Man Uses Permanent Marker to Fool Photo Radar

A 44-year-old Arizona man allegedly tried to fool the photo radars that record a vehicle’s speed. It worked for a while — until the police caught up with him.

Timothy Welsh allegedly used a permanent marker to change both the 3 and the 9 on his license plate to an 8, so when his vehicle got nabbed for speeding, the ticket was sent to someone else, reported.

Welsh allegedly was going 14 mph over the speed limit and would have had to pay a $175 fine, but now, he’s facing a $1,500 fine and up to a year in jail.

Let’s hope the judge makes him pay accordingly.
