Here's bad news for those who speed:
Several of the limited-access tollways in the USA tried this in the early 1980s based upon one's entry time and exit time at the tollbooths - they knew the distance, they knew the speed limit, but they had constitutional issues, one assumes with the whole "you must hand us your ticket" scheme running up against the 5th Amendment
right against self-incrimination.
Yep, yet another attempt technology in search of a problem in my book....
To me, governments have just about ZERO credibility on the "public safety" angle of this debate so long as they continue to pocket the proceeds from speeding enforcement. I'll start taking them seriously when they say: "Speeding is creating a serious safety hazard for our people. We're going to buy x technology to control speeding, and then once we've covered the costs of the speed control program, we're going to donate to charity any extra monies that we collect."
Yeah, like that's ever going to happen...........
I guess they record the location and time hack of every car passing the camera. How long do they keep that data point, an hour or years?
Wow, that's pretty bad! Big Brother run amok
