In Trescore Balneario, Italy, vigilantes eliminated two out of three Velo OK brand speed cameras less than four days after they were installed on provincial road 89, according to L'Eco di Bergamo. On Friday two of them were knocked over.
After failing to prevent an accident last week Sunday, a speed camera injured a five-year-old boy in London, England. The Hackney Gazette reports that at half past midnight, a speed camera and a car collided, resulting in serious injuries. The boy was taken to the Royal London Hospital.
