What about the cameras?  Top two in Languedoc! 

One speed cam on the A9 near Montpellier flashed an incredible 411,352 times in 2016, achieving the top score in the country, partially because it was moved around the area five times in one year.

The fixed speed camera with the highest flash rate in the country was on the A9, in the Nîmes-Béziers direction, handing out a total of 159,520 speeding tickets.
