Redflex Traffic Solutions is embroiled in a bribery scandal in Chicago that has prompted termination of the firm’s executive vice president and resignations of three other top executives.

Redflex Holdings, the Australian parent company of the Phoenix-based photo-enforcement company, says an internal corruption investigation also has found “potential issues” involving contracts in two other U.S. cities, but it didn’t provide further details.

NICK Cave’s latest hit has made him a local hero in his British seaside home town. Cave recently took out a speed camera erected by the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership with his Jaguar.The unscathed Prince of Rock’n’Roll Darkness jokes the pole hit him.”Ahem, it was the fault of the speed camera; it ran into me,” he said.”I have now become a local hero in Brighton because that speed camera has been the bane of everyone’s existence.”But now it has been bent in half and people keep wanting to buy me a pint.”
