Lib Dems Condemn ULEZ Camera Vandalism

Traffic Lights Vandalised

More traffic light poles with ULEZ cameras have been cut down overnight on 17 Jan in the Bromley Borough - this time in Orpington at the busy A222 junction of Court Road and Cray Avenue. The Lib Dems have condemned the vandalism, the serious risk it causes to all road users and the cost to the tax payers.

The spate of vandalism began at the weekend when the traffic lights with ULEZ cameras at the Royal Parade, Chislehurst were cut down. Since then traffic lights on Chislehurst High Street and Southborough Lane Bickley have been attacked and last night (17/18 January) traffic lights along the Orpington by-pass have been cut down.

“I absolutely condemn this criminal damage - the vandals are endangering the lives of pedestrians and motorists,” said Bromley Councillor Graeme Casey who is the party's prospective parliamentary candidate for Orpington. “This is needless unthinking vandalism with the potential for serious consequences. Some of the junctions they’ve chosen are on busy routes to school endangering children crossing already dangerous junctions. This reckless behaviour takes up the valuable time of our police who would be better spent dealing with the other problems we're facing in Orpington.“ 

Rob Blackie, the Lib Dem Candidate for the London Mayoral election on 2nd May, has also been appalled by the careless disregard for public safety demonstrated by the vandals. “The risk to all road users caused by this mindless vandalism is shocking; I hope TfL will be able  to replace the traffic lights quickly, but it also highlights the waste of public money that could be used providing better bus services and filling in potholes:”
