Australia: Speed Camera Blasted by Gunfire
Freeway speed camera in Victoria, Australia is badly damaged by
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
Police are collecting ballistic evidence but have no suspects.
