The clever thing is that because Bill Angus is a former policeman he is probably very familiar with those minor safety concerns so he’ll have put the “camera” just inside the boundary of his garden and high enough to avoid bashing your head, actually there is a real danger that a square cornered box at head height could take out the eye of the unobservant pedestrian, we all fail to notice these sorts of dangers. With my designer’s hat on it was one of the first things I looked for when I saw the photos. Also he’s obviously observed carefully the appearance of real speed cameras, maybe he’s worked with them. The box and pole are very convincing if you don’t look too closely.
