An automated ticketing machine was rendered inoperable over the weekend, CameraFRAUD has learned.
The Redflex device, located on the AZ-51, appears to have been covered with black paint in a photo submitted to us by a reader:
“…Had to double back to get this. It would have almost been impossible to see the damage if it weren’t for the overspray on the front housing.”
No word on if the cameras that watch the cameras were able to give police any hints as to who the culprit may be.
Arizona’s beleaguered “photo enforcement” system has been rendered inoperable with post-it notes, silly string, sledgehammers, pick-axes, spray paint, large rocks, spare tires, as well as two acts(1) of God(2) .
Other recent worldwide incidents include stickers, paintball guns, jack handles, fire, spray paint (again), baseball bats, fire (again), and our favorite: theft— by speed camera employees / contractors.
Who would have thought.
