Two Dutch men who attempted to blow up a speed camera in Voorschoten, Holland in 2011 were given 45 months and three years respectively in prison.

They attached a firework bomb to the speed camera with the intention of returning later to detonate it. But in the meantime, the police had been notified by a passerby.

Two bomb disposal experts and a detective were seriously injured when the device was triggered whilst they were attempting to dismantle it. One of the bomb disposal team lost part of his arm and all three suffered damage to their sight and hearing.

The sentences were increased from 30 months and 24 months following an appeal. One of the defendants had already tried to destroy speed cameras twice before.
