CCTV captures frustrated man attacking a speed camera


What do you do if you get a speeding ticket? Sigh, tut and hope it doesn't happen again? Maybe if you feel the fine is unfair you could appeal it. No matter what happens though, we don't recommend that you take your frustration out on the speed camera itself, as one man in Washington DC was captured doing.

CCTV footage shows the man stopping and getting out of his vehicle, which appears to be a GMC Acadia SUV. The camera, which is a standalone box rather than mounted on a pole as in the UK, is located on the divider of the highway, and the man begins to hit and kick it in an attempt to destroy it.

The footage shows the man knocking the camera over before kicking it. He managed to knock off a small attachment, which he throws across the road victoriously before getting back into the car and driving off.

Police in Washington are said to be on the hunt for the individual, so that he may be prosecuted for vandalism and criminal damage.
