Speed Cameras Corrupting Law Enforcement


The cover-up is always worse than the crime. Law enforcement agencies all over Europe are giving the public some pretty interesting explanations about why Photo Enforcement equipment is being attacked by arsonists. Or, as they tell it, equipment is spontaneously combusting.

In an article released by TheNewspaper.com today, many recent examples of scameras being “burned, branded and beaten” are described. From the piece:

“A speed camera car belonging to Haut-Rhin police burned to the ground in Colmar, France just after midnight on March 19. A fire had broken out and destroyed a garage filled with nine police motorcycles (BMW 1300 and Yamaha 1150 models) and eight police cars.

A team of thirty firefighters and four fire trucks struggled to extinguish the blaze before it could take out a second police garage, Dernieres Nouvelles D’Alsace reported. While police and fire inspectors blamed the incident on a “short circuit,” mobile speed cameras in at least two other recent instances have spontaneously burst into flames. A van in North Wales, UK caught fire on March 1 and another in Mount Carmel, Tennessee caught fire and burned down a barn on February 21.”

The scamera van below must have just short circuited as well and backed into a retainer wall at a high rate of speed.

  5. Funny how it’s been several years without a van fire and now suddenly 3 of them happen in just a few weeks. Coincidence?

      “..a common byproduct of photo red light programs is…”

      What a bunch of hucksters..

      Why even bother going on camera to defend their lies. Redflex should start packing their bags for California now; because apparently law enforcement there is not only in their pocket, but willing to make moral compromises in their duties protecting the people they claim to serve.

      And again they ignore factors like traffic volume. Has it gone up or down? If accidents increased only slightly but traffic volumes were down, then the increase wasn’t slight! And again, they focus only on the year before and the year after the cameras… what about the previous 10 years? It’s not unusual to have an abnormally safe or dangerous year from time to time. They never want to provide the complete picture… what’s worse is that the council members never demand it.

    Reminds me of the idiots running Peoria.

    LA is going by this philosophy: Keep telling the same lies often enough using public figures who claim to be looking out for the citizen’s rights and eventually the citizens will believe them. NOT!!!
