It only takes one or two visits to this website to realize that we have an initiative to ban Photo Radar, statewide, in Arizona. We do not consider ourselves pioneers in this endeavor, because fourteen states already have bans in place.
In an article published earlier this year, by The Newspaper, details of the bans on Photo Radar in those fourteen states can be found. Arizonans are proud of the freedoms we are afforded by living in this great state. However, we are definitely behind the curve when it comes to this hidden tax and covert surveillance under the guise of “public safety.”
Arizona voters can go to the ballot box in November of 2010 and put that statewide ban on any type of Photo Traffic Enforcement. There’s one catch. We still need your help. What’s needed is 153,000+ signatures by registered voters. We are not there yet, but the goal is within reach. The great news is that we have time on our side. But with that time comes more propaganda and advertising by Redflex, in particular, in the Arizona Republic and on local radio stations. ATS will probably come out with more cherry picked and misleading statistics about accidents and push-polls that don’t represent the true feelings of voters. Undoubtedly, the information war will only heat up to a boiling point from now until next November.
Please consider at least donating some of your time or just telling your friends about this site. It will be much appreciated by all the hard working volunteers and you will be able to hold your head up high when Arizona adds its name to the growing list of states that wised up and banned Photo Enforcement.
