I had a friendly wager with a friend.

One of my many, many friends outside of the zone recently made the comment that he thought people were altering their license plates in order to avoid photo radar tickets. My contention is that most likely the green paint that they used for the numbers and letters on the plates was not sufficiently UV proof and caused the clear coat to peel and along with it, the reflective coating.
Now me, always wanting to think the best of humanity bet him 100 US dollars that the license plates were in fact defective, and that if people were to be trying to skirt the law LEOs would be all over them like ducks on a junebug. As I recall with a conversation I had with a DMV employee, the company that produced them only did so for a few years before switching over to the non raised letter new style plate.
Does anyone have concrete irrefutable proof as to either way?

I can only say from experience that I had a raised letter plate from Nov 2000 on my wife's vehicle until 2011 and it was somewhat blistered and looked distorted when it would have headlights shining on it. A friend of mine asked me if we had sprayed something on it to make it look that way when light hit it. The plate on my truck has been there since 1991, sits in the sun all day at work, and still looks fine.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, in the early years of this process, the embossing action stretched the vinyl film coating, weakening it and causing the background to peel if further damaged by impacts or tearing. Thatís why you occasionally see plates on the road with dull gray center areas, the color of the original aluminum. The manufacturer changed to a more durable vinyl film.
