UK Speed Camera Burned, More Maryland Photos
Last week, vigilantes set fire to a Cumbria, UK speed camera. The was device located on the A590 near Witherslack in the seaside resort town of Grange-over-Sands. The attack “only” wreaked an estimated £3000 ($5200) in damage on the revenue collection safety device. Meanwhile, back In Montgomery County, Maryland, vigilantes continue to protest the use of speed cameras by writing “SCAM” in large white lettering on the street just ahead of the lucrative devices. The cameras themselves are unaffected and continue to generate revenue. At least three sites have now been targeted, with the messages “GOV. SCAM” and “ GREEDY SCAM.” P hoto s come courtesy a local activist website that does not endorse the protest tactic. “StopBigBrotherMD believes that those who feel that speed cameras are a scam should instead use legal means of expressing their frustration,” the site’s editor wrote. “That would include writing letters to the editor, writing to your state legislature, or challenging citations in court.”
These cameras are about one thing...making money. If the government really were out to "protect citizens from themselves", cars would have alcohol sensors that refuse to start the car based on the driver's health, and they would be SPEED LIMITED TO 70 MPH. An intelligent technology would change the speed limit on vehicles based on the zone they enter: 75 for highway, 30 for residential streets, 15 for narrow streets. But, I know this is coming. After all, newer cars can have their engines disabled by the police to prevent car chases LOL.
Or to be more discrete about it except the initial drill hole. Use expanding foam as it slowly destroys the insides. Or get a beater and ram it from behind.
