Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant

keepnotesAlthough it’s impossible to truly disinfect a company that is based on technological quackery and bogus safety statistics, a good start is to shed light on some so-called “highly classified” audited financial statements.

American Traffic Solutions begrudgingly provided this information to city officials in Pembroke Pines, FL., but only after securing it in a “separate envelope.”

American Traffic Solutions, Inc. is a private company and does not publish its Confidential Financial Information. Nevertheless, we are willing to disclose our financial statements to the City of Pembroke Pines as requested. However, as a measure to ensure strict confidentiality, we have enclosed the requested Financial Statement in a separate envelope entitled: American Traffic Solutions Financial Statements – Confidential Information.

As a result of the request for proposal, the City of Pembroke Pines published the “highly confidential” statements online as a .pdf. The document, now deleted, can still be seen in its entirety via Google’s cache or for forever on

    Arizona, the state with the largest photo enforcement program can claim Phoenix as the safest big city in America to drive!
    My thanks to Redflex and Ats for their participation in enforcing traffic laws which help keep us law abiding people safe!

    • This story only proves that the scamera system is ridiculously flawed and only about making money for private companies and DP$.

      To attribute safety numbers to scameras is actually laughable. These figures make our public officials look like fools because they are pushing for “increased safety” when it is not even an issue for Phoenix as compared to other major cities. We have all been told how dangerous our roads are, which is why the scameras are needed. Well, it looks like they’re not so dangerous after all, so why are fixed cams dotting our freeways like locusts?

      Why are people shortening yellow lights? Why do public officials and scam cam company employees routinely ignore tickets? Why do van drivers repeatedly ignore signage laws? Why are fixed cams placed right after drops in the speed limit, not giving drivers enough time to safely slow down?

      Right…it must be the cameras. How about adjusting for population? NY City has about 5 times the population of Phoenix, 8.2M versus 1,5M. But yes, it must be the cameras. Any other apples and oranges you want to compare?

    It’s a well-known fact that these are: (a) private companies; and (b) work on a commission basis of what they collect for the cities.

    Hold on Geez you must be kidding trying to use that to say the cameras are a good thing. The study was over a 10 year period when the cameras have been up around two years. Also it’s only big cities, and All-State drivers, very gimmicky study to me.

    Before the mass camera attack Phoenix (2002-2003):

    “Recently, Allstate Insurance researchers analyzed internal data to determine the likelihood that drivers would be involved in a vehicle collision. They looked at those cities in the U.S. with at least 100,000 in population–the largest 196 cities. To create the report entitled, “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report,” they took property damage claims over a two-year period (from January, 2002 to December, 2003) and used a weighted average of the two-year numbers to determine the annual percentages. The report defines an auto crash as any collision resulting in property damage. ”

    “Here are the top 10 cities over 1 million in population:
    (the number represents the national ranking)

    64. Phoenix
    111. San Diego”

    Phoenix was the number 1 safest large city in the US. San Diego, #2 safest, wasn’t even close.

    After cameras: Same thing. Who would have guessed! The key thing to get out of this story is that there was NO justification for the cameras except to make money. That’s it, that’s all folks!

    Oh and BTW, anyone driving I17 N notice the accident right at the fixed cameras at loop 101?! They basically split the 2 camera posts like a field goal into the wall there. Nasty accident and there was an ambulance taking them to the hospital. That camera is a death trap since the speed drops at least 10MPH right after and no one seems to be know whether the limit is 55 or 65 (or even 45). So with the mix of speeds there and the inevitable braking, an accident was inevitable.
