The writing would appear to be on the wall, or so the saying goes. The time line is left to interpretation.
The court case, which Redflex actually won against American Traffic Solutions may have hurt the winner more than the loser. Karen Finley, CEO of Redflex was forced to admit under oath that her woefully incompetent multi-national corporation was operating in the United States for 11 years(’97 – ’08) with falsified FCC documents, which said the company’s radar equipment did not need to be certified. As you can guess, the equipment absolutely did need to be certified, which means Redflex was lying through their teeth for years in order to score contracts with cities.
Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar and CameraFRAUD had an observer in court who witnessed Finley saying that the offender who supplied the company’s false documents was hit with the steep penalty of a withheld bonus, once the infraction was discovered. That bonus better have been a lot of money, because the parade of class action lawsuits coming from this little admission might cost Redflex a few pennies to defend.
Could anyone say that tickets issued by Redflex from 1997 – 2008 are justified, knowing that the equipment they were using to measure speed was not even certified?
Eleven years of Redflex photo tickets from all across the country are now also in question, legally.
