Napolitano has wasted no time in getting her photo radar plan operational. She ordered the first 42 mobile ticketing units stationed every twenty miles on Interstates 10 and 40 over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Gobble, gobble! Is turkey-neck Janet showing her lame duck colors? But wait, there’s more:
This means that an out-of-state family, unaware of the new program, could be hit with a total of twenty tickets while traveling with the flow of traffic between California and New Mexico. With court fees, the total cost of the citations would $3700.
These numbers don’t take into account the stationary (“flashing money tree”) units already littering the shoulders of our right-of-way.
NOTE: As far as we can tell, DP$ hasn’t figured out a way to serve out-of-state drivers, leaving the burden on in-state residents.
Numerous people have contacted CameraFRAUD.com to report a photo scam cam malfunctioning in Tempe:
Graham emails in:
I was sitting at the Starbucks on the SE corner of this intersection today (Wed, Nov 19, 6:15 pm). The camera monitoring E-W Guadalupe traffic is having an epileptic fit, flashing every couple of seconds on legitimate traffic (only when E-W travel is moving). I’m just waiting for the inevitable crash that this is going to cause, although it’s kind of funny to watch the light show. Love your site, keep up the good work.
Many people have also noted the incident on the AZCentral.com forum:
I drove by McClintock and Guadalupe the other night and the camera was malfunctioning. It flashed on every (no joke) car that went through the intersection on the GREEN light. The light had just turned green so no one was speeding. Bottom line, I don’t trust those things.
i think i was there when that happened!! i think it was wednesday or monday night around 9:20pm. That camera flashed me when i went on a green light, and all the other cars behind me as well, there better not be any ticket in the mail!!
I live near that intersection. It does that all the time!! I swear at least once a week it will flash for every car during a certain cycle right after the light turns green.
I was there when that was happening! It really was taking everyone’s picture. I live near there, but that was the first time I’ve ever seen that happen. If I get a ticket in the mail, it’ll be going right in the trash. What a joke.
