I Wonder If It Works For Photo Red

You know it was only a matter of time before someone thought of doing this.

Originating from Wootton High School, the parent said, students duplicate the license plates by printing plate numbers on glossy photo paper, using fonts from certain websites that "mimic" those on Maryland license plates. They tape the duplicate plate over the existing plate on the back of their car and purposefully speed through a speed camera, the parent said. The victim then receives a citation in the mail days later.

Students are even obtaining vehicles from their friends that are similar or identical to the make and model of the car owned by the targeted victim, according to the parent.

It sounds like a lot of trouble to go through for something that should be easy to beat but still create a lot of hassle for the targeted person. Yet how many times have we been told that the camera (or other technical device) doesn't lie?
