Holiday Speed-Cam Coverup: Thanks Santa!

December 23, 2008
What's the best Christmas present ever, other than a new sportscar in the driveway under a big bow? How about a rogue crew of Santas covering up speed cameras, letting scofflaws have a holiday break?

That's what happened in Tempe, Arizona, according to the AP. A quartet of Santas took over three speeding and red-light cameras in the Tempe area, covering them and blocking their signals--giving drivers a break from the area's notorious traffic devices.

The video's even cropped up on YouTube--with the tagline,  "Ho Ho Ho! Death to the surveillance state! Free movement for all people!'' For those of you that like a little liberty with your eggnog, the Santas add in "lumps of coal to all of those who make it their business to watch and control.''
