UK Speed Camera Damaged
Vigilantes damage a speed camera one year after an attack on the same location in West Sussex, UK.

Vigilantes damaged a speed camera in West Sussex, UK earlier this month. The ticketing device, located on the A259 Littlehampton Road in Ferring, was set on fire with a burning tire at 5am on September 7. Although the blaze destroyed the camera's housing, the radar and photographic machinery survived without damage.

The attack is part of an ongoing campaign against speed cameras in the area. In September 2006, the group Motorists Against Detection claimed responsibility for setting fire to the same camera housing just days after it had been installed.
