Speed camera scam

Given the time of year, the sight of an elf at the roadside might ordinarily bring a smile to motorists' faces. When he is armed with a police badge and a speed-gun, it is a different matter.

Determined to find out who is naughty and who is nice in the lead-up to Christmas, officers in Orlando, Florida, are dressing up as Father Christmas's elves and staking out the highway to nab drivers exceeding the 45mph limit.

Thankfully this speed camera scam is in America. But how long before camera partnerships or the police think of it over here?
