Q: What is "The Photo Fin"?
A: The Photo Fin TM is a new Patent Pending license plate attachment designed to thwart, alter and skew the results of photo radar cameras.
The Photo Fin is a perpendicularly mounted, mirror-like stainless steel license plate attachment designed to resemble a predatory shark fin. The Photo Fin is a functional, hip, "statement-making", personal privacy enhancing novelty automotive device. The must have "Pimp Your Ride" accessory.
Q: How does "The Photo Fin" work?
A: The Photo Fin is designed to "operate" at an angle 10 degrees or greater. (Most photo radar cameras are mounted or parked at 22 degrees or greater.)
Unlike plastic transparent license plate covers, The Photo Fin is opaque, and a photo radar camera cannot "see thru" the device. The Photo Fin then effectively "blocks" one letter or number, while at the same time, due to the mirror-like reflectivity, serves to "alter" the photographed license plate by reflecting the letter or number nearest where The Photo Fin is mounted. The results - an "altered" photograph of your license plate.
Q: What are the benefits of The Photo Fin?
A: The Photo Fin protects your rights and your personal privacy. Any jurisdiction that employs photo radar cameras, assumes you are "guilty", without due process, simply because you own a vehicle that triggered a photograph, whether you were the driver or not.
The Photo Fin alters what a photo radar camera "sees" and as a result cannot issue a citation, thereby leaving the enforcement to the true professionals Ė trained, intelligent, reasoning human officers, capable of making decisions regarding reasonable and prudent operation, traffic flow and volume, road conditions, weather, potential hazards and safety.
Q: Is The Photo Fin effective?
A: The Photo Fin is extremely effective as long as the photo radar camera is 10 degrees or greater off center. (Remember, speed and distance traveled will affect at what angle the photograph is ultimately taken.)
Because The Photo Fin is both solid and highly reflective, itís dual functionality of both "blocking" and "altering" license plate letters and numbers, makes it one of the most effective photo radar deterrents on the market today.
Q: Is The Photo Fin legal?
A: Each jurisdiction is different, and it is your responsibility to determine The Photo Finís legal status based on where you live and drive.
However, due to the simple design and non-altering appearance of a license plate when viewed directly from behind, most jurisdictions have not as yet addressed how a photo radar camera "sees" your license plate and as such may be viewed as legal, by default. Consult with your own counsel to determine appropriateness and legality in your area. Nothing contained herein is intended as legal advice. With The Photo Fin mounted properly, your license plate is 100% visible, legible and readable by a human officer and / or dash-cam when viewed directly from behind. As an aside, The Photo Fin is easily removable if requested to do so by a police officer. It should also be noted, that in most cases, fines for license plate violations are substantially lower than speeding violations and rarely include "points" against your license. The Photo Fin personal privacy license plate attachment is a novelty accessory and not intended to encourage traffic law violations, speeding or unsafe driving.
