The nerdy way to avoid being caught by a speed camera is to not speed. But who wants to do that? If you're a cool kid you'll just drive so fast the camera can't see your license plate. It's theoretically possible but very difficult, according to physics students at the University of Leicester

A group of physics students calculated in their final year paper that if you drive 119 million mph, a sixth of the speed of light, a speed camera won't be able to catch you. The tricky part, of course, is finding something that can go that fast. The fastest man-made object is only capable of going one five thousandth of the speed of light.

It looks like we're stuck being nerds for a while.
