Spain: Gunfire Destroys Speed Camera
Spanish vigilante blasts speed cameras with .22 caliber rifle.

Speed camera
A vigilante in Alicante, Spain used a rifle to blast a set of speed cameras last week. The machines had hung from a gantry high above the Avenida Caja de Ahorros in Vistahermosa ticketing the motorists below. The vigilante fired several .22 caliber rounds into the side of the device while avoiding being filmed in the act.

In total, the vigilante destroyed four ticketing machines, leaving the area with only two cameras capable of generating tickets for the local government. No witnesses have come forward to identify the vigilante and police have no leads.
