What is a unique job that exists only in your country?

Tehran traffic authorities have introduced restrictions on the amount of cars on its roads in attempt to reduce congestion and pollution in Tehran downtown.

They did this by adopting odd-even traffic restriction on alternative days. Cars with number plates ending with odd numbers were restricted one day and the next day cars with number plates ending with even numbers were restricted.

Since they have started using traffic cameras to check the car plate numbers, a new strange job has formed. I don't know what they are called exactly because I do not live in Tehran myself, but you can easily find them on the less crowded streets which connects to the restricted area. They get money from you before you approach the traffic camera and just walk behind your car while you drive slowly.

Professional car plate number blockers!

I think this happens only in Tehran. Some people get paid to walk behind your car, so the traffic cameras can not capture your plate number when you enter the restricted traffic areas!

I don't think the same job exist anywhere else. If yes, please let me know.

Some people are not willing to pay, so they apply different tricks themselves. Here is an example video: ترفندهای عبور از دوربین طرح ترافیک
