The Dutch police have come up with an original way to hide the speed camera from the eyes of drivers. The law enforcement officers installed the system for fixing violations in a mobile toilet. The know-how proved to be effective: dozens of motorists, exceeding the speed limit, have already fallen into the insidious “trap”.
As Autoblog.nl writes, recently such a “mobile toilet” was noticed near the town of Maarsen. However, for the first time it appeared much earlier – an unusual complex, which was popularly nicknamed Dixi, the police began to use last year. Earlier, the toilet was also seen in the city of Almere, where 59 drivers were immediately fined for speeding.
It is really difficult for drivers to identify a speed camera. It is discreetly located in the toilet cabin, which is installed on the trailer of the VW Caddy van. Naturally, the car does not have any identification marks of the police, and the law enforcement officers themselves are dressed in orange vests of road workers.
By the way, this is far from the only method of camouflaging cameras used by the Dutch police. Prior to that, law enforcement officers hid special equipment in garbage cans and on billboards.
