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.

They even let you smoke in the handicapped parking spaces!
Ah, the good ole Phoenix Business Journal loves Redflex and Taser International. Wonder how much it costs to get awards like that?
Gee, imagine that… Redflex sends the police data that shows accidents dropping, but ODOT has data that says accidents have increased… Who would you believe?

Every ticket is reviewed… yeah right.

the new TSA
New TSA commercial
A Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives is now urging Congress to freeze funding for the controversial nude-image scanners being installed in airports around the nation by the Transportation Security Administration.
U.S. Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., a Ph.D. physicist and current chair of the House Select Oversight Panel, also has written to ask for a meeting with TSA Administrator John Pistole to discuss his concerns regarding TSA`s implementation of X-ray backscatter full-body scanning machines at airports throughout the nation.

not bad for an old dude, but I’m hoping more ladies run through these lines in bikinis.
Or they could just shut off the scanners and send them back to Michael Chertoff, but that would be too easy.
