After a New Miami, OH judge ruled portable city traffic cameras to be unconstitutional, one Ohio prankster thought he'd have a little fun at his city's expense.

A For Sale sign was taped onto the front of the camera with a listing price of $1 million - that's the amount New Miami has collected in fines since the cameras were rolled out 15 months ago.

The sign remained in tact for less than half a day before authorities took it down, the News Journal reports.

In Cleveland, courts have also ruled that similar traffic cameras violate citizens' rights, yet ours have remained operational while the city reviews various court orders.

Clevelanders, too, have found ways to retaliate against these godforsaken roadside boxes of evil: In December, one Hough Avenue unit was apparently set ablaze by an angry driver.
