Talking CCTV Cameras? :| I thought it was some "Operator" that actually spoke into a Microphone and it came out of a speaker that was attched to/near the actual camera.

:D :D:D
No m8. That`s old technology. The camera can actually tell when you`ve dropped litter, and it shouts at you to identify yourself.

Most people think "that`s stupid"; but if you don`t, it will pass your image to the nearest "available" community support officer; who will follow you home; arrange for the Black Maria; and have you whisked off to a cell. :eek:

However, if you actually tell the camera who you are, (don`t lie, they have recognition systems - voice stress analysis blah deblah deblah), and insert your credit card, type in the pin, and the fine is automatically debited from your account. :x

This is a "one off" too. Next time you do something wrong, the camera will recognise you, pull up your details, and fine you without even bothering to tell you. X(

The litter / piece of fruit / twig will still be on the ground. They don`t want it clean. They want you to pay for having it cleaned. :_|

And, oh yeah. Those who don`t drop litter can NOT have a reduction on their poll tax bill (What? Same tax, different name. Don`t be naive.). :(

Are you SURE I`m talking nonsense?

Want to look at this again in a few years?

I don`t.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, maybe the Gatso hit squad should branch out a bit further?

I can just imagine some machine telling me too "Identify" myself for dropping/placing that apple core in a place where it would break down naturally.

Yeah okay, now wheres that sugar/glycerine/Pottasium Manganate mix? B)

The Poll tax was paid by everyone over 18 - I believe? it is also spelt "Poll" - the new version is only paid by one tennant (even jointly - only one payment). and it is spelt "Council".it is also about

Problem with CCTV is that it just doesn't work!

As I recall a senior copper recently said most of the images are next to useless and there seems not to be a standard format used.

Anyhow all CCTV does is to move the 'problem' elsewhere that has no CCTV coverage. So it doesn't really stop anti-social behaviour.

And the fact that this country has the most cameras per head of population in the world just brings '1984' to life! And as for ID cards! :_|

You mean helping the thieves...

"Attention all drug dealers.. the owner of the blue ford focus just hid their lap top in the boot!"..

"Silver Megan has a nice Sat nav, owner just gone in hairdressers.. will be gone for half hour plus"....

"Easy pickings available from the green Astra.. nice Hi-Fi & Rolex watch left in glove box.. owner at the gym.. not back till 11:30".
