A Gatso camera on Wessex Way in Bournemouth, was recently sprayed grey - making it 'almost invisible' according to one motorist - any prosecution could still take place, according to Dorset Police.
The police said that they were 'aware of the vandalism'. Adding that repairs were carried out within 24 hours of enquiring about the damage.
However, drivers who believe they could escape any speeding prosecution because the camera is not its more prominent yellow colour are wrong.
