France: Speed Cameras Shot, Spraypainted

A speed camera in Vosges, France was shot several times by a rifle last week Sunday. According to Loractu, only the housing of the automated ticketing machine on the RD424 was damaged. On the same day, fluorescent yellow spraypaint was used to take out the speed camera on the RD813 in Port-Sainte-Marie, Sud Ouest reported.

According to Le Progres, pink spraypaint took out the speed camera on the RD906 in Bellevue-la-Montagne.
