France, Italy: Speed Cameras Burned, Painted, Toppled
Vigilantes burn a pair of Italian speed cameras and spraypaint four more in France.

Burnt Italian speed camera
In Dolo, Italy, vigilantes took out a pair of speed cameras last week. La Nuova di Venezia e Mestre reported that the "Velo OK" automated ticketing machines that photographed each side of the road on the regional 15 were knocked over, thrown in a ditch and set on fire.

In Marmagne, France, vigilantes used red spraypaint to disable the speed camera on the D23. Le Berry reported that the same device had previously been burned in June 2011 and then a few months later was smashed with an axe. In Cambrai on August 9, vigilantes spraypainted a trio of speed cameras on the RD643. According to La Voix du Nord, the automated ticketing machines were located at d'Aubencheul-au-Bac, de Beauvois-en-Cambresis and Cateau-Cambresis. Police have no idea who might be responsible.
