Not all heroes wear capes: Tamworth man lauded – for covering up speed camera wearing VB carton


The man, dubbed ‘Demerit Man’, has gained instant Internet notoriety after footage was posted to social media showing him running up to a mobile speed camera unit in the country NSW town and covering it with a tea towel.

“Protected by his photo-proof beer box hat, he swoops in to foil the plans of his arch-nemesis,” it reads.

The clip’s since been viewed over 68,000 times – and attracted a fair few admirers.

“I think an Order of Australia medal should be awarded to this fine fellow!” one Facebook user wrote.

Not everyone is impressed by the stunt however – NSW Roads and Maritime Services has launched an investigation into the incident.

But most people seem happy to label him as our unsung hero.

“This is why Australia is the greatest country in the world,” another comment reads.

Give the man a beer?
