Vigilantes in Novara, Italy grabbed a speed camera out of a regional police warehouse around August 16, OK Novara reported. The phrase "No Velox" was scrawled on the wall, referring to autovelox, the Italian term for photo radar.

In Chemnitz, Germany, vigilantes used gasoline to set the red light camera at the intersection of Augustusburger Street and Clausstrasse on fire, according to Chemnitzer Morgenpost.
