Thanks to Those at the Chandler Ostrich Festival


Just before the gates opened

The Chandler Ostrich Festival came at just the right time and couldn’t have gone better. Fresh off of the Chandler City Council members ignoring the will of the people in their own city, CameraFRAUD volunteers were able to capitalize on popular anti-photo radar sentiment. Thousands of signatures were gathered and the aisle by our booth was usually backed up with people waiting to sign.

Special thanks goes out to Chandler Police for their support of our cause and willingness to sign the Ban Photo Radar petition in uniform!

The Chandler Ostrich Festival typically has about 150k attendees over the weekend and is put on by Universal Fairs. Thanks to Brian from that organization for all the help. It’s just a shame we won’t be back next year because….

The Cameras Are Coming Down in November 2010!

signatures, signatures, signatures!

      Sounds like we’ll be hearing a LOT of procamera ads, brought to you by “APCO” this fall…

      It’s pretty lame that a company from the UK and Germany can meddle in domestic politics…
