This is a perfect reason why those damn traffic cameras should be outlawed:
High school students in Maryland are using speed cameras to get back at their perceived enemies, and even teachers. The students duplicate the victim’s license plate on glossy paper using a laser printer, tape it over their own plate, then speed past a newly installed speed camera. The victim gets a $40 ticket in the mail days later, without any humans ever having been involved in the ticketing process. A blog dedicated to driving and politics adds that a similar, if darker, practice has taken hold in England, where bad guys cruise the streets looking for a car similar to their own. They then duplicate its plates in a more durable form, and thereafter drive around with little fear of trouble from the police.
It’s time for these things to be banned, along with tasers . Law enforcement was an issue I really wanted brought up during the election cycle, but it never was. It’s time we evaluate what is going on with law enforcement and make changes.
