Last week Mr Monkey revealed that South Tyneside Council is to introduce a mobile CCTV enforcement unit in a bid to raise yet more revenue from the hard pressed motorist. CLICK HERE.
Apparently they took delivery of a vehicle fitted with CCTV camera in late October but it turned out to be the wrong colour – it was black. The vehicle has now been resprayed white and will be unleashed on the unsuspecting motorist in the new year.
Mr Monkey can now reveal that the vehicle designed to trap the borough’s motorists is a white Smart car and been fitted with a specially designed periscope complete with a CCTV camera.
It will initially be used to catch motorists who drive, park or block bus lanes but Mr Monkey reckons it’s only a matter of time before it patrols the borough enforcing anything that can generate more money for the greedy bastards in the town hall.
