    Another unrecognisable image.

    Why do they degrade the image so much if they really want the public to identify people? The simple answer must be that they don’t.

    If CCTV was that bad, nobody would waste money on it.

    If you get done for speeding the cctv image is perfect, how about using same technology in street cctv.

      Speed cameras only have to watch a very small, limited field (1 lane wide, known distance from camera). They can be dialled in very tightly and are not likely to have uneven lighting in such a small area. They can also have better hoods/surrounds to protect them from the elements without spoiling the picture.
      By contrast, these images above are cropped down from much larger areas of street, which compromises their resolution. Worse, the lighting is more likely to be poor (uneven, too dark, glare) in the area of interest.
      The image on the left has had sharpening done, but is clearly cropped in a lot. On the right the low contrast and smearing indicate the lens has crud on it (to be expected from sea spray given the location, can happen in hours in poor weather even, to my SLR on a walk).
