CALGARY, Alta. — Calgary police are warning drivers that it is illegal to use a new product released in the city, which manufacturers say is a legal way to beat photo radar.
Beat Photo Radar is a spray, which the Calgary-based company claims will make licence plates impossible to detect by photo radar. It is also invisible to the naked eye, the company says.
But Calgary police traffic Insp. Vince Caleffi warns that “Defacing a licence plate in any way is illegal, even with a clear spray. You can’t put anything on your licence plate.”
The new product sells for $39.95 on the company’s Web site.
