'With traditional cameras, using film which can run out, motorists hope they can get away with speeding.

But the new digital version sends images along a phone line to a Metropolitan Police centre in Kent.

And fines can be sent out within 24 hours. '
:crazy:

A news story to warm the cockles of your heart. NOT.

At least Blackspot will probably program our devices to warn us before we enter tunnels that have cameras. Good enough for me. That reminds me - must update mine now.........

Except radar detectors are no good when the camera works on detectors fitted in the road (because the signal would be distorted in a tunnel.

Just one question for the techies here - is it possible to prove 100% that a digital image has not been altered? I know that this can be done with film (so there is no worry with continuity of evidence) but I can not find any cases where a digital image has been enough to convict ON ITS OWN.

Oh. and is it possible to scramble a digital image with a good electro magnet?

:bannana:
