impersonating a traffic camera?

found on boing boing

this is, of course, prank (and a pretty funny one at that). but it's a prank where the prankster is posing as something that's supposed to represent authority. the authorities don't take kindly to people impersonating them or anything connected to them - the opportunities to damage their credibility is too great.

of course, in some countries, the authorities are quite proficient at damaging their own credibility.
