It has been reported that half of France's speed cameras are out of action.

The nation's current unrest has led to many acts of vandalism targeted towards the devices - the bill is thought to now run into millions of euros.

I'm not sure those who are looking for more money from a beleaguered government have thought their actions through. Also, if caught, they can face up to seven years in prison or up to a 100,000 fine.

Apparently 250 cameras have been damaged beyond repair and 1,500 have been made temporarily inoperable - they have been covered in rubbish bags, clingfilm and have had their lenses painted over.

Yep, lots covered in pink paint, which seems the most popular colour, although I've seen yellow also used, or black bags taped over them

Where there's a will ... there's a way.

There is a concerted effort by the authorities to repair/re-instate the cameras.

In addition efforts are being made. where possible. to identify the people concerned and bring them to justice - with some success. You wouldn't believe how naive people can be when committing criminal acts.
