Speed radar felled by chainsaw

The attack came just days after the suicide of France's speed camera bomber

One of Lorraine's most effective cameras has had its career ended violently

ONE of the most effective speed cameras in Lorraine has had its career cut short by a chainsaw.

The radar, on the A31 near the French border with Luxembourg, caught on average 245 vehicles a day breaking the speed limit – notching up 89,351 flashes.

The €80,000 camera was found severed from its base on Monday, just days after the suicide of a man who admitted carrying out a bombing campaign on speed cameras two years ago.

Frédéric Rabiller was caught after accidentally setting off an explosion while mixing chemicals at his home, but his trial was delayed because of questions over his mental health.
