To the people who live in countries that use these things....are the cameras themselves heavily monitored? Do they get effed with all the time or what?Posted by TheThingToSay
I'm pretty sure this is not a speed camera. I looks like a private investigator's photo.Posted by e4excellence

They are simply measuring the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow.Posted by xceph
Looks like that bill prevented you from getting a bill!Posted by ARC_Prisoner
The fact that you got this photo means that they still got ya though buddy. Rear plate shot? Or a shop with the speed camera data up the top there? ;)Posted by TeHSicKaZsr20

For one fleeting moment I thought the bird was a flash of light and that the car was a DeLorean.Posted by brutis89
What do those numbers actually represent?
The top row looks like speed (72) The second maybe time? GPS location? Serial number
This looks like a mobile speed camera, so I'm guessing the GPS data must be kept to prove where the camera was?Posted by Majus
Based on this, and the fact that distribution of this bird as an invasive species is essentially limited in the US ("Road Closed" sign is American), this photo is most likely taken in Hawaii, or perhaps Florida.
This bird can be mistaken in Florida for a Mockingbird, since both have white patches on their wings that display prominently while in flight. But only the Myna has the distinctive yellow beak and eye ring. The brown scapular feathers (the bird's back) are also distinctive in combination with these other characteristics.Posted by chemistry_teacher
Hey, speed cameras are designed to go off when speeding away, not into your face as it is considered dangerous.
So, that leads me to believe there is something else that triggered the camera to fire? someone want to comment as I have no experience in this area...Posted by 3LollipopZ-1Red2Blue

Someone needs to go around putting blurry transparent bird stickers on all speed cameras. Make them flying different directions and different species.Posted by midnightrider

Finally the answer to "What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?"Posted by ItsDanaFTW
the bird blocked the license plate that the camera was trying to get because he was speeding. lucky as hellPosted by jessejamess
