What's the best way to destroy a speed camera?

Hi

No point in doing them unless they have a camera in them. Builders foam is meant to work well. Sandtex over the lense should work well as well (scratch the lense to pieces when they try and whipe it off). Fibre glass filler in the lock should stop them opening it. Those that use inductive loops in the road can have the wires cut.

Still think what is really needed is a way to trigger them without speeding. That way when they have to manually check dozens of pictures in the hope that one is actually of someone speeding they will soon become uneconomic.

All the best

A positive attitude will not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Can't you do that by whirling a paint tin around your head on the end of a length of rope? Or is that an urban myth? Can't say I've ever actually tried it.

id rather burn the buggers to the ground..... considered learning a bit about explosives? i heard sulphuric acid (weedkiller) and sugar is a good one


For fuck's sake sheppy take care now I used to fuck around with crowies ( rookers etc ) industrial bangers for those not in the know avaliable from SCATS ( farmers supply shop )shops called bird scarer ropes, each rope has 16 "bangers on it which can be removed and lit seperatley ( manafacturer says don't ) 1cm dia by about 6 cm long 1 will shred an empty beer can or blow a milk bottle to pieces with a good 15 to 20 meter shrapnell range.
One of these went off whilst I was holding it splitting the flesh off my thumb and fore finger ( I could see my thumb bone !! )and causing hearing damage.
Took me 2 months to heal, if i'd had it in my fist I'd be typing 1 handed now.

Fucked over by the establishment..

How about a large roket launched along the road could be worth a try.
Or Take down the reg plate of that twat cop chief with the speeding daughter hire the relevant car make new rear reg plate with works industrial printer attach ( firmly ) to rented car let the speeding comence, if enough people do it at the same time all around the country the press will have a FIELD DAY and EL NOBO will resign his post outof frustation (hopefully )

How about using compensation culture? Ring the council in charge of the cameras in your area and tell them you saw someone with a hacksaw trying (or appearing to try) to saw the camera down. Obviously you are concerned that if it falls into the road it may cause a HORRENDOUS pile up causing much death and mayhem and now that you have reported it, they have a responsibility to take the camera away for stress testing to make sure it is safe to use in the public arena. A couple of scratches from a blade on a stick should do the job.


Personally nothing on this planet would make me happier than to be given an RPG licence for a week and a chauffer.

use a paint ball gun (with a laser pointer) or bug sprayer or a battery driven sprayer, may take some experimentation but it would be fun. fill the sprayer with anything latex (so you can remove it from your cloths etc), paint or lacquer. translucent lacquer would not be immediately apparent but confuse the optics to phuck the final image. there is a water based contact adhesive that is noticeable effective for this application in that it takes a lot of effort to clean.

in one evening you could do the whole town for the weekend.

My personal reccomendation thermite that should cause some permanent damage.

Oh, and the camera vans and most probably now all the GATSOs are operated by civvies, so none of this 'should be out catching real criminals' guilt trip is going to wash.

Or burgle the building that contains the calibration certificates...

I speed, therefore I am.

You just beat me to it with thermite!

Kiwi show polish tin full of thermite placed on top of the unit. Ignite and walk away.

I've always wanted to do this, but never had the guts!

It's used to weld rails together. Pretty powerful stuff.

The kids round here keep sticking empty take-away cartons over the lense of one of them...stays like it for a week or so at a time The other one in town was apparently reversed into by something large and pointed at the floor for a good month or so. Took them ages to get it sorted.

Camera round my way has a control box on the ground full of electonics, was tempted to bang a spike into the lid an turn a dead car battery upside down on it an let the acid do the work, could be expensive to fix after that :smoke:

Dammit work why don't you....

Think I am with Riz for this one. Leave them where they are, and don't do fek all with them.

I'd rather know where a camera is rather than have suprise mobile units all over the place, that's what got me.

If you get caught on a stationary gatso your observation is crap, and you have yourself to blame. I only got caught by Mr Mobile as he was hiding behind the doorway to a bloody library in direct sunlight - the bastard. Show me a gatso that is in a library doorway!! Still, I chose to speed, and I got done - and I took the NIP on the chin.

Really, if you don't want to get caught, don't speed - it's that simple. If you speed then take the NIP and STFU!

The idea of burning them down or whatever does sound attractive, but no point in doing just 1 or 2, you need to do it en-mass for it to be effective.

However, Yorick, you don't honestly beleive the comment you posted about freeing up police time do you!

Cameras are here to stay. Deal with it.

Meant to work, but rather too obvious.

The fun of having vehicles set them off when not speeding is that they would have to check every single set of photographs manually with the lines on the road, and any they didn't check first could easy be proven to be false in court, thus bringing the whole system into total disrepute.

All the best

Most of these require access at height, which I suspect is why they don't happen. Only projectile weapons or superglue don't need this, so they're probably the best methods if you seriously want to do this

Would be interested in how many are willing to actually do so however, rather than just talk about it

Where's the fun in that? :burnout:

Superglue can be dissolved with acetone. Titanium putty however is much more challenging.

The video clips on that Thermite site are excellent.


Oh, and to all you Gatso lovers.........Baaaaaaaaaaa!


Just found THERMITE GRENADE

Soon, they will have cameras to protect the cameras against destruction, and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and then cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras to protect the cameras and so on until we will not even know which camera is going to give us the NIP!!!

Ha -- you have done me the favour of underestimating my ignorance.
