Teens Prank Speed Cams Technology Gone Wrong
It seems that a bunch of kids have come up with a way to fool those annoying speed cameras into giving tickets to the wrong people. How? Printing out fake license plates, taping them over their own and then speeding through the speed trap. Don’t feel bad, as despicable as this is…I laughed too.
Students duplicate the license plates by printing plate numbers on glossy photo paper, using fonts from certain websites that "mimic" those on Maryland license plates. They tape the duplicate plate over the existing plate on the back of their car and purposefully speed through a speed camera, the parent said. The victim then receives a citation in the mail days later. Students are even obtaining vehicles from their friends that are similar or identical to the make and model of the car owned by the targeted victim, according to the parent.
