Maryland, France, Germany: Speed Cameras Shoved, Shot, Spraypainted
Vigilantes disable speed cameras in France, Germany and Centreville, Maryland.

Berlin speed camera crash
A police officer rammed a speed camera in Berlin, Germany last week Sunday. According to Bild, the patrol van was involved in an accident with another vehicle and spun into the camera mounted on a traffic island.

In Centreville, Maryland, vigilantes on August 31 kicked over two speed cameras set up on Railroad Avenue, the Easton, Maryland Star Democrat reported. Both automated ticketing machines were unable to issue tickets until they were readjusted on September 2. Police have no idea who might be responsible.

In St. Gerand-le-Puy, France, vigilantes shot a speed camera on the RN7, hitting it three times according to La Montagne. Also on Monday, a pair of speed cameras in Brittany were disabled. Ouest France reports that the automated ticketing machines on the N165 in Kervignac and on the D769 in Cleguer were spraypainted orange. In Condezaygues, green was the color of choice on Tuesday as vigilantes disabled the automated ticketing machine for the third time this year, according to Sud Ouest.
