Arizona’s state legislature is back in session starting next week and we are all waiting with bated breath. 2009 brought us the birth and death of many bills intended to ban photo radar in some form or another.
Make no mistake, photo radar will be done in Arizona on November 2nd, after our initiative goes on the ballot and is voted on. But it will be amusing to watch the wonks at the state capital line up on each side of the debate.
Courtesy of KTAR.com, there’s an article giving us our first target for the new year, House Speaker Kirk Adams. Apparently Kirk thinks photo radar is a good idea because “people speed.” How profound Speaker Adams. They also slam on their brakes to avoid tickets from freeway scameras and red light cameras. If Kirk followed that statement up with, “and we need to make money,” it would make a lot more sense. I think it’s time to make a few phone calls, no?
