I read about that in AutoBild magazine. It doesn't work... they've tested
it. And neither do those anti-flash license plate covers, or (really) hair
spray on your 'plates. And they've tested a gadget that senses the flash
and gives an immediate 'anti-flash' that should overpower the camera.
Doesn't work either.
I guess we're back to looking for those !@#$% cameras along the road side
and stepping on the brakes... or keeping to the speed limit.
Still waiting for my ticket to arrive (145kph in a 120kph zone),

I think animal testing is a terrible idea;
they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
