Four youths from Edmonton, Alberta pulled off a trick of breathtaking
bravado in order to gain revenge on a mobile speed camera van
operating in the area.
Three of the group approached the van and distracted the operator's
attention by asking a series of questions about how the equipment
worked and how many cars the operator could catch in a day.
Meanwhile, the fourth musketeer sneaked to the back of the van and
unscrewed its numberplate.
After bidding the van operator goodbye, the friends returned home,
fixed the number plate to their car and drove through the camera's
radar at high speed - 17 times. As a result, the automated billing
system issued 17 speeding tickets to itself."
