Highway speed cameras are meant to slow down those with a lead foot, lest they risk being ticketed. However, a few student pranksters from Maryland are using them for mean-spirited pranks. They are cloning license plates from vehicles of someone who has gotten under their skin. The students then take a fast-pass joyride down the highway with their fake license plates and, a few weeks later, their victim receives a ticket in the mail.
Isn’t 21st Century punking just grand? I doubt the ticket would stick. You may be able to fake a license plate but you cannot do the same for make and model. Still, the victim would have to go through the pain-in-the-butt process of clearing their name--which probably makes the prankster feel rather successful.
