Highway Patrol, Pre-Crime Division


Matthew Smith has worked as a motorcycle courier for 15 years, and he says he doesn't have a single speeding citation on his record. But London, England, police recently sent him a ticket for doing 39 mph in a 30 mph zone. He was allegedly clocked by an automatic camera. But Smith noted the date of the alleged offense was four days after the date the ticket was issued. This isn't the first time motorists have received tickets for future offenses from "speed cameras" in London. Police, at first, insisted these were isolated events. But after Smith pointed out the incorrect date, they dropped charges against him.
