Two speed cameras on the Al Dhaid-Sharjah Road were damaged by gunshots early on Wednesday morning.

The radars were placed between flyovers on the busy road. CID officers were dispatched to the scene to investigate, a security source told The National's Arabic-language sister newspaper, Al Ittihad.

Earlier this year 11 speed cameras were shot out in Sharjah.

Maj Gen Humaid Al Hudeidi, the Sharjah Police chief, had stated that all 11 speed cameras previously damaged had been fixed and were operational, noting that the culprit was yet to be identified but will be punished to the full extent of the law.
