Speed camera crash in Italy
A speed camera van was involved in a three-car injury crash in Rome, Italy last week Monday. Il Messaggero reported that two police officers had set up a mobile speed trap at 10:30am on the Via Leone XIII. A van saw the camera and slammed on its brakes to avoid receiving a citation. The Fiat Panda following behind did not stop in time, and the resulting collision knocked one of the vehicles into the police car. Two officers were rushed to local hospitals with serious injuries.

Vigilantes in Baqaa, Saudi Arabia shot a "Saher" speed camera last week Monday, according to Erem News.
