High school students in Maryland are using speed cameras to get back at their perceived enemies
, and even teachers. The students duplicate the victim's license plate on glossy paper using a laser printer, tape it over their own plate, then speed past a newly installed speed camera. The victim gets a $40 ticket in the mail days later, without any humans ever having been involved in the ticketing process. A blog dedicated to driving and politics adds that a similar, if darker, practice has taken hold in England, where bad guys cruise the streets looking for a car similar to their own
. They then duplicate its plates in a more durable form, and thereafter drive around with little fear of trouble from the police.
