A Low-Tech Response to High-Tech Gov’t Snoopery


speed camera vandalism

This traffic camera, supposedly in Wicomico County, Maryland, was spray-painted over the lens and tagged with the year 1776, the year the U.S. declared its independence. (Photo via SBY News)

Now, I’m not suggesting criminal property violence is a solution to techno-fascism…

But, it warms my heart to see people taking up arms spray paint in defense of their privacy and Fourth and Sixth Amendment rights!  Other street cameras next?  You didn’t hear it from me.

  1. Oh! Don’t EVEN get me started on traffic cameras…..

    (insert long rant here)

    Anyway, the Tempe traffic cameras were always vandalized with regularity, along with messages like “Fraud” and such. I think Tempe has now discontinued their program.

  2. There’s at least one website in the UK showing the location of traffic cams, and the vandalism there is becoming a cult legend. One typical act is to hang a tire, er, tyre filled with petrol around the camera & set it ablaze. Apparently not all Brits are the socialist fodder we’ve been told about. 🙂

  3. As if traffic in Prescott wasn’t bad enough, last time I drove up there people slowed to 10 UNDER the speed limit when approaching one. I can understand not wanting a ticket but you CAN go as fast as the black & white sign says is allowed.

    Reminder to any who would try to mess with one – those cameras run video.
    Wear a disguise and don’t drive your vehicle through the area of interest.

    • There’s a story on the ‘Net. about a guy who kept running who kept driving by, and getting ‘lit up’, but was well under the posted limit.
      He went around the block numerous times, thinking he could fight it.
      Turned out the pix were for seat belt violations!
