In Danjoutin, France, vigilantes on Sunday spraypainted a mobile speed camera that had been set up on the highway between Montbeliard and Belfort, Est Republicain reported. Black paint was used to cover the camera lens and prevent ticketing, while slogans were added to the side, saying "Down with the racket. Thief." On Friday, blue spraypaint was used to take out the automated ticketing machine on the RD791 in Planguenoual, according to Le Telegramme. In Reims, vigilantes torched the speed camera near Taittinger last week L'Union reported.
