7/2/2018France, Italy: Several Speed Cameras Spraypainted, Burned, Kicked
Vigilantes last week used spraypaint and fire to trash a number of speed cameras in France and Italy.
Vigilantes torched the speed camera on the D33 in Mereville, France, last week Sunday. According to L'Est Republicain, officials believe some of the internal mechanism survived the attack. In Saint-Andre-de-Messei, pink spraypaint was used to cover the speed camera for a second time in the past month, L'Orne Combattante reported. White spraypaint was used on the speed camera on the RD1075 in Ayn last week Sunday. The speed camera on the RN7 in Saint-Romain-de-Popey on Thursday was spraypainted for the second time this month, according to Le Progres. Red spraypaint took out the camera on the D936 in Jasseron on Saturday, the same publication noted. Around the same time, the speed camera on the D817 in Castetis was painted red, according to Sud Ouest.
Vigilantes in Buttigliera d'Asti, Italy uprooted and knocked over a pair of "Velo OK" speed cameras, according to La Stampa.
