BREAKING: Arizona Governor’s Office Makes a Deal


In talks with legislators in the AZ House, the reality has set in that the red light and photo radar scameras are not going anywhere until at least 2012. Speaker Kirk Adams has been pounded with phone calls and emails, but won’t budge on this issue.

There is however, some really good news to report. Governor Jan Brewer’s office has offered an olive branch to CameraFRAUD supporters. They have agreed to create a “citizens exempt from photo tickets” list for the rest of 2011.

Governor Brewer has said in the past that she does not like the photo ticketing system and wants to see a citizens vote on the matter.

Currently, only politicians, judges and Redflex and ATS employees are exempt from photo tickets, so this will be a special Arizona residents list which will be filed with courts and the Motor Vehicles Department. Redflex and ATS would still issue tickets to alleged “violators,” but if they’re on the list, they may ignore the tickets, which will be dismissed automatically by the courts, without being assigned to process servers.

There is a deadline of 5 p.m. on Friday to get on this list and there is a short form that must be filled out, which can be obtained from the governor’s office.

Governor Brewer’s Chief of Staff, Eileen Klein has requested that those who wish to be put on the list fill out the contact form here.

Please put “CameraFRAUD.com” in the topic field and just include a brief request to be sent the form for the “exempt from photo tickets” list.

Requests received after 5 pm Arizona time tomorrow will not be honored.

If you have any questions about the program, the governor’s office can be reached by phone at (602) 542-4331.

    This is great news (and cringing in case it is an early April Fools joke)!

    What is suggested for the most efficiency in the “subject” field?

    • Sure says:

      I just got my confirmation e-mail from the governor’s office. You will get confirmation number.

    • Zeigh says:

      HA!, just as i thought! April Fools one day early! I just received this via e-mail:

      “We are aware of information circulating on Twitter and/or other
      electronic means of communications that indicates the Governor’s Office
      has established an exemption list for photo radar tickets. The
      information you have read or heard probably directed you to our Office
      to submit your request to be added to the list for the rest of this
      year.

      Please know that there is no truth to this information. It appears
      this may have been an elaborate ruse carried out through social media
      circles. The Governor’s Office has no part in this prank.

      I received the same reply as Zeigh.

  2. photoradarscam says:

    Unfortunately, most CF members oppose photo enforcement not because they have received tickets or might receive a ticket, but because they are inneffective, unconstitutional, and are being used as a substitute for proper traffic engineering and real law enforcement.

  3. hey idiots says:

    You can also exempt yourself from these tickets by not SPEEDING OR RUNNING RED LIGHTS!

    I don’t know what the governor is thinking here. This is very dangerous.

    There should not be anyone exempted from this system.

  4. Sure says:

    I called the governor’s office and got on the list.

  5. Corrie ten Boom says:

    You know who else liked lists of dissidents…

    April fools joke.

    But there is a list for politicians? For real??

  10. Mike Waters says:

    Even if it is a hoax, it costs nothing to send the comment and passes on a very strong massage that many people don’t like the scameras.

    People like the exemptions for politicians and their friends even less!

    I got TWO scamera tickets when I was blind and waiting for eye surgery. My first tickets in 50 years of driving.

  11. Kirk Wines says:

    While I fully support CameraFraud and the elimination of photo radar (and worked hard to gather signatures), I believe this is a serious issue and that this message board should disseminate factual information to promote the cause and keep the public informed. This really isn’t an appropriate forum on which to present an “April Fool’s” joke that leads to confusion. Just my two cents worth.

    • welcome, kirk... says:

      You’re obviously new here.

      CF often does things like this.

      Why?

      For the luls, and chicks mostly.

    • Pro-camera says:

      Kirk,

      I have written many times on this site because I oppose the view on the cameras and have to agree. Posting such a “Joke” on the website has the appearance of immature people being behind the cause. Personally, I don’t want people to allow the cameras because they think the people against the cameras are childish. But when items like this are on display on the website, it doesn’t help your cause. It makes you wonder, how much other stuff posted on the site was just a stretch of the truth to gain attention?

  12. Bozo says:

    Stop whining, Kirk.

  13. sean kelley says:

    Please email me the form to fill out for the camera exemption. I would also like to add that I truly am pleased with this action and attempt to allow the “little” people to have the same allowances as everyone else.

  14. @SCAMERAFRAUD says:

    I’m told you can call back in the AM if you really want to🙂 Just press 4!

  15. hey ya says:

    I’m on the list!

    Now, I can be on the photo ticket exemption list in ADDITION to the no-fly list!

    It’s like a cosmic balance-counterbalance in the upsidedown universe of government.

    Thanks, CORPJAN(tm) and DHS(R).

    Now, I can REALLY pretend to be free!

  16. Sure says:

    Protestors harassed by DHS – starts at 2:40

  17. B says:

    F**k you, Kirk Adams.

    How much is ATS and/or Redflex paying you? Any “junkets” they’re sending you on as a thank you card?

    How does it feel to be a king for a day and stand in the way of the will of hundreds of thousands of Arizonans, the state Senate, and the governor’s office?

  19. Get a life people! KTAR does this kind of joke every year.

    If you look at the top story on their website right now, it’s an April Fools joke.

    I truly pity anyone who can’t get a chuckle out of a little prank.

    Life’s a lot tougher without having a sense of humor.

    • Indeed. Anyone who thinks we’re somehow opposed to humor and pranks really hasn’t paid any attention to this website at all.

      Lighten up! And if not, you’ll be back anyway!😉
