Cities Seek More Revenue from Traffic Cameras: Drivers Become Defensive

Published: Fri Nov 04 2005

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Reports of cities forced to refund millions because of red light and speed camera errors have not slowed down plans in many cities to increase the number of enforcement cameras.

While cities add more of the cameras in an effort to raise more cash, drivers are finding ways to prevent tickets that are issued in error. Many motorists are using a simple aerosol spray as a defense against the faulty cameras.

Constant reports in the media of tickets issued to innocent drivers, faulty equipment, and the challenges associated with fighting erroneous tickets could be why so many drivers are using PhotoBlocker (tm) spray as self-defense.

Many drivers complain about receiving tickets in error, but the appeal process is so difficult and expensive that most people do not bother to try. Many use PhotoBlocker (tm) spray as an inexpensive way to avoid the next ticket in error.

Vista, Calif. recently decided to add another camera to the four already in the city. The city council is making no secret about the reason for the additional camera – revenue, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Additional cameras have been added recently in Washington, D.C. as well, but a recent Washington Post story revealed that accidents there have dramatically increased, debunking the claim by politicians that the cameras were installed to promote safety rather than add revenue.

The city council in Mesa, Ariz. recently voted to increase the number of red light cameras in that city from 13 to 30 and to add 5 speed cameras. The new combination camera issues tickets for red light violations and speeding.

"People have enough challenges in life, and they do not want traffic tickets they do not deserve. This is one of life's challenge that people can prevent. Because of the high cost in time and money to defend themselves, most people prefer to use PhotoBlocker (tm) spray to prevent 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 Joe Scott of

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 1.5 million vehicles 23 countries. The product is available from many local distributors, retail outlets, and over the Internet at

"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, and judges themselves have resorted to using PhotoBlocker spray to avoid entrapment," said Scott.
