In Macerata, Italy vigilantes grabbed a speed camera from the side of the provincial road 571 at around 6am this morning. Police arriving on the scene found glass shards on the ground from smashed lenses and the radar equipment removed from the housing, ANSA reported. Officials have no idea who was responsible.

Vigilantes in the former Soviet Republic of Latvia shot a speed camera on August 12. The automated ticketing machine had been located in Daugavpils, the second largest city next to Riga. The device, the country's only speed camera, will be repaired, TVNET reported. Police have no idea who is responsible.
