In Cavagnolo, Italy, vigilantes last week Tuesday uprooted the speed camera on the Statale 590 and tossed it in a nearby field, Torin Oggi reported. In Castelfranco Veneto, signs were hung on a non-functional speed camera last week Saturday alerting motorists that the device would not be issuing a ticket, according to Treviso Today.
