Speed cameras?? Robin Hood to the rescue!!!

Recommended Posts

On my day off yesterday I was returning from buying some new tyres with a mate. We were on Bulleen rd North Balwyn at about 5pm when someone gave us a highbeam signal. Lovely i thought - warning us of an upcoming speed camera. We drive up the road looking for the bastard.

Finally we spot it, a magna with the camera setup. Lil bastard we thought! We did u turns for about 30 mins highbeaming everyone! it was great because we did u turns and started heading the other way down the road and other people were highbeaming us back so we had started a nice chain. It was working but not everyone highbeams so we thought how can we do this more effectively?

With home only being a few streets away, we booted it back home, coming back sporting a home made sign. We cut up a nice big box and got the spray paint. 'SPEED CAMERA AHEAD' in massive, bold visible characters.

We grabbed our sign and got to work! About 15 metres from the speed camera setup in the magna, we were showing the sign to all the motorists warning them of the prick waiting to snap anyone doing over 4 km/h over the limit. The public support was outstanding, people beeping, yelling, waving, thumbs up, you name it. Several people did U turns to come back and commend our work! Others were driving past throwing coins/5 buck notes out the window in appreciation!

The dude in the magna with the camera set up had seen our scam in action, all the motorists were doing 20km/h past the camera, and were highbeaming the crap out of the otehr side of the road warning them. I got the sign and showed it to the guy in the magna and making hand signals of 'slow down' and he proceeded to take several pictures of us haha.

He then got out of the car and started running over, we ran around the corner to our car, and booted off around the block to the other side of the road to launch another attack on this ****roach.

The stand off lasted about an hour, every time he got out of the car we just pulled our position back a few metres. He didn't want to look like a knob chasing us down the street again! haha.

Eventually he gets out, grabs his gear and starts packing up. we were laughing and shouting at him, we waited until he got all his gear into the car and started driving. We then started walking back to our car which we had hidden a few streets away. THe guy pulls up to us and winds down the window

speed camera guy - 'i've taken ur photos'

-big fkn deal....what are you going to do with it? go pull urself over it? whats my name then??? you cant do shit u rodent

speed camera guy - 'awww well......but....err...

-dont come back into our area u scumbag

speed camera guy - 'i'm coming back tonight'

-yeah?? where abouts we'll make sure we come down aswell

at which point he started to drive off as we were pissing ourselves laughing. in the hour or a bit longer we must of cheated him out of say 50 or more people doing a couple of kays over the limit... how much is a fine these days? $150? , well 50x$150 = $7500+ dollars loss to the speed camera guy. I felt like a modern day Robin Hood - stealing from the rich and giving to the poor! I bet he got his arse kicked when he went back to head office they probably thought he was sitting on his arse all day doing nothing!

The best thing about it is that its not illegal! haha. Next time i have nothing better to do and i come across one of those revenue raising bastards i'll be sure to pull over and give him a hard time.

LMAO i did something similar but not as funny or drastic :)

Every now and then theres a camera setup on east boundary rd in east bentleigh... so i have a sign i made up saying SPEED CAMERA SETUP AHEAD!!! SLOW DOWN!!! and stappled it to a post right next to the road just down from the car.

i do it everytime i see a camera setup and now carry spare ones in the car with tape and a stapler so i can do the same :D

hahahaha thats great.... and saving lives not revune raising if more people did this in their spare time we would have less speeding on the roads as people would slow down and check their speed if they lose attention of their speed, instead of having to dig into their pockets which dont sotp them anyway... good work guys....

Inark can we get a template of ya sign lol...

Oh i cant believe i missed that..... I drove to my GF place about an hour after he must have left.... i would have definately given you guys money.... or even manned the other side of the camera..... we should pass the word round so that maybe in the future, when smackies need change for their hit they could do speed camera blockades for tips instead of messing with your windscreen at the lights (usually just after you have washed it)!!!!!

brilliant, always wanted to do that, just never had the time too...

and what Troy did too, wanted to pull over in front of the camera so it blocks its view...

A mate saw one about 1/2 a km from his house, when he got home, he walked back to it, (no one in the car) turned the box around in front of the car - its the flash i think? i thought that was great as well....

I agree, the more people that do it, the more people it will give the idea to and hopefully end up with speed cameras being marked...

But i don't think i would of run away when the speed camera guy ran towards you... like you said what can they do? just sit there and laugh at him - they are just private citizens aren't they?

hmm its illegal to flash your lights for no reason isnt it?

I think they get you for using high beams in a built up area / within 200m of other traffic...

The trick is to say it wasn't your high beams, it was your low beams, and you just switched them on then off to confirm they were working...

Theres a road in Perth where there is ALWAYS speed cameras set up, directly infront of a huge tree (so the camera is harder to see as it blends in)

So someone painted the bottom of the tree white and wrote "phuck off cops"

Apparently the police painted it brown again... so the person came back and did it... again and again and again

My brothers mates were walking past a speed camera car and came up with a BRILLIANT idea to sneek up and pinch the guys rear number plate... The took off back home and grab a 10mm socket and 1 guy went behind the car and unscrewed his plates whilst my brother and another mate went to the guys passenger window where he was sitting and had a chat to him for a few minutes about how it all works and how to calibrate the machine and blah blah blah... Troy snuck off with the number plate and my brother and his other mate said goodbye to the loser in the car and walked back home...

Then the fun started, they put the speed camera cars number plate on Troys HSV clubsport and went past the camera car doing 100kmh in a 60kmh zone and a few different speeds...

The guy would have been real pleased with a good days work having caught a clubsport doing multipule passes infront of his camera... he would have been rubbing his hands together with all the money he made untill he found out it was his number plates.... Hahaha Speed camera guys as the devil.... Just fark off

    • I'm in the market for 370GT.  I live in Canberra and not much available so I'm looking interstate.  Can anyone recommend an inspection service with expert knowledge of Skylines? Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide (Elizabeth area)
    • A million years later, searching for something else I posted, I was reminded of this thread. I eventually bought a new gauge. Put it in using the same probe (which has been installed the whole time stopping the exhaust gas from coming out the hole) and.... normal service has been resumed. The old gauge was definitely broken. /semi-pointless closure.
    • They're available from Nissan! I was able to buy a GTR (R33) one.. relatively* recently. Perhaps this stopped now but I bought mine ... relatively recently. I believe the 300ZX one has a different knee-point which is more rear biased, which I think the HFM one echos.
    • Hey Team, A bit to unload here. Hello from New Zealand I have a 2009 Nissan Skyline 370GT ( Type SP ) Auto 7 Speed, that I've had since 2022 and have loved the car since. Its painted in its factory QAB ( White Pearl ) with the Impul front lip and rare boot lid/spoiler with woodgrain interior. Mods since I've bought it and installed: Stillen Gen 3 Long Tube Intakes Motordyne Shockwave Catback Exhaust JDM Skyline Taillights Fake carbon spoiler and front grill ( Will be taking off.... its cringe ) VR30DETT Transmission from the Q50/Q60 to hold up to 550 Foot pounds of Torque ( 753 nm ) reliable  Currently I plan to turbo the car and have all the parts needed ( Photo Included ), I have my tuning day set on August 8th and choosing EcuTek as my tuning platform. Two of my work colleagues has their 370Z ( Manuel ) and 370GT coupe ( Type SP - Manuel ) also turbo'd and they have inspired me to get it done I have prepped quite a wee bit for this, as I had done the VR30 transmission swap over to this car so that I can achieve my HP goals without torque being an issue. I've taken quite a cautions route, as im always thinking about the safety as well as performance with my build, I'd rather do it properly and not cut corners etc etc. Any who, I've recently picked up the AutoStrada cruise control kit with all the included cables/wires/instructions. I've been hella researching around and can't find much on the integration that it has with the ECU and/or system. the only reason why im asking is, because I'm getting EcuTek and one of them RaceRom features allows the ability to switch maps via the cruise control function, which I am currently in the grey area if this would add-on via the Canbus will allow me to switch maps or have the option to use Cruise Control to begin with ( showing up on the instrument cluster to advise Cruise Control being set etc etc )  Because of my model being Type SP, Cruise Control on these models was never an option from factory unfortunately.  Anyone here that is able to shed some light on if the Cruise Control via AutoStrada gives OEM ability over the cruise control. Would love and appreciate any response and/or assistance with this, also happy to answer any question about my build and ill try pitch in where I can. Warm Regards,  
    • I thought the only (new) BM57 that was readily available was the one that was a BM57 but with the wrong bias. HFM or someone's?
