Everyone hates red-light traffic cameras, and someone in Arizona decided to do something about them by re-aiming cameras at the ground.
Someone in Tucson isn't happy about the city's red-light cameras.
A vandal re-aimed most of the traffic cameras at collision-prone intersections over the weekend in an apparent attempt to keep them from snapping photos of speeders and red-light runners, an official said.
This doesn't strike me as "vandalism" since there was no damage or defacement. What this looks like to me is civil disobedience.
It would be more efficient, though, to use some sort of spraying device to shoot paint at the camera lens from the ground or from a car. Not that I'd advocate such a thing.
