Vigilantes in Lincolnshire, England attacked a speed camera at around 3am, according to local police. The automated ticketing machine had been operating on Skellingthorpe Road. Officials have no suspects.

In Etain, France a speed camera was rammed at 3:15am on Tuesday, Est Republicain reported. Located at the entrance to the town, the device has become a popular target. It has been battered and spraypainted six times in the past six months.
