France, Italy, UK: Speed Cameras Topple, Injure
Speed cameras knocked over in France and Italy; camera injures boy in England.

Indre-et-Loire speed cameraIn Indre-et-Loire, France vigilantes knocked over an average speed camera on Wednesday. La Nouvelle Republique reports that the bolts securing the automated ticketing machine on the RD952 to its base were loosened and the device simply pushed over.

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.
