"WTOPS Ari Ashe is reporting that Prince Georges County is mounting cameras to monitor its traffic cameras. This comes following a half dozen incidents of vandalism and general meanness toward the cameras in the county."
"A camera was actually shot with a gun. Another was set on fire. Those attacks mark a step up in looniness from a man who allegedly fired glass marbles at a Howard County traffic camera earlier this summer."

I just got my first in the mail a few days ago. It is infuriating, isn’t it?
George Washington would have cut them down with his sword!
Wonder who’s going to monitor the cameras monitoring the camera monitors?
I live in NC, and I must admit it is CREEPY that EVERY stop-light in the state of VA now has a camera affixed to it.
When are folks going to realize we are in the process of setting up a totalitarian-fascist state?
Every week I travel from Virginia to Maryland and back. I got two tickets for speeding in construction zones in MD. In both cases there were no workers present (rain and darkness). That’s $80 in fines. I did some research and learned that MD has a 23.5 cent per gallon gas tax. So I decided that to retaliate I would always fill up my tank in Virginia rather than buying gas in MD. That was a while ago, so I’m sure that Maryland has actually suffered a net loss of revenue as a result of my two tickets. Snicker.
Quis custodiet ipsos videocameras?
Sounds like hate crimes against cameras.
You really can't make stuff up.
Fortunately we have government and media employees to do it for us.
Actually the construction cams are times to flash at 67mph. That was posted when they went up. A friend of mone told me the other day that he was going through last week at above 67, saw the Jeep and slowed down, the guy behind him jumped lanes, flooed it and gave my friend the bird out the window, just in time for the speed cam to flash
I get a serious case of the warm fuzzies seeing that someone is fighting back against the statist swine.
Yeah, it’s kind of like seeing the scrawny kid finally sock that bully in the nose, and watching the bully run home crying.
“When are folks going to realize we are in the process of setting up a totalitarian-fascist state?”
If humans continue to be consistent... when it’s too late.
67 in a 65, or a 55?
Yeah, but - they have some things I need for work.
Too bad, but there it is.
I wonder if you could burn out the CCD with a laser?
