If they keep having to fork out 45K to replace them, they might get the message sooner or later (or, more likely, start fitting cameras to keep an eye on the cameras).

I do remember reading a few years back about a bloke who blew one up. Unfortunately, the images were still usable and they found that the explosion triggered had triggered the camera, and the bloke had parked his car in view of the camera with his reg number showing.

You betcha. They're fitted in each speed camera warning sign just in front of a speed camera. Take a look next time you pass and you'll see the sign is 2cm thick.

Bizarrely enough a couple of months back a photographer mate of mine found a speed camera being watched by a security camera, which was being watched by a third camera fitted a few yards away.

You could'nt make it up....

They kept replacing the one just up the road from me, until they finally gave up, Loads of free tyres available round back of local tyre depot.

They've done the one on the A10 just north of Littleport too - went past the other day and it looks quite burnt. :D
