He plays it off pretty well, but we talked to Peter Cottontail and he’s hopping mad about photo radar too.

Love this video! That rabbit sure can cut a rug!
Someone should dress up like Uncle Sam on July 4, making sure to bring along some real big hats painted in USA colors and place them over the scamera heads — thereby converting them into huge hat racks! 😉
For our favoritest freedom fighter:
I LOVE THIS RABBIT ! MORE EGGS !!
Civil Disobedience at it’s finest! This guy is my kind of American!
Made it on Channel 5.
“Tempe police, however, aren’t laughing, calling such behavior criminal damage”
What was damaged? Wow they like to exaggerate.
It was probably damaging to Redflex’s profits. ABC15.com had this story as well.
I am still left scratching my head, after review of the “Criminal Damage” law, as to how placing an egg over a scamera (which is a fraud in and of itself) constitutes criminal damage. Maybe the Tempe cop shop can concentrate on catching all the graffiti bandits in the city, instead of attempting to blow things out of proportion.
My thought exactly… What damage? To their bottom line?
I wonder how many accidents occurred at that intersection while the egg was rendering the camera inoperable…
I was wondering the same thing. There was no damage whatsoever. Sorry Fraudsters, you’ll have to find another way to claim that this was illegal, but we all know it wasn’t.
I think the real answer is that they can’t come out and say that there’s nothing illegal about it because it would encourage people.
How about a national “bag a camera” day?
Too bad we can’t get a hold of a bunch of those blue bags that Truvelo (a scamera company across the pond) places onto their inoperative cameras….
WED at 10 in the house HB2338 will be heard. http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/legtext/49leg/2r/summary/s.2338pshs.doc.htm
The Leg session is coming to an end.
Wow, the easter bunny at my favorite $camera intersection. The hucksters at Tempe Police is so silly to call it ‘criminal damage’. Nothing was damaged except their reputation for sticking up for the citizens they serve versus the greedy scamera companies..
I’d love to see an honest sales pitch for these cameras… we have a grea law enforcement tool! But it can be disabled with a simple box or bag, and when this happens you will look silly when you try to scare people into not doing it.
Looks like Tempe PD has egg on their face.
I think ABC 15 must have gotten the last part of that report wrong about the “Criminal Damage.” The Tempe PD is smart enough to know that wouldn’t hold any water.
Channel 15 probably just got this mixed up with another story. 😉
Now I’m a believer in the Easter bunny and Santa Clause. Now where’s the tooth fairy….
Awesome vids, 4409

Maybe budgets cuts to the police force wont be such a bad idea since they have nothing better to do with their time anyway
The “Your Speed Is” signs are notoriously off — I’ve seen the ones close to Rural and University register 30+ mph with no traffic around! Its fun to speed up until the display shuts off, and then (safely) slow down so as to be @ or below the speed limit where the induction loops for the scameras are buried.
Jobs & Families — now that’s an interesting one. My hats off to the many people I know in the group who have jobs and families, yet still make the time to fight for a just cause — namely, ridding the Copper State and the US of scameras!
THE SCAMERAS ARE COMING DOWN!
I happen to know that most all of the CF protesters work for a living. What do you call what Redflex and ATS do though? I guess if you can call what a mugger or a thief does for a living a “job” then I guess they work too.
Jobs! We don’t need no stinkin jobs!
I hope that the Easter Bunny got paid overtime.
I heard all of the jobs were shipped overseas. That would be a good idea for DES since they don’t serve any purpose here.
hUh If we ignore you, will you go away? You are not wanted here as you never have anything factual or meaningful to say. We, however, are “ON A MISSION” and don’t have time for your nonsense.
So if you block the scamera with a bag or sticky notes and they lose a day’s revenue but no damage is done to the equipment, here’s the question. Let’s say that a freeway camera has been averaging 500 citations per day. Of that, one quarter of the people typically end up paying their fraud tickets. That’s $181.50 x 125 (tickets) = $22,687.50 that you cost them for one day’s losses before they discovered and fixed the blocked view. Can they sue you for that much money (make an example of you)? Could there be criminal charges?
If not, maybe we should all buy a box of sticky notes and go to work. Some how though, I’m sure there are penalties if you get caught, and hidden cameras watching the cameras. Has anyone been caught doing this yet?
Its hard to identify someone wearing a mask…
Still we don’t advocate breaking the law.
The scamera companies should consider themselves fortunate that the following hasn’t happened to the scameras in the valley area….at least not yet….
I think the Easter Bunny Video deserves a CLEO award or something like that. It was a masterpiece!
