Russia, France: Speed Cameras Swiped, Spraypainted
Vigilantes in Russia and France took several speed cameras out of service last week.

Vigilantes in St. Petersburg, Russia snatched a mobile speed camera from Sofia Street on September 28, Nation News reported.

In Aisne, France, vigilantes disabled a trio of speed cameras over the past ten days, Aisne Nouvelle reported. After the camera on the RN2 was painted black, officials quickly had the camera lenses cleaned so the automated ticketing machine could resume generating citations. Within hours, vigilantes applied a new coat of green spraypaint to ensure that did not happen. Then the speed camera on the RD967 in Crecy-sur-Serre was disabled with white paint. Last weekend, the camera on the RD1044 near Festieux was disabled.
