<A HREF="http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/29/2912.asp" TITLE="Read More: Smashed camera in Poland"><IMG SRC="http://www.thenewspaper.com/rlc/pix/plblind.jpg" ALT= "Smashed camera in Poland" HEIGHT="140" WIDTH="190" ALIGN="RIGHT" BORDER="1"></A>Speed cameras around the world faced a variety of attacks last week. In Kuwait City, Kuwait yesterday vigilantes shot and destroyed the automated ticketing machine on Al-Abdali Road, <a href="http://www.alwatan.com.kw/Default.aspx?tabid=57&article_id=538403">Al-Watan Daily</a> reported. <br><br>Likewise in Fivizzano, Italy, vigilantes blasted a pair of speed cameras with a shotgun on Monday. The devices had issued tickets on Highway 62 in Villafranca, <a href="http://iltirreno.gelocal.it/dettaglio/articolo/1726918">Il Tirreno</a> reported. Since the devices are located away from an urban area, police have no idea who might be responsible.<br><br>In Arrach, Germany vigilantes did not directly attack a speed camera. Instead, they eliminated a favorite hiding spot where police staged their mobile speed cameras behind a set of trees. When police arrived on the scene early last Tuesday, they found the three trees at the entrance to Seepark-Parkplatz had been cut down, leaving them with no place to hide, the <a href="http://www.mittelbayerische.de/region/cham/cham/artikel/wo_laserpistole_stand_fielen_b/460837/wo_laserpistole_stand_fielen_b.html">Mittelbayeris che newspaper</a> reported. Police have no suspects.<br><br>Vigilantes set fire to a speed camera in Pomerania, Poland last Sunday. The device on the route between Chojnice and Czluchow was set on fire around 6am, <a href="http://wiadomosci.wp.pl/kat,12591,title,Spalil-fotoradar-za-zdjecie,wid,11518479,wiadomosc_prasa.html?ticaid=1 8d1e">Polska Dziennik Baltycki</a> reported. Automated ticketing machines in the area generally issue citations at a rate of 200 per day. This device will be out of commission until its pole and internal wiring can be replaced.<br><br>While Polish police have no suspects in the firebombing attack, they did catch a suspect who destroyed a speed camera in the town of Nysa just after 11pm last Tuesday. Police accused a 32-year-old man of smashing the lens of the photo radar unit on Pilsudski Street. <A HREF="http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/29/2912.asp#source" TITLE="Read Source: ">Source</A>
