A guy named Dave Clark who runs a company called Road Angel claims that he's got a hefty deal brewing with an automaker to include his speed trap detectors on the optional equipment list for the unnamed maker's new fleet. Road Angel systems are already attainable through dealers, but having them pre-installed in cars is the next logical step since speed camera technology has spread throughout the UK. However, a guy named Kevin Delaney who works for a motor safety initiative called the RAC Foundations warns, "We would have no objection to these units being fitted in principle…But in a number of European countries it's illegal not only to use a detector, but even to have one installed." It may be noted that RAC's past objections have meant almost nothing to most motorists.
