Thousands of drivers using illegal ‘James Bond-style rotating numberplate covers’ to avoid traffic fines
The gadgets are just like the one on the Aston MartinDB5 spy car but while drivers are using them on their own vehicles you could get TWO years in prison if caught
Thousands of British motorists have fitted James Bond-style covers to their numberplates to illegally avoid cameras, it has been claimed.
The £70 electric gadgets mimic the iconic number plate rotater used on Bond’s Aston MartinDB5 in Goldfinger.
It’s been reported that they are widely available – with hundreds estimated to have been sold in the UK just in the last few months.
But instead of dodging villains like Auric Goldfinger, modern versions are aimed at avoiding speed cameras, bus lane tickets, yellow line fines and even time limits on supermarket car parks
