ATM armed with Pepper Spray...!?

I would have to admit this is pretty clever. Makes you think twice about entering your PIN number wrong on accident. I question the following user when they touch the pepper spray coated keys...
"For most of us, the biggest ATM frustration is either the machine being out of cash or deciding to eat your card.  In South Africa, you could end up with a face full of pepper-spray.  Driven to extreme measures by the rising attacks on cash machines by South African armed robbers, some banks are fitting pepper sprays that are triggered if a camera spots you tampering with the card slots.  Unfortunately for one ATM technician last week, that trigger isn’t foolproof."
