> Legal notices with potentially serious consequences being sent by scripts

The French tried this about ten years ago when they installed fixed speed cameras on their autoroutes. Soon enough someone pointed out that, because the fines were being processed and sent automatically without human intervention, and since machines do not have legal personality, the process was entirely devoid of legal consequence.

No idea whether this relates in anyway to the case at hand, but thought I would mention it anyway, for trivia's sake.
