Wrexham Man Loses Job Over False Speed Camera Ticket – Could Have Been Prevented

A man who received a speed camera ticket and paid his fine back in October has been told that he is one of 1,100 who received a ticket in error, but the error cost him a job. The inconvenience, expense, and lost job could have been avoided, according to speed camera expert.

Wrexham, United Kingdom, June 28, 2005 --( More than 1,100 motorists who received speed camera tickets last October have now been informed that the tickets were issued in error, and one man has complained that the wrongful ticket cost him a job opportunity, according to published reports.

“Speed cameras are not perfect. Mistakes are made all the time. Sometimes the police agree to the errors and make refunds, and sometimes they do not. The average person who gets a ticket in the mail has little choice but to pay the fine,” said Paul Walsh of PhantomPlate, Inc. – maker of PhotoBlocker (tm).

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.

“The cost of taking a day or more off of work, getting legal help, and dealing with the stress involved is intimidating, and as a result most people just pay the fine even though they know they do not deserve the ticket,” said Walsh.

In this most recent incident of another faulty speed camera, one of the 1,100 motorists who were wrongly ticketed was denied a job because of his speed camera offense. Now that the offense has been taken off his record it is too late to reapply for the job.

Anthony Waters of Wrexham, U.K. received a letter from the police telling him that the points against his license have been removed, and a refund will be sent to him in July.

Waters complained to the press that when he received the ticket in the mail he has to pay immediately. He said he is upset that he has to wait for the refund. He has a very low-paying job and the amount of the fine is about one third of his weekly pay.

Many people learn of situations such as this and have begun using a form of self-defense against unjust speed camera and red light camera tickets. Law-abiding motorists want to avoid the challenges of time, expense, and stress that occur if an ticket arrives in the mail from a faulty camera.

“This is only one of many reports that give significant evidence that red light and speed cameras are not accurate. Innocent people receive tickets all the time, but they have no ability to fight the system,” said Walsh. His company manufactures PhotoBlocker (tm), a very popular spray that makes number plates unreadable to speed cameras.

“Drivers are tired of getting tickets they do not deserve. The cost in time and money to defend themselves is excessive, and so they would rather use our 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 Walsh.

The demand for cans of PhotoBlocker (tm) spray grows steadily every month, with sales of over 300,000 cans protecting over 1 million vehicles on six continents.

“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 Walsh.

The company’s web site at provides testimonials, as well as full details about the product and the need for marketing affiliates to help get it to more consumers.
