Tomtom, makers of GPS systems that warn motorists of road conditions including hazards like speed and red light cameras recently inquired with CameraFRAUD about the status of the freeway scameras. Their systems still warn of the presence of the (now dismantled) Redflex spy camera ring. The reason? DPS is still in denial that their cash cow is now kaput and haven’t eliminated the page from their website with the locations.
We set Tomtom straight and they will happily remove the warnings in the coming days.
In the city of Las Cruces, NM, they have received so many angry phone calls about their photo ticketing program that they had to set up an automated scamera apology line to deflect some of the inquiries. Missing from their “FAQ’s” is why the city still insists on running the program even though it is making their intersections more dangerous and accident numbers are increasing. Maybe they’re hoping that nasty little truth will be swept under the rug.
