Arizona Voters Beat Back Legislature on Prop 112

December 15, 2010

Consider this post a victory speech for the people of Arizona. Their legislature was clearly trying to pull one over on the voters. In effect, they voted unanimously to put the clamps on citizens initiatives, like the current effort to ban photo ticketing in Paradise Valley, which will soon be joined by those in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, etc.

Prop 112 received little press outside of this site and was so close that it went to a recount, which will be validated this coming Monday. CameraFRAUD has been given the numbers and are happy to announce that it will fail by approximately 190 votes.

We’d like to thank everyone who read our original post, “Vote No on Prop 112.” With more than 1,000 views leading up to election day, it’s clear that you were able to swing this one the right way!

Zero thanks go out to AZ State legislature. You have been a poor representative of the people and were out to deceive them with this proposition. Just remember that we are going to be watching you very closely in 2011.

Tucson Saturday 4/17: CameraFRAUD and Campaign For Liberty

April 16, 2010

For all those lovers of freedom and liberty out there in The Old Pueblo, Campaign For Liberty of Arizona is going to school you! They are offering the renouned “Activist Boot Camp” tomorrow for $25 at HomeTown Buffet on Oracle Road tomorrow, Saturday April 17th, starting at 9 am.

Also, CameraFRAUD volunteers will be present to collect  filled out signature sheets for the Ban Photo Radar In Arizona Initiative. Even if you don’t plan on attending the Boot Camp, you are welcome to stop by, drop of your sheets and pick up new ones. Thanks a million! Or should we say, thanks 300K…. that’s the goal!

Special Message from AZ Campaign For Liberty:

Guess what: the politicians see you coming.  They know how to deal with people like you.  They don’t want to give in to people like us.  They know how to confuse you, discourage you, make you waste your time, make you go away, and if all else fails, buy you off.

Effective political mobilization is not taught at major universities.  It is not taught at think tanks, it is not taught at mass demonstrations, and it is rarely even taught by grassroots organizations, who for the most part only expect their members to send letters to legislators and send them money.

It is not taught because the political class doesn’t want you to know about it.


New Website Takes Aim at Redflex Traffic Systems

April 14, 2010

It used to be so much easier to sweep these things under the rug, eh mates? Australia’s Redflex Traffic Systems (ASX:RDF) has had enough trouble brushing off all the bad press and embarrassments, but now the highlights have been chronicled for all to see on FireRedflex.com.

This website could easily serve as a guide for ordinary citizens or even elected officials to object to lobbying efforts by this foreign, for profit organization. With Redflex’s days in AZ coming to a close soon, they are undoubtedly scrambling to find more municipalities that don’t mind having the wool pulled over their eyes about this dangerous system of “enforcement.” People of California, are you paying attention?

If your city is currently under surveillance by Redflex, mentioning this website at the next City Council meeting is a great way to educate those who still believe the “It’s All About Safety” rhetoric.


Frequent “Fliers”

BIG BRO'S WORST NIGHTMARE: Effective, low-cost handouts. (Click for .pdf)

Received via email:

Hi, I am just looking for the file of those little yellow paper (business card sized) handouts… I really need them… They are the MOST effective form of advertisement in my opinion and they only cost the cost of the paper you print them on (plus some toner/ink). …please locate that file for me!  It would be very much appreciated!!! I really need that file! —Jason

I think he really needs that file. (Click to view/download .pdf).

While the profitable and cash-rich automated ticketing industry gears up to spend millions to fight Arizona’s citizen initiative to ban the cams, grassroots activists reach people in more creative ways. That includes no-frills fliers that maximize the utilization of the resource at hand ( in this case, paper and toner).

Once cut to size (we recommend using a paper cutter), each sheet yields 8 handouts. Don’t bother printing them in color— instead, consider purchasing a pack of brightly-colored papers. Our favorite is yellow, making the fliers look like post it notes.

Each ream of paper, 500 pages, will yield 4,000 fliers. Average cost? $10.

For the price of a single scam cam ticket, you could create an 80,000 flier nightmare for the politicians, executives, and employees involved with photo radar surveillance.

The Cameras are Coming Down.

DPS political officials, co-conspirators in the biggest case of FRAUD in the history of Arizona, have released their much-anticipated photo scam numbers.

40,000 automated tickets have been generated out of thin air within the past two months, according to the Associated Press.

CameraFRAUD estimates that the illegitimate and fraudulent tickets have a street value of over $6.6 million dollars, if the theft of $165 is successful in all cases.

CameraFRAUD.com, the leading activism group promoting the elimination of photo enforcement, will be taking the fight directly to the heart of the Australian beast: Redflex Headquarters.

The Cameras Are Coming Down.


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.”
