Look out speeders….That radar detector might end up being useless.

21 04 2005

University of Florida engineers have developed a camera which can determine the speed of a vehicle, by its relative change in position with fixed objects.

This is a PASSIVE detection system, which means that things like radar detectors won’t do you any good when trying to avoid them.  Looks like the only way around this is to lobby our politicians for higher speed limits on the roads  – Something like 80km/h in the city?  Anybody looking to short sell the makers of Radar Detectors?
