9/12/2016DC, France: Speed Cameras Attacked
Vigilantes take out a speed camera in the US capital while French motorists continue to use spraypaint to disable the devices.
Vigilantes took care of a controversial speed camera last week, according to WTOP radio. The automated ticketing machine on Interstate 295 had been positioned on the shoulder of the highway, creating a hazard. The device has been removed to repair the unspecified damage.
Vigilantes in Naives-Rosieres, France used white spraypaint to take out the speed camera on the Voie Sacree on Thursday, Est Republicain reported. So far this year, two dozen speed cameras have been disabled across Haute-Loire so far this year, according to Zoomdici. The department has 28 speed cameras, and nearly fifteen percent of them are currently offline.
