A picture of a blocked speed camera, apparently taken at a Witbank community in Mpumalanga, is causing much amusement on Twitter.

A parody account, @AdvBarryRoux, shared the photo on its profile on 6 November, Briefly.co.za gathered. It captioned it:

Fixing the country? The community of Witbank have sorted the issue of cameras.

A devious motorist must have felt that the camera was the cause of perhaps numerous traffic fines received in the mail.

Covering the speed camera with a dark plastic refuse bag apparently solved the problem by blocking its view.

Interestingly, some tweeps applauded this "remedy" and even noted that it's a "peaceful protest" compared to downright vandalism.

One tweep suggested that Gauteng residents should also resort to this unconventional measure.

Another commenter shared a photo of a vandalised speed camera, alleging that in Mbombela, residents go much further than simply blocking them.
