Also, it's not illegal to shoot these photos, and to avoid even arguing if said exception applied or not it's perfectly fine to publish these photos with the faces of the driver and the occupant(s) blurred.

Finally, speed cameras et al can be a legal issue for other reasons than mentioned above. Authorities surely don't publish these photos to the public.

Sorry all for digressing a bit here.

Best regards,
Sounds good to me.... as I said I have no idea but that was what I was told by someone (as we discussed before).
