French Yellow Vests disable 60% of France's ENTIRE speed camera network
Members of the "yellow vests" protest movement have vandalised almost 60% of France's entire speed camera network, the interior minister has said.

Some protesters feel speed cameras are solely a revenue-generating measure which takes money from the poor.

But the extent of the damage - now believed to affect more than half of all 3,200 speed cameras in the country's network - was unknown until the interior minister's statement on Thursday.

He said the devices had been "neutralised, attacked, or destroyed" by members of the protest movement.

Speed limits in France were already controversial after the government lowered the limit on many main roads from 90km/h to 80 mph (50mph) early last year.

Protesters angry about the increase in fuel taxes complained of the rising costs of a commute for those priced out of living in urban centres - and turned their ire on other costs such as toll roads and speed cameras.
