Making waves in Venice

Authorities in Venice continue to do what little they can to stave off the inevitability of the fabled city’s sinking into the Adriatic.

The latest is the introduction of speed traps to catch overly enthusiastic motor boat drivers from churning up the waters that are already dampening many a tourist’s visit.

The Telegraph reports:

For years, the waves caused by motor boats have battered the city’s foundations and eroded its channels.

Now the city wants to install speed cameras similar to those found on motorways and ski pistes in order to curb over-exuberant drivers.
