France Blue Saint-Etienne-Loire / Monday, January 8, 2018
The 22 ticket machines of Crêt-de-Roc were vandalized in Saint-Étienne. The slots for the introduction of coins or blue cards were filled with expansive polyurethane foam. This product swells and hardens and is used to plug holes. The ticket machines are unusable. The City of Saint-Etienne complained and hopes the parking meters will be working again as soon as possible.
In this district of Crêt-de-Roc the contestation against the new parking plan is lively: here many free places have become paying since January 1st. A petition has been launched by residents of the neighbourhood to denounce this new organization.
