Awesome Use of SQL Injection

We don’t have a lot of speed cameras in the US, but they are a plague across Europe. While working in Switzerland, I once got a ticket for going 4 kph (2.4 mph) over the speed limit. Someone emailed me this photo, and I approve wholeheartedly.

Just in case you don’t see it the driver has replaced his license plate with a license plate number, followed with a drop database command. I’m guessing the speed cameras use OCR to get the license plate, and they probably also use a default database name from a vendor.
