A speed camera was set on fire on the highway between Narbonne and Toulouse, France on Wednesday at 3:30am, La Depeche reported. Police have no idea who might be responsible for destroying the automated ticketing machine, admitting the public has not been willing to rush forward and identify the vigilantes. The area has twenty-five speed cameras and sixteen red light cameras, which are regularly attacked.

Vigilantes set fire to a speed camera in Wiehl, Germany on Thursday at 1am, according to Oberberg Aktuell. A canister of gasoline was placed on top of the device and set on fire. Only the camera lens suffered significant damage.
