The technology war between the speeding motorists and police still goes on. Each side are trying to upgrade their electronic gadgets in order to gain advantage of the situation. Law enforcers on the road are now using faster vehicles and even motorbikes to trail on speeding motorists to issue tickets for violating the law that sets a prescribed maximum speed when running on a particular road.

Based on the images captured by these cameras, traffic enforcers can easily decide on issuing traffic violation tickets to violators. These technologies intensify the thrill of the cat-and mouse game played by traffic enforcers and motorists.
Motorists on the other hand are also using gadgets and electronic devices to detect radars and cameras used by traffic enforcers. These tools recognize the presence of radars and red-light cameras in areas traveled by the vehicle so as to avoid getting nabbed for over speeding. Some of these gadgets are commercially distributed and costs a few hundred dollars.
