Vigilantes in Lower Silesia, Poland used a rock to smash the lens of a recently installed speed camera, Sfora.pl reported. The automated ticketing machine located on the DK.8 in Mleczna was unable to issue citations, despite the relatively low cost of repair.

In Essarts le Roi, France, vigilantes cut down a speed camera on January 10 at around 11:30am. According to Le Parisien, one of the camera poles on the D202 Rue de Dampierre was removed with a saw.
