The radars are being tested, and they say the technology is accurate, with virtually no margin for error. They can even detect the car in unfavorable weather conditions. However, there are certain cases that may leave some doubt about its reliability. The question always remains: Is it possible to photograph a dog behind the wheel of a car at high speed?
Radars pick up everything... even strange things
A man was fined in Slovakia after a traffic camera captured a dog behind the wheel of his car at high speed.
According to what the Slovak police posted on its Facebook page, this unusual incident was proven by an incriminating photo of the animal behind the wheel with its eyes firmly fixed on the road in front of it.
Despite the fine, the Slovak police saw the funny side, so they posted on Facebook an imaginary conversation between a dog and a law enforcement officer.
Wasn't it a montage?
Slovak police insist there is no Photoshop or artificial intelligence fraud in the photo. Adding that the police officers “could not believe their eyes.”
Instead of the driver's photo, the brown hound smiled beautifully at the camera, obediently sitting behind the steering wheel of a Skoda and looking through the windshield at a promising young deer.
We foiled his plans to hunt down the furry boy and put an end to his wanderings on the farm.
Jokes aside, the Slovak police condemned the “irresponsible driver” who was stopped for speeding in the village of Sterosi.
second InformationThe car was traveling at a speed of 11 kilometers per hour, exceeding the speed limit, and the 31-year-old driver explained that his pet dog - named Haveno - suddenly jumped into his lap.
But when the police returned the images taken by the radar, they did not notice any sudden movement in the car, so the driver was fined for violating traffic rules.
Slovak police have advised drivers transporting dogs to be extremely careful with them.
Even a small animal can put your life and health at risk while driving.
The police add.
According to a 2019 study conducted by Volvo Cars USA, drivers who do not restrain their dogs in their cars are more likely to lose concentration while driving due to their pets’ behavior.
The researchers found that the number of cases... The driver's attention was diverted from the road by 137%. When dogs are not properly secured in cars.
