France, Germany, Spain Traffic Cameras Disabled
Flowers, garden hoses and fire take out speed cameras throughout Europe.

In Riogordillo, Spain, nature has disabled a speed camera. Bright yellow wild flowers blooming on the A316 at the 64 kilometer mark prevent the automated ticketing machine from photographing traffic, Diario Jaen reported. The private contractor that runs the camera for Spain's Direccion General de Trafico (DGT) has not trimmed the shrubbery since the camera was previously disabled with blue spraypaint.

In Osnabruck, Germany, vigilantes used seven stacks of large yellow industrial hoses to cover a red light camera on Furstenauer Weg. According to Osnabrucker Zeitung, police have no idea who might be responsible.

In Herouville-Saint-Clair, vigilantes last Saturday set fire to a speed camera. Tendance Ouest reports that the attack destroyed the device that had been issuing tickets on the road between Caen and Ouistreham.
