If photo radar means less of those speed traps on the 407 and 400 highways, then I guess it’s okay. Look on the bright side, you don’t loose demerit points like speed traps. It’s still a money making event…

On a similar note, I have to get a Nissan Path Finder like in the photo with the rear spear tire.

I’ve marked in blue the angle at which you can read the license plate (bottom of the plate even). If the camera is mounted on top of a van for example, the angle is too great and you’ll just sap a picture of the rear tire. It does matter how far back the picture is snapped as well.

Even better is, the 407 cameras. They are mounted so high, that they cannot snap the license plate on a pathfinder. I know someone who’s been traveling the 407 for 3+ years and has never received a bill. It’s perfectly legal because that’s original equipment on the Pathfinder.
