Sticking It To The Man

November 18, 2008

postitAn unknown group of people have been quietly expressing disapproval with Arizona’s new freeway photo scheme by taking a unique approach, potentially putting Redflex in a “sticky” situation.

The end result of the mystery activists’ efforts is the placement of Post-It notes on photo scam equipment throughout the valley. Reports have surfaced that numerous cameras have been involved over the past two weeks. At least two local Phoenix television stations are known to be researching the incidents.

In a photo obtained by CameraFRAUD.com, activists left the words “honest mistake,” possibly a reference to an incident earlier this year when Redflex CEO Karen Finley claimed that their usage of unapproved and non-FCC certified equipment was an “honest oversight.”

Redflex is no stranger to the convenience of Post It notes as detailed in the article “Arizona Official Confirms Redflex Falsified Speed Camera Documents:”

Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer last week confirmed that documents used to convict motorists… contained elements that had been falsified. Brewer revoked the license of Cheryl Krough, notary public for photo enforcement vendor Redflex after concluding that she violated four Arizona laws while purporting to certify a speed camera deployment form for use in official hearings.

The secretary of state’s office expressed a certain amount of indignation that in response to an investigation of the matter by the Arizona Attorney General’s office, Krough, “wrote a short response to the complaint on a post it note.”
