§ Mr. Leigh
The use and advertising of such devices is already subject to a number of controls.
The use of radar speed trap detectors constitutes an offence under the Wireless Telegraph Act 1949.
Under the Vehicles (Excise) Act 1971 it is an offence to obscure the registration number of a vehicle. It is a common law offence to incite a person to commit an offence, for example, in an advertisement.104W
The British code of advertising practice, administered by the Advertising Standards Authority requires that advertisements should contain nothing which is in breach of the law.
I understand that the Department of Transport is to strengthen existing regulations to make it illegal to sell reflective number plates of the type designed to evade camera technology.
