According to Le Progres, the artist signed his work with a stencil that read "Octo" and the image of an octopus. Black spraypaint blinded the speed camera on the RD165 near Dompaire on Thursday, Vosges Matin reported. On Tuesday, a pair of speed cameras on the RD988 in Les Mazures were painted black. According to L'Ardennais, the same devices had been blinded on July 8. On Wednesday, the speed camera on the RN13 in Isigny-sur-Mer was destroyed by burning tires, La Manche Libre reported.
