Australia, Italy: Lightning, Shotguns Blast Speed Cameras
Lightning destroys Australian speed camera and shotgun destroys Italian photo radar.

Shotgun blasted camera
In Forli, Italy a vigilante leveled two shotgun blasts against a speed camera. The well-placed shots shattered the lenses on the automated ticketing machine and severely damaged its internal workings. Local officials upset by the loss of ticketing called said the incident was like the "Wild West," Il Resto del Carlino reported.

An act of God knocked out average speed cameras in Canberra, Australia out of commission in December. Lightning blasted not only the cameras at Hindmarsh Drive and Mugga Way but also took out pavement sensors, according to the Canberra Times. The repaired system will not be certified until late February.
