Speed Camera Jammer in Court

A 68-year-old driver is on trial over his alleged use of a laser speed camera jammer that was fitted to the front of his car.

The device alerts drivers that they are being targeted by a police officer's mobile speed camera, giving them the chance to slow down, but also stops the officer from recording their speed.

The interference normally last between four and eight seconds.

Eric Craggs has been accused at Teesside Crown Court of having the jammer fitted to his Aston Martin back in 2009. He denies knowledge of the device being in place and therefore the charge of perverting the course of justice.

In reference to the speed camera operator, PC Lorraine Williams, prosecutor Andrew Walker said: "She aimed the camera at the front of the Aston Martin car with a view to record the speed. However the device could not record a speed and displayed an error code. She tried again but again an error code showed."

The officer then noticed something under the number plate of the car which turned out to be a Laserstar laser jamming device.

It was noted that PC Williams remembered another instance with the same car in 2011. The trial continues.
