4/29/2012DC, New Mexico, France: Speed Cameras Marked, Attacked
Vigilantes strike at photo enforcement devices in DC, New Mexico and France.
Another speed camera van in New Mexico has come under attack not long after a man in a nightgown shot at an automated ticketing machine with a handgun. On Monday, a vigilante in Rio Rancho hurled rocks at a photo radar SUV and rammed it with the edge of a ladder, KOAT-TV reported. The vehicles are owned and operated wholly by Redflex Traffic Systems, an Australian company.
In Washington, DC a vigilante used spraypaint last week to warn motorists at two of the sneakiest traffic camera locations in the city, WUSA-TV reported. Recently installed cameras have been particularly hard to spot as the city's vendor, American Traffic Solutions, used low-profile cameras designed to look like ordinary utility boxes concealed behind trees and other objects. The vigilante marked the area before the cameras with large orange X on Missouri Avenue and South Dakota Avenue marks to let drivers know the ticketing machine was ahead.
In Saint-Remy, France vigilantes set fire to a speed camera on the RN80 at around 12:30am on Tuesday. The automated ticketing machine was completely destroyed, Le Journal de Saone et Loire reported.
