About that Burqa Law

So, wearing the burqa is now illegal in France. What about enforcement? This morning I googled "interpellation burqa" and "arrestation burqa" and came up with this, this, and this. But these are all arrests of people demonstrating against the law. Has anyone been arrested for, you know, actually wearing a burqa as part of daily life? Anybody know?

It starts to be a "problem" also in Australia, here after some troubles between a lady wearing the Burqa and some policemen trying to control her identity...

Hearing local radios, Australians are for the ban of the Burqa and apply the law! never end story like in France?

No free expression of religion in Australia?
No need for probable cause for police stopping someone for "identity control".
What kind of police state are these people striving for?
