License plate blocker!?

Hey guys,

I know im going to get stuff from just about everyone on this website but im hoping that there is at least 1 person here a little crazier than I am. This is my thought. I want to have somthing to go over my plate at the push of a button or somthing to that effect. I am aware that it is highly illegal to do that but if im riding through bumper to bumper traffic and dont want to get caught, i want to be able to have this option. Has anyone thought of this? I looked online and found alot of photo blockers but i dont want that. I want a full proof shield that blocks all light (such as a metal shield). My thoughts are to glue magnets on the back of the plate, apply hinges some how and have a flip down door or somthing and it will fasten when hitting the magnets. Also was thinking of an instant black out button. If a cover can become jet black in an instant so that nothing can be seen through it. I cant think of how to complete these ideas or how to rig it. If anyone has any crazy ideas please fill me in. and i know most of you are thinking if you wanna do stuff like that, why not just take off the plate? This is because i dont want to get pulled over for no plate, only to have the plate blocked when needed.

It's legal in California and a lot of Europe. In South Africa, they zip between cars at lights and go to the head of the line, and it's culturally acceptable. Of course they also pull to the right and let faster drivers pass, so what does that say about the US?
It should be legal here too. It is actually safer in the places where it is used, if you look at the specs. Italian drivers in the North near Milon are very professional and courteous. Here we have the most up tight people in a hurry, not to mention the old ,slow drivers 90 plus on the road. We suck bigtime. Does anyone else have roadrage in their countries?
This tag device would have been on my list when I was young. I did have the tail and stop lights rigged so I could shut them off. We thought out running the cops was a fun thing to do. I guess they still do. Now I wouldn't and couldn't do it.
