Speeding tickets from Outer Space?!?

Seems a bit much to me......

England has begun testing satellite-based speed cameras capable of recording average speeds and reading license plates from space.

The system - called “SpeedSpike” - figures your average speed between two points, captures an image of your license plate and reports you if you’re going faster than the law allows. Oh, and if you’re hoping Great Britain’s notoriously gray weather will save you, you’re out of luck; the system works even when it’s cloudy or dark.

How many people died in Britain last year from a speeding related accident to warrant speeding ticket robots from outer space?
