“Red-light cameras are a money-making enterprise for the cities that deploy them,” - Gary Biller, the president of the NMA
How many of you have sped through an intersection only to see a white flash in your rear-view mirror?
If you’ve received a dreaded red-light ticket in the mail, you may be able to put your mind at ease with noPhoto.
The new invention by Jonathan Dandrow, claims to be able to stop red light cameras from taking usable pictures of motorists’ plates.
How does it work? Quite simple actually: the optical trigger detects the flash of the camera as it surreptitiously snaps the license plates of cars caught running a red light. The trigger in turn sets off the xenon flashes, overexposing the picture of the plate.
The device is currently in the prototype stage. Dandrow’s using Indiegogo to try to raise $80,000 in funding in order to get the device certified. He hopes to sell the noPhoto for $350 each.
