Robbed of good name

Townsville Bulletin - - Cars Guide -

AHEART­LESS thief has stolen a unique sign made for a tiny town’s road safety cam­paign. The town of Speed in Vic­to­ria changed it name to Speed­kills for a month as part of a sign changed to match. Lo­cals had planned to auc­tion the sign for char­ity af­ter the month-long cam­paign ended. The town — which has a pop­u­la­tion of about 45 — in Jan­uary an­nounced it would re­name it­self for a month if its cam­paign got 10,000 votes on Face­book. The tar­get was reached in less than 24 hours — and the cam­paign cur­rently has more than 35,000 Face­book votes.
