    Australia: Speed Camera Blasted by Gunfire
    Freeway speed camera in Victoria, Australia is badly damaged by
    gunfire.

    A speed camera on the West Gate Freeway in Victoria, Australia
    sustained severe damage early Tuesday morning from high-powered
    gunfire that shattered the camera's lens and riddled its housing with
    bullet holes. Officials estimate the damage at A$40,000.

    The device had been controversial even before it was turned on. In
    November, passing motorists threw trash, fruit and other objects at
    the workmen who were installing the camera. "It took days for the
    guys to put up the cameras as cherry-pickers had to be used and the
    lanes closed," Altona North police Sgt Ian Vistarini told the Herald
    Sun.

    Police are collecting ballistic evidence but have no suspects.
