11/23/2015France, Italy: Speed Cameras Mocked
Speed cameras are mocked in France and smashed in Italy last week.
French comic Remi Gaillard on Thursday released a second YouTube video taunting speed camera operators (view the video). While encouraging passing vehicles to speed, Gaillard positioned a woman in a bikini, a married couple and a soccer team in front of the automated ticketing machine so that they would appear in photographs, instead of nearby automobiles.
In Orte, Italy, vigilantes smashed a decoy speed camera on Tuesday. The Viterbo News reports that the orange plastic housing of the Velo OK brand unit was snapped in two.
