In a modern twist on the old 'motorcycle cop silhouette behind billboard/tree/bush' gag, residents of Haughton, Staffordshire, U.K., have put up fake signs indicating speed cameras. 20 such signs have been placed on the A518, which runs through the center of Haugton.
The Staffordshire County Council has declared the signs illegal. Supporters believe the signs are working and are refusing to take them down, which could lead to a legal showdown.

      This is like those "Speed monitored by Radar" signs you see in this country, on the edges of towns too small to even have a zip code.
      I really dread the day lawmakers in this country decide to start installing speed cameras behind every bush and on top of every telephone pole.

      I bet the county is pissed because the signs slow people down and reduce their revenue from speeding tickets.
