In Chomerac, France, vigilantes used blue spraypaint to disable a speed camera. According to Le Dauphine, the device had previously been spraypainted orange in July and black in August. In Pomoy, red was the color of choice to put the speed camera on the RN19 out of commission on Saturday, L'Est Republicain reported. The same automated ticketing machine has previously been attacked almost a dozen times since 2008. In Houtaud, tobacconists covered a speed camera with a black garbage bag in protest against government tobacco taxes. In Longeault, Bien Public reports that the automated ticketing machine on the RD905 was destroyed by burning tires on Tuesday.
