War on speed cameras, literally
Found on the Drive website
Rebels attack speed cameras
A band of rebel motorists in England, Scotland and Wales have declared war on speed cameras, systematically destroying what they have dubbed "stealth tax inspectors". One camera on the M11 motorway, credited with nabbing 2000 motorists a day, was flattened after a truckie deliberately backed over it, according to police. Another was blown to pieces.
The Gatso cameras are being burnt or destroyed at a rate that is alarming police and costing nearly $60,000 a pop to replace. The rebels communicate with each other using internet chat rooms. They operate at night.
Police have offered a $5000 reward for information leading to the capture of one band of camera culprits.
