A pair of speed cameras in The Netherlands, burst into flames at around 1:30am on Wednesday. Vigilantes first used gasoline to set fire to the automated ticketing machine at Gravenweg in Eygelshoven. They later used the same technique to take out a camera at Heerenweg in Heerlenm, Blik op Nieuws reported. Police have no suspects.
