Automatic money grabber, for government ... and your own good, of course


WASHINGTON - Most people don't notice a mobile speed camera until they see a flash in the rearview mirror and realize they've been caught. 

That's the idea. Local governments are availing themselves of new mobile speed cameras that resemble mailboxes as effective and profitable ways to slow drivers down. 

Yes, accent on the "profitable." And don't say anything, witch-boy, just pay us your money. 

What caught my eye on this article is how the cameras are made to "look like mailboxes." You can click here to see what one looks like and for more of the article. Do they look like mailboxes? Judge for yourself.
