Surely not?

A slightly more balanced version:

Quote:
Both the Daily Mail and The Independent have published stories covering the Spike Speed Camera system which is currently on trial at a number of locations. Spike is not a new system. Manufactured by Pips Technology who are based in Eastleigh near Southampton, it has already seen use as part of the London Congestion Charge scheme and works in much the same way as Speed Check Services SPECS system.
Spike consists of a camera with infra-red illuminator and the ability to read vehicle number plates (ANPR).
By comparing the time taken for a vehicle to pass between two Spike cameras, the distance between which is known, the system can calculate a vehicle's average speed between those locations.
