Break on the roadside: It's not just the little white clay boy who has his eyes closed.
The lens of the mobile lightning trailer is also blind, as the figure prevents the speed being measured.

Miesbach – The white boy made of clay doesn't look like a Spitzbua at all – and none of the drivers who were driving out of town on Bayerischzeller Straße in Miesbach on Tuesday evening are guaranteed to be angry with him.
After all, the figure on the corner of Miesingstraße made sure that the lightning trailer placed there was out of order, at least in the direction of Weyarn and Irschenberg.
Unknown persons had placed the boy, who is sitting dreamily and sleepily on a ball, in front of the measuring lens of the mobile speed camera.
So not only the Buberl had a break, but also the speed measurement.
Yesterday morning not only the boy was removed, but also the flash box.
Again and again forms of vandalism
At the municipal service center in Bad Tölz, which regularly hunts speed offenders in Miesbach with its mobile lightning trailer, there was no information about the incident yesterday.
"I'm not told anything like that anymore," explains Managing Director Michael Braun when asked by our newspaper.
The reason: The incidents in which the lens is smeared or blocked are increasing.
"It's happening more often.
That's why we always have spare discs and solvents with us.” Beer bottles have also been placed in front of them.
Braun does not want to comment on the increase in cases in numbers.
According to Braun, many drivers don't fall into the radar trap anyway: "There aren't that many.
However, it is important for us that the permissible speed is observed.
it's all about this."
Arson attacks in February
After all, the device was not set on fire like two trailers in February of this year in Lenggries and Greiling in the Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen district.
The damage in Greiling was 250,000 euros, in Lenggries 7500 euros.
The perpetrators have been caught and are facing charges of arson.
So it remains to be seen whether this shoot with the garden decoration figure will be repeated in Miesbach at the next opportunity.
