Neighbourhood watchers in Reading get speedguns • The Register

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/03/08/speedcams_for_everyone/

distributed monitoring like this, with lower level law enforcement is a good thing. And it’s the exact opposite of “Big Brother”-ism. This the community acting as it’s own police force. MUCH healthier option. The more we get the State out of the loop, the better. What’s still missing from the equation is an anonymised way of sending the “You’ve been spotted speeding” warning through an Trusted Surveillance network so that the time and date of the offence is recorded on an unimpeachable audit trail which – if the offences are repeated – can be used to sustain a prosecution. Definitely, though, a step in the right direction.
