European vigilantes disable speed cameras with fire and spraypaint.

Last weekend, a speed camera in Clecy-sur-Orne, France was spraypainted black, according to Lorne Combattante. Vigilantes used a broader selection of colors in the Yonne region, L'Yonne reported. Over the past several weeks, they used white paint in Merry-Sec on the RN151; blue paint in Saint-Bris-le-Vineux on the D606; black paint in Villeneuve-sur-Yonne on the D606; and pink in Pontigny on the RN77.
