some guy just took a picture of my car on the road, speeding ticket?

i was on northbound willingdon, just over the bridge and suddenly this guy went to the middle of the road and took a picture with a digital camera, he was wearing normal clothes with a visibility vest, but no sign that says he's rcmp or anything

what was he doing? giving out tickets? is this possible? i was not even speeding

Probably just a road worker or city engineer using a break in traffic to take a picture of the street there...

No Traffic Police I know of would ever step out in plain clothes and take a photograph of some car to issue a speeding ticket. No point. Get the BCL of the vehicle and served the registered owner later. You don't need a picture. There could be thousands of legitimate reasons for somebody to take a photo of the roar. Cops have Radar and Laser...we don't need Kodak moments.

Just remember....you are NOT paranoid, IF the world really IS out to get you! That is my philosophy whenever I ride my motorcycle and it has worked so far.

I am absolutely serious.

He asked what it could be and I put an extremely valid comment based on the context of the situation.

Keep useless comments to yourself.

Do you drive something unique or have a unique body kit on your car?
It is possible the guy saw liked something on your car or your car itself and wanted to take a pic of it for that reason only. Maybe there is a thread on a forum somewhere asking "What kind of a body kit is this?" I've come across threads like that before on various forums.

Of course if you drive something totally generic like a stock Civic or Corolla that theory goes out the window and I'd have to side with CRS.
