Pranksters in Maryland have discovered how easy it is to "spoof" those stupid speed camera / redlight "ticketing machines" that unscrupulous police departments have made the latest weapon of the Badged Highwaymen:

Originating from Wootton High School, the parent said, students duplicate the license plates by printing plate numbers on glossy photo paper, using fonts from certain websites that "mimic" those on Maryland license plates. They tape the duplicate plate over the existing plate on the back of their car and purposefully speed through a speed camera, the parent said. The victim then receives a citation in the mail days later.
Anybody notice this going on in other jurisdictions?
