New Zealand, The Netherlands: Speed Camera Programs Attacked
New Zealand speed camera propaganda blasted with shotgun while Dutch camera pole is decapitated.

Vigilantes attacked a newly installed speed camera in Baexem, The Netherlands on Thursday. The automated ticketing machine had been installed on the N280 on June 24. According to local police, vigilantes decapitated the device, but only 5500 euros (US $6900) in damage was done because the camera and electronics had not yet been installed inside the housing.

In Wanganui, New Zealand, vigilantes took out a billboard meant to justify the use of speed cameras in the area. The advertisement showed a police officer holding a camera with the caption, "How fast are you going?" Residents responded by hurling bottles and bricks on at the sign. According to the Wanganui Chronicle, the sign was blasted by gunfire on several occasions. Officials finally agreed to remove it last week.
