Good on them I was always writing into the council that there was a lack of wheelie bins in the community.

Where'd you get the pics from?

mmmmm..


the reason they need to hide them is ......

because otherwise drivers would see them and slow down..

Isn't that what they are trying to do? - Slow people down.

So this way, they are hidden, the driver gets a notice, however doesn't know they have been caught for some days later when they get the mail.

Meanwhile back at the scene the driver continues to speed, (the police officer can still sleep easily and eat a doughnut in the comfort of the airconditioned observation car, and then the driver runs oversome at the cross walk - well done.

(note: description for demonstration purposes only - we all know speed cameras are not placed near cross walks to protect pedestrians as greater traffic volume can be found on freeways)

mad

The thing is that if people find out about where the cameras are they'll slow down and if the people are beating them at their own job, new ideas will be popping up. Not too long later those ideas will be tackled with and a formula to beat it then (wouldn't you know it!) a new idea will come up.

It's like stealing a car. People put methods to try and combat it, then the stealer will find another way to beat that system in place and so on and so forth.

It's an evolving scene! The cameras will never stop, they'll be on every damn corner by 2010 knowing how Steve Brack works!

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

pull up beside bin with a passenger in the front seat.

have passenger grab wheelie bin handles.

drive away accelerating slowly so the passenger doesnt loose the bin.

get to 60/80/whatever then then instruct passenger to 'throw' the handle of the bin away from the car (preferably aiming towards a brick fence or something) and bobs your uncle - one F*CKED speed camera bin :)

TIP: do it in a shitbox car so you dont chance scratching your lovely paint
