Don't worry about those fast motorists, most of them have gps navigation or
a agps phone we track them all the time through the phone basestations,
those people driving 100mph are easy to track with phone triangulation,
what's great in the office is you can tell who is cloning cars if their
mobiles are registered to different addresses from the cars, we have a very
good idea of the network of plate cloners who typically photo cars to clone
in london. The other day foreign blokes were filmed in Mayfair photoing a
black golf gti and them getting a plate copy, the garage was secretly
filmed, and they were caught in their golf doing 130 on the M1, they all
were totally got. We had a track of 3 phones going up the M1, tonnes of
video evidence etc..
Sounds like someone's full of sh*t!!
The police can not track a car through its own sat nav. I think your getting
confused with navigation units and gps tracking units (Tracker Horizon,
NavTrak, etc). And mobile phones use gprs which is nothing to do with GPS.
However, any mobile can be traced to within about 10 meters of its location.
It does take about 6 weeks to get all the paper work necessary to initiate a
trace though. And most criminals use Pay-as-you-go phones so no address can
be linked to their phone. A word of warning. If you get caught doing 159mph
you'll probably go to prison for a few months. The authorities could also
confiscate your car! SO DON'T GET CAUGHT!!!!
It's true. In the UK we have a great justice system. If you steel some ones
car and burn it out in the middle of a kids playground you're made to go
stock car racing at weekends and given a Playstation. If you work your nuts
off 5 days week to save up for something nice, then get caught doing 150+
mph in it, you go to prison for 4 months. Lose your driving licence for 3
years. Lose your job, house, possibly your family too. Ah. British Justice!
200mph? aiaiai niiiice as for jail, I know of four Canadians who were jailed for
a week or so for going over (not much) 100mph in
Washington. One friend was stopped at about 95mph, put in the cop cruiser and
handcuffed, and told that one more mile and he'd be
off to jail. I wouldn't take chances if I were you. And there'd be nothing left
of your car after the impound guys were finished
