Montreal Police Add New Weapon

No it isn't a crime fighting tool, just another device that will be used to give out more tickets.

Be warned, no more driving around with expired tags or unpaid tickets.

A high speed camera is placed on the trunk of a police car facing oncoming traffic. The camera scans license plates as cars drive by. The numbers are instantly run through the police computer and faster than you can say "Who me?" another police car down the road pulls over those who license plates are flagged.

How effective is it. Pretty damn effective, that's for sure.

Police place the camera at certain strategic choke points, like highway exits.
A recent operation was carried out on the road leading up to the Jacques Cartier bridge at rush hour.

Cars were pulled over at a rate of one every 30 seconds!

Better pay those tickets and registration fees!
