Cameras to watch cameras that watch you

 

Many people find speed cameras frustrating, and some in the region are taking their rage out on the cameras themselves.

But now there's a new solution: cameras to watch the cameras.

What if vandals attack the cameras that watch the speed cams? Will they install more cameras to watch each other? Or will they hire more police officers to watch the cameras? Oh wait...

Well

Well, at some point, if the vandals keep it up, the camera folks & the local jurisdiction will find it un-economic to place them at certain locations.

Those will likely be the poorer neighborhood where the hoods will enjoy the desctruction. The "proper" neighborhoods will simply just keep paying.

Several years ago I read an article about cameras in UK (I think), where vandals put old tires on the cameras, filled them with gasoline, & set them afire. We'll see if that methodology carries across the Atlantic.

They have a speed camera on a road named "Race Track Road"? That's practically entrapment. laugh out loud

But when someone burned down a speed camera on Race Track Road near Bowie State College on July 3, Liberati and his colleagues began to rethink their strategy.

Really?

"Liberati says the cameras aren't a case of Big Brother nor a cash grab, police are simply trying to keep the public safe from reckless drivers."

That's so thoughtful of them! It sure seems like the people taking out their anger on the cameras by destroying them, are trying to keep the general public from enjoying the safety benefits of the cameras. They're so mean!

Better Camera Use

The folks in PG Co, MD would find placing cameras to watch their politicians might be of better use!
