Apparently, not many motorists are happy with red-light cameras -- the law-enforcement products that snap a photo of you and your license plate if you
are caught in an intersection when the light turns red. Many feel the devices are more about raising municipal profits than they are about making the
roads better. With those disgruntled drivers as possible customers, two items have been separately designed to bust the photo-busters at their own
game. One is presently accessible. The other seeks additional seed cash. If you want to read the article, you can get it here:

Damn this debate has been ragin in the UK for over a decade or more concerning speed cameras.
It seems pretty inconclusive whether they've had a dramatic effect on road accidents by themselves or the accumalitive effect of multiple strategies
and the already downward trend.
Siteing them in heavy traffic to pedestrian areas or outside schools very few would argue with but quiet,straight and safe roads where the speed limit
just gone from 30 to 40 is blatantly there to catch people out dozing,a its a revenue stream which just gets on peoples nerves.
It's mobile vans and units that sit with cameras trying to catch you at 70mph as the road goes from dual carriageway to normal A road.Again it
appears to be revenue driven mostly.
If you are unlucky it's the number plate that identifies you so the citation is posted to the vehicle owners.Of course if you can talk someone into
owning up as the driver then you can sidestep it but....
I've heard of fancy plates that reflect the radar,that supposedly show up blank on film etc,etc but they don't work,nor does a loosened rattly
What can would be conveniently caking part of the plate in mud or dirt but they see you,they pull you.lol.
Oddly we have cameras on our traffic lights to aid traffic control but have never heard of them taking stijls or used against light jumpers.
if they did my licence would be toast cos i'm bad for sneaking thru in the tail though the lights just gone red.
If a cop car saw me then it'd be 3 points and a fine - 60 quid.lol
