Allen Funt Would Be Proud, Eh? Canada Secrets Away Speed Cams

Authorities in Edmonton, AB have obviously been hitting the back issues of ReadyMade and Surveillance Weekly pretty hard lately, as they've begun disguising speed cameras as ubiquitous power transformers and roadside utility boxes. (Side note, when entering the 10 off of Fairfax in LA last week, we saw a metering-light control box with a giant illustration of what looked like Aaron Cometbus wheat-pasted to the side of it, Shepard Fairey-style.) Apparently, they've lifted the idea from the canny Australians, who've taken to setting up the cameras in the guise of lowly garbage cans. Sneaky, sneaky, you zany fellow former British colonies!
