"Just a couple of weeks after a traffic-counting device was stolen from a Huntsville intersection, two more of the items were stolen from the Elkins Lake neighborhood.

And despite the rash of thefts of the traffic-counting devices, police are uncertain why anyone would want to take them in the first place.

The small piece of equipment, less than an inch thick and only 5 inches wide by 6 inches long, is found at street intersections attached to the pavement and covered with a mat."

Link for entire article. Not sure how long the local paper keeps the link up.[/url]

Just a little strange.

1 - Small black flant object the people will drive over with little thought.
2 - Just enough room for flat putty like substance
3 - It come with it's own sensing device

Smallish town?

What do you think

Someone could place explosives in there, and replace them with others, I guess.
Even though there are terrorists who want to harm us, we still have our own homegrown nutjobs, the D.C. sniper, for example.
