Alberta Threehills cruise night saw item to beat photoradar

hay i was at the Three Hills Cruise night and there was this booth that was selling radardetectors and a cover to block photo radar, they sold out of the covers but gave me their card

From the looks of how many people getting them it looks promising. any thoughts, i saw the spray but they said that in Calgary the spray might not work because the city is changing the why the flash works, i dont want the spray just the cover.

mythbusters tried all sorts of things like this and not one worked.

not the biggest fan of theirs but this is one I tend to believe.

so how long have you been selling them?

Hello,
i have seen some of the mythbusters but not one of them tested REAL photoblocker stuff, they used hair spray and tin foil,
can someone link me to teh onw that showes the covers being tested?
i searched youtube and founf many news articals and stories from FOX ABC NBC, ect and mythbustes that show them testing everything but the covers and the spray,

Im with you on Mythbusters i dont belive some of the stuff they say,
i would trust the Action news teams and consumer watch groups like the tow youtube videos showing that the sprays DO work.

who really knows im going to get the cover and the spray from that first site.

I would say anything like that is a waste of money.

Besides, when you're hypermiling you're not speeding... you're usually under the speed limit. Nobody here would need that stuff.

I get up to some really high speeds, on a pulse before I EOC. I'm not worried about photo radar, though, they don't put that on rural roads.

The Kragen auto parts here used to sell those. I don't think they do anymore. Come to think of it, I haven't seen the Tornado there lately, either.

If you do need these, maybe you should review this educational video (warning: coarse language) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gCCjFbFXn8
