Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Can infrared LEDs thwart traffic cameras?

SonicSpike writes: IR emitters (such as what's at the end of your remote control) will show up on camera even if they are not visible to the naked eye.

Could this be applied to traffic / red light / speed cameras?

For example, if you were to put a bunch of IR LEDs around your license plate to light it up, could you wash out the image enough to prevent a good capture by a traffic camera?
