According to The Sun, there has been a 857% rise in license plate cloning. This is where criminals copy the license plate of a legitimate car and use it on their own vehicle.
Scameras are not law enforcement and just lead to problems like this.
Car cloning involves crooks using your number plate on their vehicle - usually to disguise a stolen or un-roadworthy motor.
