How to properly apply Plate Blocker Applying Plate Blocker is a simple process, but drips and uneven coverage can be avoided if you take your time and know what you're doing. Here are some general tips to make sure you get maximum effectiveness.

Work in a well ventilated area
Outside is best. Try to work out of direct sunlight and wait for a day that isn't too windy to prevent dirt and debris from blowing onto the wet surface. If you need to apply Plate Blocker inside, open your doors and windows and cover every visible surface to prevent accidental overspray.

Cover up any exposed areas
Use newspaper or drop cloths to block everything you don't want to get covered. You'd be surprised how far aerosol spray will travel. If you're not careful, you'll find a light coating of paint on everything around you.

Wear a mask and gloves
Inhaling aerosol spray isn't very pleasant (and usually not healthy), so it is a good idea to wear a mask. Throw on a pair of disposable gloves if you don't want to get spray on your hands.

Prep your surface
To get nice, smooth coverage it is essential to start with a clean surface. Remove any dirt or dust with a residue-free cleaning solution and make sure your license plate's surface is completely dry before applying Plate Blocker.

Shake well before using
As with any aerosol product, it is very important to shake the can really well before using and also throughout the application.

Don't spray too close or too much
Test the nozzle on your drop cloth or another item first. Sometimes, nozzles can sputter a bit and need a spray or two to get going. Spray 6 to 8 inches away from your surface and do a thin, even coat while moving the can in a sweeping motion from side to side. Several thin coats will look much better than one thick coat and will help prevent drips.

Let it dry thoroughly
Be patient and let your license plate's surface dry for as long as the can suggests before applying additional coats. Before reinstalling on your vehicle, be sure your license plate is completely dry (usually at least a few hours).

No more red light camera tickets

The vast majority of speed cameras and red light cameras employ a strong light flash - day or night - to photograph the license plate on your car.

Plate Blocker's specially-engineered formula produces a high gloss when sprayed on your license plate that reflects the flash back toward the camera. This results in an overexposed image of your license plate, rendering your plate number unreadable in the picture. With Plate Blocker, your license plate is virtually invisible to traffic cameras yet completely visible to the naked eye.

Why you need it: Red-light cameras malfunction

CLEVELAND -- One of Cleveland's red-light cameras went on the blink at one of the city's busiest intersections, adding fuel to the fire for drivers who already don't like the cameras. The camera that malfunctioned was located at East 30th Street and Carnegie Avenue, and drivers wondered if they'd get a $100 ticket for doing nothing wrong.

Thousands of motorists pass through the intersection every day, and most, if not all of them, were obeying the law when the camera took their picture, something the cameras are supposed to do when a motorist runs a red light. But when it malfunctioned, even when the traffic light was green or at a complete standstill, the cameras still flashed. It got to the point where you could time the flash every 15 seconds, then every 10 seconds.
