I have photos of recent trial tests by Police of speed cameras in green wheelie bins. I guess that it was just a matter of time.

If there is a shared file that I can put the photos for easy viewing?

If anyone wants to see them put your email adress below and I will forward them on.

See You NT

reminds me of a tale I once heard...cant vouch for its authenticity though

a couple mates wanting to get back at another couple of shooters go out spot lighting/shooting and bowl over a fox. knowing that the other 'mates' would be passing that way soon, they took the fox, planted it between some bushes about 150 m out and tainted the eyes with red reflective prisms......

story goes that the "mates" ages to kill it!

Now, is this the 240 litre bin, or the half sized one?

Is it the recycling bin, or the garden waste one?

Cheers

The white triton setting up camera's in bins in geelong a month ago was using yellow wheelie bins, in both sizes, with a clear panel in the side facing the rear of the car after it drove past, on Bellerine hwy Newcomb, outside Rapidclean when i stopped to make sure what i was seeing was correct.

The 2 different bins had camera's, being compared to the car mounted unit on the triton.....

Here in WA there have been cases of people being prosecuted and fined/jailed for driving over multa-nova speed cameras. Presumably, (and I am of course not suggesting in any way that anyone should try this) if a driver momentarily lost control and hit a wheelie bin they could only be prosecuted, in a civil action, to recover the cost of the bin, anything inside being worthless rubbish.

Secondly, when we have roadside junk collections here it is common for people to go around and help themselves to items they want - good recycling practice and to be applauded. I wonder what the legal position is if you find an expensive camera put out on the roadside in a rubbish bin obviously awaiting collection by the garbos?
