After five nights and as many days of guerrilla warfare in all the French departments, tow truck operators are on all fronts to remove burned cars, trucks and buses.

With the arrival of the GIGN and RAID as reinforcements, gendarmes and law enforcement officers, the rioters fled the places at risk.

The hundreds of testimonials from professionals collected by LDM, The Towing Magazine confirm that public roads are safe.

Cars by the hundreds and more impressive dozens of burnt buses and trucks are to be evacuated from the public roads.

At the time of writing, the Depann’2000 company is evacuating several dozen city transport buses and completely burnt-out heavy trucks. With exceptional human and material resources.

The still provisional assessment in France: (updated 07/04/2023)
6,000 vehicles burned.
1,000 private and public buildings burned and vandalized.
3,625 arrests (1124 minors).
269 attacks on police and gendarmerie stations.
