Surprise! You're on Not-So-Candid Camera!

WCIA reports that the Illinois Dept. of Transportation will soon be installing cameras in construction zones that will track speeders and send them tickets in the mail.

So, no, 56 mph in a 55 is not acceptable, even if you can't tell the difference. The little camera can!

I suppose that agency will find any way to absolutely soak us dry for driving on their roads that are constantly under construction. How about the ridiculous $.80 tolls in Chicago? Ugh.

I heard a story about these camera sensors used to give speeding tickets in Spain. Apparently there was this guy who'd drive around in a pig mask, so when the tickets would come he'd say "You can't prove that was me". He kept getting off so the police started to try and find him.

Not sure what happened beyond that.
