|We have lots of other speed cameras. Started off years ago with a thing called Gatso. Flashed you as it took a photo on roll film. Film had to be recovered and analyzed by trainee idiot in the office. Many of these cameras were torched.
We have now gone digital with too many camera types to name. They are all based on Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology. This identifies the vehicle, its registered keeper and status of RK's licence, its compliance with insurance, tax and MOT, stolen vehicle, previous traffic offences, vehicle associated with crime, etc etc.
If you fit an unrecognisable plate to your machine, or even no plate at all, you may be charged with "failure to display" for £100 fine and 3 points. That's a lot cheaper than the other offences.
