In Ghent, Belgium, on Thursday a man began carefully painting over the lenses of the speed camera on Sleepstraat in broad daylight. A passerby used a cellphone to record the man as he walked around the automated ticketing machine holding a bucket of white paint and a paint roller. The video was posted on YouTube.

In Louisfert, France, vigilantes on Thursday destroyed the speed camera on the RD771 by burning it to the ground, Ouest France reported. The same device had previously been burned in May 2016.
