Exclamation UK: Speed Camera Evidence Manipulated

Article: UK: Speed Camera Evidence Manipulated

Speed camera vanA speed camera operator in Kent, UK has been suspended while police investigate charges that he "fixed" motorist speeds before issuing tickets. Motorcycle News learned Wednesday that the operator is accused of manipulating evidence to make motorists appear to travel faster.

"We've suspended a member of police staff on a procedural matter pending an internal investigation," Kent Police said in a statement. "This is standard practice while an inquiry is conducted. Kent Police is investigating the way in which speed camera equipment was used on a particular occasion."

The statement denied any readings had been "fixed" but admitted 120 citations have been thrown out.

"It is a procedural issue that relates to the use of the equipment," the statement continued. "We have discontinued 120 cases as a precaution while we investigate." Source

Watch this video - it shows how you "fix" higher speed readings with Lidar.

The interesting part is 05.30 minutes in - it demonstrates how the slip effect generates a higher readings when the beam is accidentally panned down the hood, from the windscreen towards the headlights.

PS I just love the lawyers quote just before it at about 5.25
