Dateline: Montgomery County, Maryland

A group of troubled teens are perpetrating the high-stakes license plate system to bamboozle speed cameras and frame innocent drivers.

Yes, the Montgomery County Sentinel is reporting a trend amongst Montgomery County high school students where they tape a fake license plate, printed on glossy paper and using fonts downloaded off the web, over their real license plate, to set off cameras used to catch speeding drivers. Days later, a $40 citation appears in the mail for whomever the fake plates are actually registered to.

The cameras are typically found in residential areas and school zones with a speed limit of 35 MPH or less. Teachers and fellow students have been the most popular targets. An unnamed parent said students refer to the practice as the “Pimping” game.

Yes, The Pimping Game.
 
“This game is very disturbing,” said the parent. “Especially since unsuspecting parents will also be victimized through receipt of unwarranted photo speed tickets.”

Hmmmm….you might have just touched on the real reason behind these pranks. PRANK THE PARENTS! (Not that I would advocate such behavior…I’m just sleuthing here…)
