Italian Speed Fraud

An Italian based speed camera manufacturer is being accused of fraudThe Police raided the company’s headquarters and seized speed camera devices as evidence. The manufacturer has allegedly deployed cameras bearing the same serial number, thus avoiding mandatory testing requirements under Italian law. In addition, they calibrated some cameras in such a way that motorists who were travelling within the limit received a ticket. The result is that 81,555 tickets that were issued between 2007 and 2009 have been cancelled, penalty points removed and refunds issued (to the tune of 11.3 million Euros).
