    Only a $50 fine for vandalism?? He should pay for the camera (since as it stands tax dollars will)

    If they use the ones like they have in the UK I think there built to withstand a .22, should of used a tire and some gas like they do over there.

    He won't need one now, thirty ought six out a car window should have left him near deaf for awhile.

    50 bucks is cheaper than a red light violation.
    Would a powerful laser pointer spoof the camera?
    Some of those green ones will light matches and pop balloons.

    They have a shitload more cameras over there then we do, red light cameras, speed cameras they get vandalized all the time over there so they build them pretty tough.

    :rofl: something like this happened here a couple years ago, but to the traffic light control box.

    A lot of people who live in Cobb County get off I-285 at a Fulton Co. exit, then hook a left over the river into Cobb. Fulton got smart and rigged the light to disfavor the Cobb residents, the road would back up for 3-5 miles because so few people could make the turn.

    Some good ol' boy went and took the control box out with a hi powered rifle :rofl: Fulton wised up and fixed the timing on the light after that :rofl:

    hell, it doesn't seem like it would be that hard to render the cameras inop. You don't even have to destroy them, just put a sub sonic .22 into the lens. Even if it doesn't penetrate, it'll still star and crack the glass, and that will basically ruin it.

    Spray paint. :o

    Not permanent and will take a while to diagnose.

    Not that I've considered this, or anything.

    you have to get close to the camera to do that though.

    Paintballs on .22 subsonics would be ftw though.

    I saw something where people were injecting that expanding foam into the camera housings to ruin them.
