Arrow Amazing New Speed Camera

Hey Guys,

This is the new speed camera which has been installed in France....


Shocking... Thats all I can say about the camouflage. How the hell is someone supposed to recognise them.

why should there be a need to recognise them? one should cultivate to keep under control & within legal limits at all times.

these kind of devices will ensure that after some years people will get so habituated to drive within limits with or without the presence of these gadgets.

need a lot of these in INDIA to make our roads better & safer. wud love to have them here, although i might be in for some bashing by fellow bros

Why!!!! It's really scarier!

Now, the speeding will be very much be careful of cameras. And the after effect would be less concentration on road than on the fence!!

I'd like to see a smiley from you AFTER you've paid some speeding fines, young man. Some really big fines.
