The mobiles ones I have seen around here all have ball receivers on them. So if you drive a plain enough looking white domestic truck with a hitch, you could just back up to them and tow them off to the middle of nowhere and dump them.

I'm sure they have GPS tracking on them, so leave your phone at home so the two can't be correlated.

FTFA: Albuquerque police data shows 2,994 drivers were caught driving 11 over the speed limit since the camera was brought in on June 10.


Sounds like the speed limit is set artificially low.

The speed cameras they use around here (and in the UK and lots of other places that use Redflex) have very good DSLR camera bodies in them. There is already a black market for them.  I've been told the lenses aren't that useful except for some types of close wildlife type photography.

I'm mostly against the cameras but will concede them as a last resort after attempting the necessary studies and changes to the road to alter driver's habits. Those are usually very effective and much safer for everyone.
Sounds like they skipped a lot of steps here though.
