In Kerdual, France, vigilantes on Sunday disabled a speed camera by painting it bright blue. According to Ouest France, this was the second time since spring this camera has been taken out of service. In Henansal, fluorescent yellow spraypaint was used on the speed camera on the D768 last week Sunday, Le Telegramme reported. Such incidents are on the rise, according to Radars Auto, citing government figures compiled by the Delegation a la Securite Routiere that show the state budgeted 6.8 million euros (US $7.7 million) to cover anticipated damages.

A "Saher" freeway speed camera in Hail, Saudi Arabia was set on fire on Saturday, Akhbaar 24 reported. Officials have no idea who might be responsible.
