Who ever you are, well done for fighting back at the establishment which seeks to milk us for every penny we've got (and expects us to keep handing it over without question). We all know these cameras are no longer about safety, but about raising cash and oppressing the electorate. What a scam!!
There's a massive difference between speeding safely and speeding in dangerous conditions - these ubiquitious cameras can't tell the difference!
We, the citizens of the UK, have had enough of being milked non-stop, especially the motorists & Bikers, who have been practically demonised.
My good man, keep up the good work! Your name wouldn't happen to be "V" by any chance, would it?

The camera is clearly in a built-up area where speeeding's most dangerous.
And does anyone think that the Police will say "Ooh, we didn't realise cameras were unpopular. We won't replace it."? Or will the taxpayer will have to buy a new camera and pay for the police to try to catch whoever blew this one up.

Do you want free air fare to Australia ? We got a million of them over here you can blow up if you like...Revenue raising low life governments...Our red light cameras,speed cameras,laser guns,aeroplanes and helicopter assholes haven't done a thing to save lives..Our road toll is up mega higher than last year and the year before...Have they ever thought that maybe there is alot more people on the roads these days and all the overseas imports that they have bought into our countries who have absolutely no idea how to drive..
I dont mind getting booked if i have done something wrong but it is just getting out of control now...Then i have to watch these bullshit commercials telling us how they are saving lives...Government wankers..It's ok for them they have drivers that pick them up and drive them wherever they want to go and dont have to worry about getting booked besides getting free rego,free petrol and every other perk that these tossers get...Good on ya whoever you are..Your a bloody legend...

How irresponsible? Passers by? In the early hours of the morning? Was there a crowd watching then?
He's got a point though, look how dangerously close that tree is, could have created havoc with the environmentalists.
Do think taking an angle grinder to the post would have been alot easier?

Fantastic Great New Years Present - just might be simpler for all Bikers and come to think of it all motor vehicle users just to remove their number plates.
Its time for anarchy

i do often think of shooting them with my rifle. dam - cant do that now, im a suspect.
theres one in particular, got me once! pieces of shit. they cost us £40000 to buy, and another x amount a year in fees? insurance premiums? cost of postage of tickets? cost of monitoring? cost of maintenance? stupid things. i say blow them all up! or cut em down with an angle grinder, might be easier than complex pyrotechnics.
