Campaign signs for Pinal County Sheriff Candidate Paul Babeu appear to have been updated with a simple, clear message: “End Photo Radar.”
The signs are readily visible along Hunt Hwy from Queen Creek to the Johnson Ranch area.
Pinal County contracts with beleaguered Australian firm Redflex Group to operate an undisclosed number of photo scam vans. Earlier this year, Redflex Group was found to have violated Arizona State Law on numerous occasions regarding traffic ticket integrity. Redflex is also facing a potential class-action lawsuit for alledgedly using electronic devices not approved for use in the United States.
More recently, a process server in Pinal County was found to have used a racial slur while attempting to serve a Redflex-generated citation. The event was caught on tape, and subsequently released to the media by CameraFRAUD.com.
Babeu is the second candidate this election to make photo enforcement a major part of his campaign, joining Mesa state rep candidate Joe Brown (I).
How Babeu intends to end photo radar remains unclear, although it is assumed that the Sheriff has the discretion to create or end certain projects.
