Speed Camera Maker Caught Speeding in School Zone
UK tabloid catches top speed camera executive blasting through school zones in his convertible.

Speed Check
Christopher Booy, executive director of Speed Check Services, which manufactures the SPECS digital speed camera system, was caught speeding in a school zone four times within three days. A British tabloid hired an investigator to trail Booy. The investigator used a radar gun to document Booy's Jaguar XK8 convertible doing 38-41 MPH in a 30 MPH school zone three times in less than one week. One incident happened at the time when children were being picked up at the end of the school day.

Booy reportedly reacted to the charge by saying, "Obviously, I shouldn't be speeding and, if you say I was, I probably was. That's life, I guess."
