    Default Recycle Bin Photo Radar ?

    Hey all,

    I just got this email from a co-worker and I am wondering if these pics are true or not.

    I guess since photo radar was easy to see via idling minivans on the side of the road, Alberta police have made a "prototype" device that they would hide the trap inside a Recycle Bin.









    So whatcha think? Real or Fake?

    Yes, rumour has it they've been deployed in Edmonton. Haven't heard of them in Calgary yet, but I'm sure they are coming.

    They first used them in South Australia...not so popular anymore as trucks kept hitting them intentionally with their bull bars and people walk past them and push them over.
