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.

So you basically want to know how to block your plates because you can't patiently travel in bumper to bumper traffic like everybody else and don't want anyone to be able to read your tags as you cut in and out in front of them?

I saw this one guy driving an Impala with this cover over his license plate that looked liked a louver type cover. I was driving right behind him and I could barely read his plate. You cannot read it from an upper angle.
Obviously a camera wouldn't be able to read this and if I had hard time reading the plates with my own eyes while right behind it, I can see how it would be difficult for the police to even read it.

Perhaps this guy was just an punk idiot that doesn't want his plate read by cameras, but what if he was a true criminal type?

I cannot see how that **** is even legal and if it isn't, I hope the guy gets fined heavily for it.
