Redflex Driver Crosses Gore, Runs Stop Sign


What, me signal?

What, me signal?

A driver for beleaguered Redflex Group found himself at the other end of the camera this past Thursday when a motorist videotaped him committing multiple moving violations on the Loop 101 westbound near 35th Avenue.

The video, uploaded to YouTube, clearly shows the employee dart across a gore area to avoid missing the 35th Avenue exit. Failure to signal is then the name of the game (twice), an unsafe lane change, followed by a fun little round of stop sign roulette.

For your viewing convenience, we have deep linked to each incident in this handy virtual “ticket” we’ve written for the driver:

9/10/2009 – 9:30 AM – Loop 101 near 35th Ave
VIOLATION A:
28-644 A2, Crossing of Gore Area (Video | Statute)
VIOLATION B: 28-755, Failure to Signal Lane Change (Video | Statute)
VIOLATION C: 28-755, Failure to Signal Lane Change (Video | Statute)
VIOLATION D: 28-644 A1, Unsafe Lane Change (Video | Statute)
VIOLATION E: 28-644 A1 , Failure to Obey Stop Sign (Video | Statute)

If cited for each offense, the employee could have racked up over 11 points against his license (Gore area: 3; failure to signal: 2; failure to signal: 2; unsafe lane change: 2;  ignore stop sign: 2.).

In Arizona, drivers can lose their license or be ordered to “traffic survival school”  if 8 or more points are accrued.

CameraFRAUD is requesting a formal investigation into the matter.

    All because they were in a hurry to get to Chick Fil Et!

    DPS issues multiple automated tickets to poor saps like us who go through their extortion zone, i dont see why this should be any different.

  2. Tom says:

    This is what we need to do to the politicians who want these devices. This would show how intrusive it really is.

  3. Brent says:

    Okay, Chick Fila is good- but not worth driving like that toward..

  4. Bill Conley says:

    Actually, with all the violation, he should be charged with aggressive driving…I would have cited, if not arrested, a driver I observed driving

    I call on DPS to cite this individual and REDFake to fire this driver.

    This driver drives like crap!

    I learned to start videotaping them every chance I get after I saw a scamvan do a U-turn through the median on a split portion of the 303 one day.

  6. Beau Jangles says:

    The driver that shot this video also crossed the gore area 28-644 A2. Also failed to use signal during gore crossing 28-755, You can clearly hear the signal in the other shots. Maybe you should just write your self a ticket. Nice job incriminating your self jack ass.

    • James S says:

      Are you trying to make a point that drivers tend to drive… badly? That’s not news. Go on the 101 for five minutes and that point can be made easily.

      I think the video deals with something a little more pressing: a police-marked vehicle is being driven poorly by non-police officers. What signal does that send to people?

      All in all, it sounds like you’re trying to excuse the Redflex driver based on something that a vehicle behind him “might” have done. That’s not logical.

      • Beau Jangles says:

        James its not a matter or logic its being a hypocrite. Not trying to excuse redflex for anything, they enforce good driving and this is clearly an example of bad driving, but if your going to accuse someone else of doing something then follow right in their tracks, I think that’s just someone being a douche. Also I cannot believe that this loser has nothing better to do then follow around a vehicle with a camera, You should keep both hands on the wheel if your going to film get a dash mount for your cam. DPS will pull you over if they see you holding a camera.

        • James S says:

          Dps will pull you over for holding a camera?

          I’d like to see the statutory backing for THAT one, or else they’re acting under the color of law and without authority.

    • metelhed says:

      Seeing as the camera van is tasked to issue notices of violation, and a regular citizen is not, how does your comment have anything to do with anything? Whoever taped this doesn’t stand to make money from the video, whereas issuing tickets and “enhancing safety” is the purported business of Redflex. Can you spot where the hypocrisy comes into play?

  7. Brent says:

    Blast from the past – watch this video and then get ready for the upcoming East vs. West event!

  8. Jokn says:

    This video was a great example what good for the goose is good for the gander, politcians and redflex should have video of them like police have dash cams to watch them all the time,since they think camera’s and video are such a good idea. Now why have the feds not asked for there share of money with camera’s on federally funded interstate.

    • Brent says:

      As much as I want to believe that this device is is good as 50% accurate, or even 100% on the fixed units- I still don’t see how the inventor got over that little pesky ‘speed of light’ problem..

      • The Keeper of the Seven Keys says:

        I guess it’s more curious how he got over that misery “it is NOT a still photo” problem, though…

      • Hah says:

        No real speed of light problem — you’re not beating light, you’re just saturating the camera’s CCD.

        Since it’s a video camera, and not a still camera with a shutter, you’re not even racing the shutter, you just need to blind it during that sample period.

      • who says:

        Roy was speeding past how many camera’s? 5-7? I’m gonna laugh when he gets those served to him, considering the device doesn’t actually work.

      • who says:

        I think you should send this video to DPS so he can be charged. Ya’ll like to do those things.

      • who says:

        oh btw. how’s the guy got unpaid tickets if the device is 100% effective?!

  9. photoradarscam says:

    Haha, the shareholders for Redflex have submitted a resolution to remove the Chairman Chris Cooper and Non Executive Directors Roger Sawley and Peter
    Lewinsky as Directors; and appoint Robin Debernardi, Max Findlay and Ian Davis as Directors.

    Tucson Daily Star rips DPS for wasting money on Monkey mask guy http://www.azstarnet.com/allheadlines/308888

    keep up the good work and pressure!

    There we go. Fire everyone that works in Photo Radar. Lets raise the unemployment rate a little more, so that we can pay higher taxes than we already are. Screw those guys cause we are all too irresponsible to drive in a safe manner. We would rather put people and their families at risk just to spite photo radar and the big corporations backing thenm. Lets leave a child parentless instead of being responsible drivers and slow down a little. At least for the 5 seconds it takes to slow for a camera.I say lets kill everyone that doesnt speed cause they are all photo enforcement supporters. Then the roads will be ours.

    • LoneWolf says:

      There’s lots of job openings throughout the valley. The scameras themselves are a tax to the people in more than one way. When a camera gets damaged or destroyed, who do you suppose reimburses the scam cam companies and who do you think pays the city such reimbursement costs? When you get a ticket from a scamera that malfunctioned and you pay $180, what else could you have done with that $180? Where does all the money go that is generated by these machines? I know for Redflex, a lot of that money gets generated back into the Australian economy. Phoenix scameras are now contracted by Redflex.

      It must make you feel good to know that some private company in Australia helps enforce American laws while making lots of money off of us.

      As for your ‘kill-all’ attitude, I have never been flashed by one of those machines. I am a law abiding citizen. Your impression that only the speeders are anti-camera are way off base. I am strongly opposed to them because they’re intrusive, they’re about money and not safety, they can’t pull anyone over or prevent a crime from happening, they’re unconstitutional, they tend to malfunction, they can be calibrated to make extra money, and the list goes on.

      What’s wrong with these things?: http://tinyurl.com/mbjtv7 They’re not about money and they’re nearly as effective as scameras. This comes to show that there are alternative solutions to slowing people down rather than sticking a money-making machine in their faces.

      The world survived before scameras and it will continue to survive long after they’re all taken down. All it would take is just some smart street engineering and reasonable speed limits.

  13. Bryan R says:

    Channel 12 news picked this up, and there’s an azcentral.com link that RPr posted in the “Join Camerafraud” comments section to the video.

    That’s some great work exposing these hypocrites… and it’s good to see the exposure in the mainstream news.

    BTW – DPS’s response, the whole, “he shouldn’t have been videotaping and driving at the same time,” was a weak attempt at a red herring, to put ANY possible negative spin on this detective work. They were caught with their pants down, and that’s all they had?

  14. Mike says:

    Nice!!! This video just got picked up on Fark.com – a very popular news site! It should get thousands of views from that!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hello to all, how is the whole thing, I think every one is getting more from this
    web site, and your views are pleasant in support
    of new users.

  27. Make sure you are very enthusiastic about writing their letter to Santa.
    Ticket printing and sales – one or more volunteers should be assigned to contact local
    business owners about selling tickets in their shops.
    Santa encourages children to be nice to one another, and to be good at home
    and in school.
