Automated traffic enforcement cameras are sending tickets to drivers at a record pace, but traffic accidents have gone up, not down as predicted when the system was installed.

A recent report in the Colorado Avalanche revealed that a system of red light cameras in Ft. Collins issued 64 percent more citations, but the citations did nothing to reduce accidents. The Coloradoan newspaper reported an increase in accidents of 83 percent at the same intersection.

At another intersection in Ft. Collins a different approach was taken. The time before the yellow light turns to red was lengthened by one second. The number of citations issued by the red light camera dropped by more than 60 percent, and the number of accidents at the intersection dropped 57 percent, according to the Colorado Avalanche.

"Most drivers are good people who want to obey the law. If cities give them enough time to either stop or clear the intersection they will. But as long as cities use short yellow lights to generate more revenue through increased tickets, motorists will resort to PhotoBlocker spray to protect themselves," said Joe Scott, from PhantomPlate, Inc.

"The red-light cameras just don't work as advertised. Thousands of innocent drivers are getting tickets they do not deserve," said Scott. "The red light cameras actually lead to an increase in rear-end accidents as drivers slam on their brakes to avoid citations. Speed cameras are inaccurate and regularly ticket drivers who were below the speed limit."

News reports from all around the nation support the claims made by Scott. His company makes PhotoBlocker (tm), a spray used by more and more drivers as a form of protection against unjust tickets. Brisk sales of the spray indicate that a growing number of motorists are trying to protect themselves from a system that is unfair, and does not work.

PhotoBlocker (tm) is a simple aerosol spray that when applied to a license plate does not in any way alter the appearance of the plate to the naked eye, but the flash picture from a red-light camera or speed camera makes the number on the plate unreadable.

"When the yellow-light cycle is too short it doesn't allow drivers time to clear the area. Those drivers are law-abiding citizens who are victims of a system designed to maximize revenue, not reduce accidents. They did nothing wrong. So now they are using PhotoBlocker spray to prevent unjust tickets," said Scott.

A study by the Texas Transportation Institute reported that adding an extra second of yellow light time can cut accidents by 40 percent or more.

"Drivers are tired of getting tickets they do not deserve. The cost in time and money to defend themselves is excessive, so they would rather use PhotoBlocker (tm) spray to save money by preventing the unjust tickets. We want our roads to be safe, and we do not encourage anyone to break the law. But we know how frustrating it is to get a ticket you do not deserve," explained Scott.

Incidents reported in the media increase the demand for cans of PhotoBlocker (tm) spray. The company reports sales of over 350,000 cans protecting over 1 million vehicles in 23 countries.
"We get calls, e-mails and letters from many professionals who are very happy with the effectiveness of PhotoBlocker spray. Journalists, doctors, lawyers, firefighters, teachers, judges and police officers themselves have resorted to using PhotoBlocker spray to avoid entrapment," said Scott.
