Two Surrey, UK speed cameras are torched in late December.
A pair of speed cameras in Surrey, UK ended the year in flames. Last Thursday a photo ticket machine on the A217 at Reigate Hill was left "dripping with molten plastic" after being torched around midnight.
The previous Friday saw a speed camera incinerated on Brighton Road in Lower Kingswood. Surrey Safety Camera Partnership officials estimated the total damage at £25,000 and said they planned to use CCTV cameras to monitor the speed cameras.
