CHILLING new police tech lets road cops spy on drivers from a THOUSAND meters away as officials step up their fight against speeding. Police have unveiled a new breed of speed camera capable of recording clear video footage of motorists inside their vehicles as they drive unaware they are being watched. By the time a diver notices the camera on the roadside, it has already seen them behind the wheel, knows what they are doing in their seat and how fast they are travelling. Privacy watchdogs warned the intrusive technology could be used to film innocent people who are not breaking the traffic laws. The massive portable camera - dubbed The Long Ranger - was showcased on major A roads linking Gloucestershire and Wiltshire during the launch of pilot project called Operation Indemnis. Martin Surl, Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire, said he hoped the kit would catch motorists using their mobile phones. If the pilot is a success, the camera could be rolled out across the … [Read more...] about Big Brother fears as police unveil speed camera that spies on drivers from almost a MILE away

A Miramar police officer who was captured on video zigzagging through traffic on a busy South Florida highway was being pursued by the father of her children after she escaped from the couple’s home following a domestic disturbance, authorities said Monday. Footage recorded on another driver’s dashboard camera shows Officer Ashley Abreu’s police cruiser weaving in and out of traffic lanes on I-75 Northbound shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday. A gold Nissan Altima can be seen chasing her car at a high speed — at one point accelerating so fast that smoke could be seen coming from the Nissan's tires. The car eventually cuts off the police cruiser and slows down before the video ends. According to Plantation resident Austin Conley, who captured the video, both cars then pulled over onto the shoulder of the highway. “To me, by everything that I observed, they knew each other by the way the officer reacted, the way the driver of the sedan reacted,” Conley … [Read more...] about Miramar Police Officer in High Speed Incident Caught on Camera Was Chased by Ex: FHP
