Dazzled Speed Camera

One of my interests is camouflage, particularly when applied to vehicles - even as a 'high-viz' colour scheme!

The use of 'dazzle' patterns is fairly well known, it was featured recently on TV (James May) if I remember correctly.

Dazzle works in a couple of ways: first it breaks up the outline of the painted object, then it causes confusion.

One of the original ways it was used was on warships, to prevent submarine captains easily identifying which way the ship was heading so that torpedo aiming and timing became more difficult.

But the latest picture I've seen is of something far more 'everyday', a speed camera enclosure!

Oh - for another twist on dazzle, read here
