Swiss driver attacks Gatso with pick-axe
Then throws it off cliff
We know this will find favour with a large number of Reg readers: an enraged Swiss driver has smashed a speed camera off its mountings with a pick-axe after the Gatso snapped him doing 50mph in a 30mph zone in the Swiss alpine village of La Punt Chamues-ch.
Not satified with that, he then ran the offending camera over with his car, drove it up a mountain and chucked it off a cliff, in the process successfully destroying both Gatso and film, Ananova reports.
Sadly, low-tech coppers at the scene - using the good old Mark 1 eyeball - clocked the high-altitude vigilante as he dispatched the camera into the void, and he now faces a fine of up to £13k for destruction of public property. ®
