6/1/2015France, Italy: Speed Cameras Toppled, Tarred
Italian speed cameras are knocked over while a French device is covered in tar.
Vigilantes in Castellamonte, Italy knocked over several speed camera housings last week. The bright orange "Velo OK" devices were empty at the time, so they toppled easily with a light push, according to Quotidiano del Canavese. On Sunday, a housing was knocked over on the Via Barengon in Sant'Antonio. Last week Saturday, a housing on the state road 460 in Rivarolo was kicked over.
In Limoux, France, vigilantes tarred a speed camera on Wednesday, La Depeche reported. The automated ticketing machine on the RD118 was covered from top to bottom in a thick black substance that prevented the device from issuing citations.
