Threats halt car pool vigilante site
I found a rather amusing story about a website which put up pictures of lone commuters in California using the lane reserved for car-pools - until it was taken down following threatening emails. Over here we don’t have a car pool system the same way they seem to in America (the term does not exist here, for one thing), let alone lanes reserved for them on the motorways, which for the most part don’t run into urban areas here anyway. When I first read this article I thought this was a great idea, but on second thoughts, supposing someone submits pictures of offences which have already been prosecuted, or faked pictures? Perhaps these types of public humiliation cams aren’t such a good thing after all.
