Hoppers Speed Camera Sign

I'd like to thank whoever it was with the red E series who has taken upon themselves the task of placing a bloody big "Speed Camera Ahead" sign behind the blood sucking scum speed camera operator on Morris Road in Hoppers Crossing.

You are a legend (and probably saved me a few $$$ too!)

Re: Hoppers Speed Camera Sign

the car was about 50 meters before the camera with a chalk board leaned up on the boot. Easy to spot and easily enough time to slow down. I went by 10kph under the limit, waived to the guy in the E series and gave the bird to the operator of the revenue machine!

I love it! I've wanted to do that for quite a while. Full points to the E series guy.

I never used to but in these days of the zero tolerance regime I make a point of doing it.

A couple of months ago in Vermont a revenue camera in a Hyundai soft-roader was set up on Boronia Rd on the downhill section (of course) to catch people heading East. Someone set up a home made sign and leaned it against the back of the camera car. It read:

"Revenue Camera Here"

Classic. A slab awaits the person responsible!!

Re: Hoppers Speed Camera Sign

If all of us banded together and started putting signs up when we see a camera, I am sure it would cut the revenue of the fixed cameras out a bit at least. I for one am going to start doing it.

Re: Hoppers Speed Camera Sign

I always flash my headlights to warn on-coming cars about speed cameras ahead,i deliberately flash my lights in front of the operater so he knows that im doing it ,just to give them the shits ,i hope so.
Cheers John
