NSW Police Cameras

Maybe we should resort to similar tactics (blacked out plates of course)

The best one was where they took the licence plate off the speed camera van, put it on their own car and then proceed to speed past the van repeatedly.

This sort of thing really pisses me off ..... not "mooning the speed camera" , but the sanctimonious, hypocrytical, moralising statements made by Jeremy Forsberg at the end of the article. Since when did a speed camera or its parasitic operators deserve respect?

I hate how they call them "road safety" cameras. It makes sense with drivers in front of you locking up the brakes when they see one

I think Aussies would feel better about them if they were called "Road Tax" cameras and when they fired off you could hear a cash register sound... then they would be truthful.

The funny thing when I drove to the Hunter Valley last was the 3 signs warning me of the "road safety camera", then when you approach it, there are about 3 uplights clearly showing the camera like some piece of grotesque art, so anyone that does get caught, really deserves it!
