8/8/2006UK: Another Cambridge Speed Camera Torched
A second speed camera in the Cambridge, UK area has been destroyed by fire within a week.
A speed camera in the market town of March in Cambridgeshire, UK was torched around 10pm on Sunday. Firefighters arrived on the scene and were able to extinguish the blaze by 10:45pm. Motorists Against Detection (MAD) claimed responsibility for an attack last Friday on another Cambridge camera.
"It was sited for revenue, as are most of the speed cameras in the UK," the group's leader told the East Anglian Daily Times. "They are just cash machines by the road side that lose people their licenses and their livelihoods."
