    Saw it today on Ipswich road just off the A12 into Colchester, had to stop and take a photo :D




    Pity they didn't use building foam, not quite sure what they used, similar to shaving foam I think, but no doubt it has buggered it up good and proper :D

    looks like standard foam rather than expanding foam sprayed inside.

    no doubt we will see people saying that topgear is again being silly and promoting braking the law etc etc

    Ohh the anti-speed freaks will love him for that.

    I actually have access to lots of that foam, but there aren't any silly cameras near me. Plus I kinda like freedom. :p

    The expanding foam trick has been around for years, it's not Top Gear's fault!

    We filled a whole car up with expanding foam once hoping that the windows would explode. Took about 5 gallons of liquid, quickly mix in the activator in half a drum, slam the door and RUN :D

    Didn't explode though which was disappointing :mad:

    A speed camera can only "Cash In" if you speed past it....or is it really that difficult to understand?

    Sorry to pick on you mate but why do you have to quote the whole post?! Sorry again - it's just a bit annoying when you have to scroll all the way down past the pictures again...

    I'd have been worried someone may have seen you take the pics and assume you had done it ;)

    Speed cameras, in many cases, are placed in positions purely as a revenue-generating device and have naff all to do with road safety...or is that really that difficult to understand?

    Quick question for you stoofa - who is the more dangerous? Me, doing 85mph on a motorway concentrating on driving or someone I saw yesterday, doing 15mph in a 30 with a mobile phone glued to her ear? Because a speed camera would only be catching one of us.....

    Oh how I love speed cameras. They catch tired drivers, disqualified drivers, uninsured drivers, drunk drivers, drugged drivers, drivers with mobile phones etc :rolleyes:
