Originating from Wootton High School, the parent said, students duplicate the license plates by printing plate numbers on glossy photo paper, using fonts from certain websites that “mimic” those on Maryland license plates. They tape the duplicate plate over the existing plate on the back of their car and purposefully speed through a speed camera, the parent said. The victim then receives a citation in the mail days later.

Students are even obtaining vehicles from their friends that are similar or identical to the make and model of the car owned by the targeted victim, according to the parent.

Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t advocate breaking the law, and that includes speeding. Still, I can’t help but chuckle at what these kids are doing. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I don’t think they should be severely reprimanded, because they should be. They need to have a very stern talking-to indeed, if you ask me.
