Nope, it doesn't work.

That doesn't work either.

Maybe, but it's still not fool-proof to cameras that take piccies of the front of the car or take pictures from different angles.

Have the plates at an angle or cover them in a way that they can be read from straight behind but not from the left.
