Isnt there a spray out there that you can cover your license plate in and when cameras try to take a picture it fails... maybe I saw that in one of those crazy made up internet ads that want you to click on them.

It would be pretty easy to make... just use a decent remote control car grade servo. Already runs on 12volts, and has about the throw that you need without using any linkage (though you could if you wanted to mount the servo elsewhere).

For an over-simplified version, you are basically making this....

There's ways that use a circuit board and motor, and ways that just use the servo and it's internal limits. Easy as pie.

Actually, RC servos traditionally run on 4.8-6.0V, which is basically 4cell or 5cell NiCd or NiMH. Some of the newer ones can take the 7.4-8.4V of a 2S LiPo battery. There are servos that are meant for robotics hobbies that might take 12V straight.

In any event, you'll need to be able to control the servos with a PPM signal, say from an RC receiver, or one of these: http://www.seetron.com/sscasd2.html

All fun stuff. But if you just want a way to, uh... "mitigate" the toll charge problem, there are other easier way to go about it.

just remove your servo from your exhaust and install it on the plate.. then floor it on the toll bars..

I guess I've been dealing with the RC Rock Crawler stuff too much Those servos will crush your finger when on 12volts.

Anyways, there are ways around the needing complicated (or bought) circuits... which is why I linked the useless machine. There's many different wiring setups used for that, which would work with little to no changes.

Or... you could use a pull cable from a bicycle brake, on a spring loaded bracket... or any other number of easier mechanical ways. Unless you just want the bling.

Easiest way to hook this up is to use a automotive door lock actuator or a trunk release solenoid. They run on 12V and do not require anything other than an ON/OFF switch to operate. You find a ton of them going for cheap on ebay, or just about anywhere auto parts are sold.

Instead of all this gadgetry, I still think the best way is to learn the way of the Tollway Ninjas.
