Safeplate Protects Drivers From the Flash of Speed Cameras

Share Article

Motorists are becoming more and more frustrated by the ever increasing number of so called 'safety devices' on our roads. According to press reports, 80% of these devices are illegally sited. Ministry of Transport guidelines state that the cameras should only be placed near schools and accident black-spots. In fact Sir John Stevens (ex-metropolitan Police Commissioner) was quoted as saying "I don't approve of using speed cameras as money making devices. The public have a right to defend themselves."

Research has shown that of the 32 million road users in the UK, 8 million have 3 points on their licence, 2 million have 6 points. 1.5 million drivers have 9 points on their licence: one more offence for these unfortunate motorists and they can be banned for up to 4 years. Also, as importantly, insurance premiums are greatly increased for drivers who have points on their licence.

Over 1.5 million drivers have been banned from driving since the introduction of Gatso speed cameras. The impact of losing the right to drive is for most people not insignificant. It can disrupt an entire lifestyle and/or livelihood. For example, without the ability to drive a car how would most people get to work? How would they get the kids to school? How would they get to the supermarket?

Safeplate is a clear undetectable spray that renders number plates unreadable by the cameras. The manufacturers of Safeplate, Oxford Scientific Developments Ltd, have designed the product not to encourage speeding; rather, it is designed to help motorists who have strayed marginally over the limit. If most people were honest thay would admit to having drifted over the speed limit occasionally? A moment's lack of concentration and law abiding citizens become criminals, with increased insurance premiums and points that remain on their licence for four years.
