Breaking News: Redflex Van Driver Arrested for DUI


SCOTTSDALE – Police arrested the driver of a Redflex photo radar van on suspicion of DUI.

Roderick M. Ruffin, 53, had a blood alcohol content over 0.15 on Saturday while he was driving to Tempe to set up the van, police and company officials said. The legal limit is 0.08, and Ruffin’s blood alcohol level is considered an extreme DUI.

The motorist, in a tape of a 911 call, described the van to a dispatcher.

“On the back of it, it says photo enforcement vehicle on the back and the guy is deuced,” the caller said.


ACTION ALERT: Call Redflex CEO Karen Finley at (623) 207-2000 (press “0” at auto-answer prompt) and tell her drunk driving on OUR streets is unacceptable!

    I wish I could say that this surprised me.


    Look at this guy, even sober, he’d still look drunk! No wonder Redflex won’t produce the van drivers at the hearings!

    I wonder how many tickets were issued on his watch, prior to the discovery that he was INTOXICATED to the tenth power.

    Will those tickets be voided? Probably not and I am sure that his intoxication was another HONEST MISTAKE. Wonder if this Dude has a rap sheet. That would definitely dispell the myth that they perform background check, yeah?

    “Rod, a great, upstanding citizen, retired police officer, community idol just happens to wake up one day and decide to get blitzed and drive in order to get paid for citing motorist who break the law!” NOT! Come on people…dig…do your due diligence.

    I could go on forever…You all get the point.
