Portable Cash Machine

On the day Donald Trump joked about having Hillary Clinton shot (and let's be honest, that is what he was joking about), his favourite TV News Channel was reporting a speed camera design that is allegedly bullet-proof.  Here is the Fox News story.

And here is our own Sunday Times article that they nicked it from. (but since they are both owned by Rupert Murdoch I don't suppose it really matters)

And here is the offending device:
It looks a bit like one of those generators you see towed behind trucks that come along to dig up the road:
Especially when you hear that the camera has wheels that are retracted when in situ for security purposes.

And this generator is painted yellow which is what the camera would have to be if used in the UK.

But I can't help thinking that this inconvenience could be easily fixed with a bit of duck-tape.
And so could the speed-camera.

  1. And no warning markers on the road with this gizmo by the sound of it. I think I'll put a can of spray paint in the boot in case I spot one
