Cyprus: Three Speed Cameras Damaged, Destroyed
Paint marred one speed camera and motorists crashed into two others over the weekend in the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus.

Cyprus
A trio of speed cameras in the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus were damaged or destroyed over the weekend. In Larnaca, paint was poured over one camera obscuring its lens. Cars crashed into a pair of cameras in Nicosia, knocking them out of commission.

The Cyprus speed camera system has been plagued with difficulties. Most recently the contractor that installed the units put them on the wrong side of the road because it did not realize motorists in the country drive on the left-hand side of the road. The system will start with 32 fixed cameras and 8 mobile units expanding eventually to 450 throughout the island.
