    Default gatso

    some of the ''safety'' camera partnership websites have this stuff on them!

    why they do this i dont know! probibly to try and coax people into thinking they are for safety purposes! may be!!

    heres some info on the digital gatso!!

    Gatso Digital RCS (Radar Camera System)


    The Gatso Digital RCS is designed to capture high quality images with two million-pixel resolution, in varying environmental and lighting conditions. It is a combination of the radar type 24 with Handheld Control, the digital colour or B/W camera (with optional infrared flash) which are all connected to a Digital Control Unit. The Digital RCS can be used in different settings: built in a car, in FIP and on tripod. Violation images and information can be viewed or downloaded immediately with a laptop (or PC or network) using Gatsometer software “GatsoTools”. GatsoTools will use a copy of the offence data (including the images).

    what do you mean is in what countries!

    there everywhere in europe and uk... and there are some in usa!

    but i think if there were as many in the usa as over here more than 6000 i think their'd be full scale riots!



    i cant go for a drive without running into loads!

    heres another one somwhere else in the country!




    and this is what they do at them in the nederlands
