Bare 372 biler ble satt fyr på under årets nyttårsfeiring i Frankrike, det er en nedgang på 7 biler fra i fjor. Skal si det går fremover der nede!

Politiet betegner nyttårsnatten som "relativt rolig". :P

'Only' 1,067 vehicles set ablaze on New Year’s Eve in France

The much lamented tradition of torching cars to mark the arrival of the new year claimed more than 10 per cent fewer vehicles this year

By French standards, it was a peaceful New Year’s Eve.

Only 1,067 cars and vans were destroyed by arson, a “significant” reduction of more than 10 per cent compared to the number of vehicles set ablaze last year, according to Manuel Valls, the Interior Minister.

All things considered, it was a “positive result”, Mr Valls told a press conference on Wednesday. He said he regretted the deaths of three people in knife attacks in Paris and in eastern and southern France.

Car-torching has been adopted as a modern New Year tradition by some young revellers in France. The practice reportedly began in earnest amongst youths - often in poor neighbourhoods - in the 1990s in the region around Strasbourg in the east of the coutnry.

Last year 1,193 vehicles were burned, according to official figures.
