Fun fact: This new generation of speed traps uses two Leica M8 cameras, as VictorF has pointed out below.

Furthermore, they not only measure the velocity of cars passing by, but also cross-check the licence plate numbers with a database and automatically alert the police forces nearby so they can intercept wanted delinquents.

    So «the evil» used to employ automated Leicas, really?!
    But then again, these boxes pay off pretty fast… 😉
