Just putting up a thread so that Australian W's remember to check in. It looks like things were pretty nasty and it's still a few hours until daylight yet.

Interesting story about a guy back east who developed a way to keep those cameras from being able to get a usuable photo of the plate. He developed it for his company, saved loads and is now marketing it.
