How to successfully block a speed camera

Firstly, this is the General Lounge for most things to do with our roads. Indeed, most of us at some time use the road system in some way. With this in mind, users may post their experiences or observations here.

How to successfully block a speed camera

Chris Welford, 23, stopped his BMW behind a speed camera in Cleveland, UK and opened his boot.
This prevented the camera from snapping unsuspected vehicles that may have been going too fast on the road.
The police threatened him with arrest after they refused to see the funny side of things.
However, Welford claims to have been caught by cameras before and insists he is doing nothing wrong.
This is the a good way to to stop these tax collectors from increasing their business.

Also, here is a video of a driver of a van who also parked behind a speed camera and was politely requested to move.
However, the driver said he is having his break and will move after that which may be a hour or two :lol:

Speed cameras are only money making scams.
Nothing more and nothing less.

Speed cameras are basically cash cows for the government.

How very true, but the cameras should be fully visible so nobody should really get a ticket.
