This item appears on page 4 of the January 2019 issue.

The town of Acquentico, in Imperia province, northwestern Italy, put temporary speed cameras up near a pedestrian crossing on the SS28 Nord highway in late October. Within two weeks, 58,568 speeding infractions were recorded. (The town has a population of 120.) The success of the cameras has caused the town council to install permanent cameras. The speed limit within the town is 50 kilometers (31 miles) per hour.
