Default Smart CCTV

Did anyone see that program on tv about smart cctv camers that are not watched by humans but computers. They scan for aggresive behavoir, voice etc and can even identify people by the way they walk.

Downside is they can be used to target motorists - if you stop in a box junction then band you get a fine in the post the next day

all they need now is to attach a small machine gun to it and it can shoot speeding motorists as they drive past , now that would be funny

yep. its all one big con. just like speed cameras. ive never liked the things. if your a mad driver then all a speed camera does is slows you down for a few seconds.

shouldn't be stopping in Box junctions anyway!

I really hate it when I'm sat at the edge of a box junction, with my exit clear, but some prat is stuck in the middle because he couldn't be bothered to wait till his exit was clear and so just holds everyone else up!
