Suburbanites tackle motorists with hairdryers

Frustrated with CityLink toll evaders speeding through their residential streets every day, some Melbourne suburbanites are fighting back, by staking out the streets with hairdryers, pretending they're radar guns. Wonder how long until the two-wheels-good-four-wheels-bad crowd take this up as a form of direct action.

What would be interesting was after the drivers start ignoring the blowdryers, the police start dressing up in civvies pointing radar guns disguised as blowdryers.

And fines would promptly be overturned in court.
