“A driver who flipped the bird at a traffic camera is about to be a jailbird.

A court in England has sentenced Timothy Hill, 67, to eight months in prison after he was caught using an illegal laser jammer to avoid speeding tickets.”

Timothy Hill, laser speed trap jammer and moron.

Timothy Hill, radar speed trap jammer and moron.

OK, Timothy Hill is an idiot. And probably not a very nice person. Speeding is not OK, and being rude to law enforcement is stupid. But eight months in jail? When Yorkshire police apparently don’t have time to investigate burglaries, common assaults or the mass rape of teenage girls? Something is very wrong here.

We all know resources are limited. Please, police – priorities!
