There was an extra benefit to France having more police on the streets on high terror alert for New Years: less automotive arson occurred. “Only” 804 vehicles were burned

In recent years, young Muslim immigrants have celebrated New Years by burning the cars of their neighbors in an automotive jihad. See my 2013 report: New Year’s in Diverse France: 1193 Autos Torched in Annual Car-B-Que.
