Actually Jonno that might be a good idea, and a real money maker. I wonder
if one of those welding helmet thingos that react to the flash VERY quickly
could be used - eg cover the number plate with the normally clear glass.
When the speed camera flashes it would turn dark making the number plate
unphotographical (hey! I think I invented a new word)
Wonder whether it would work
David - still having fun with ideas
A simple synchro flash unit you can buy, will do this.It would have to
be set up properly though and is not guaranteed to work as you want.
Of course you wouldn't want to go speeding in the first place as its
Though, punishment doesn't fit the crime the crime these days,
especially in Victoria, with a small variation attracting a fine of some
$130 while in other states it is much less. 5% variation.
Safer drivers being targeted. I always thought minor speed variations
allowed you to pass safely not as is happening now.
Re RADAR target generators:
For some reason Silicon chip wasn't interested when I mentioned it.
Flash is being phased out (not at night) due to the fact it could be
used to trigger a photo flash. Which is what some smart operators have
done. It makes it easier of course to over expose film type cameras,
but I dont know how it would go for digital type cameras.
But I do have the circuit for a radar detection and false target
generator. Sends out a false speed and overwhelms the camera.
For testing of radar accuracy only of course. (Legal for this only)
As it uses a radar detector for trigger, it is illegal.
Is getting crazier and crazier in Australia. Its sad to read GPS is now
being banned in Swiss land if it incorporated with a warning for fixed
camera sites. Multinova speed camera manufacturers interference I reckon
(they make them there)
As they do not detect moveable RADAR they merely make the drivers aware
of their responsibility near these areas, which I hope would be the
idea. Make them slow down. A compliant driver is safer than a non
compliant driver. Why the ban? Couldn't be revenue(shudder) could it?
Circuit available on request.
