Bill Would Ban Chemical That Could Hide License Plate Numbers
CHICAGO -- State lawmakers have passed a measure that would ban a chemical spray that can hide license plate numbers from law enforcement cameras, NBC5 reported on Friday.
The Illinois Senate bill would revoke the license of anyone caught using the substance. Legislators said the clear spray could obstruct the state's tollway cameras, which are used to catch toll scofflaws.
It could also be used to foil cameras set up at Chicago intersections to catch people who run red lights. The measure still must be voted on in the House and signed by Gov. Rod Blagojevich before becoming law.
