UK: Speed Camera Destroyed Seven Times
The Flax Bourton camera near Bristol, UK has been destroyed a seventh time.

UK vigilantes have destroyed replacement speed cameras installed in a single location a total of seven times. A ticketing device located at the A370 at Flax Bourton near Bristol was torched this week soon after having been replaced from a prior successful attack. In addition to destruction by fire, the device has also been rammed and destroyed by heavy digging machinery. Motorists Against Detection (MAD) took credit for this and the majority of previous attacks.

"This camera has and will continue to be targeted until it is removed once and for all," MAD's leader, Captain Gatso, wrote.
