Nope, wrong track entirely - OK well maybe you'd beat one or two of
commercial systems, but not many and certainly not the ones I've seen.
What's wrong with just having false number plates?
You would need to ensure that the false number plate is of a
legitimate vehicle with tax & insurance. It would also need to be of
the same model & colour car that it is fitted to in order to be
reasonably safe to use.
You would then be hostage to fortune - if the car the plate is cloned
from is taken off road for any reason, you would be pulled over PDQ.
If you tripped a speed camera without noticing, the NIP would be sent
to the keeper of the cloned car who would probably contest it,
resulting in the cloning being exposed and every policeman looking for
Cloned plates are fine for a short time, e.g. a one-off robbery etc.,
but would be very dangerous to keep on your car for any longer.
You could of course fit a foreign plate to avoid those problems, but
could then stand a higher chance of a random stop, especially if the
country of the plate does not match the side the car's steering-wheel
is fitted, or other things noticed in the car whilst it is parked are
at odds with the purported country of registration.
