Italian town catches 58,000 speeding cars in two weeks – BBC News

When the tiny Italian town of Acquetico set up a trial speed camera, it did not expect to see a probable record: 58,568 speeding offences in just two weeks.

Local mayor Alessandro Alessandri set up the pilot after dozens of the 120 residents complained about speeding.

But even he could hardly believe the results that arrived on his desk.

The data showed, on average, a speeding car passed every few minutes in the 50km/h (31mph) zone – with the worst offender reaching 135km/h (84mph).

“It’s really madness, considering that we have inhabitants who regularly move within the village and cross the road,” Mayor Alessandri told Italy’s Ansa news agency.

WAREHAM, Mass. — Two people were hit and killed by a Christmas-themed train Saturday night in Wareham, CBS Boston reports. The train is similar to a Polar Express ride that regularly travels through Wareham during the holiday season.

A South Coastal Scenic train hit a man and a woman who investigators believe were on the tracks at the time.

“The train was a scenic train carrying numerous passengers at the time of impact, and originated in Buzzards Bay. No passengers riding on the train were injured,” the Plymouth District Attorney’s office said.

California wildfires: Trump visits state’s deadliest blaze – BBC News

US President Donald Trump has visited California to survey the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history.

The Camp Fire, in northern California, has killed at least 76 people.

More than 1,200 people have been reported missing, although officials say that figure could fluctuate.

In the destroyed town of Paradise, Mr Trump described the scene as “sad” and reiterated his disputed claim that poor forest management was to blame.

“We do have to do management maintenance and we’ll be working also with environmental groups. I think everyone’s seen the light,” he said.

California wildfires: Why are so many listed as missing? – BBC News

Over the last few days the number of people unaccounted for in the deadly Camp Fire in northern California has skyrocketed to more than 1,200.

The sudden jump has led to some confusion among locals and officials alike.

The confirmed death toll of 76 is already a state record, so could this huge number of missing people really still be added to that?

The answer is not so simple, as authorities in the worst-hit area, Butte County, have openly admitted.

On Friday, when the list first soared to over 1,000, Sheriff Kory Honea described the database as “dynamic”.
