AZ ACTIVISTS PLAN PHOTO RADAR PROTEST

August 19, 2008

Fraud and deceit alleged on the part of camera operators

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Aug 20, 2008 (Direct news media distribution)—- Local activists will soon express their disapproval with Redflex Group and American Traffic Solutions, Inc., two suppliers of automated traffic-enforcement equipment to the State of Arizona and various municipalities.

WHEN: Friday, August 22nd – 5:00 PM

WHERE: N.E. corner, Scottsdale Road and Thomas Road, Scottsdale, AZ.

WHY: CameraFRAUD.com, a web blog detailing the activities and politics behind the cameras, is inviting the public to join other valley activists.

Recently revealed information shows that Redflex Group and the Department of Public Safety may have knowingly conspired to use non-certified radar guns in at least two of their mobile van units, a move that prompted the agency to temporarily remove the vans from service.

Redflex had offered to refund up to 4,800 citations that were issued, but then later agreed with DPS that such a refund wasn’t necessary—calling the breach of due process an “honest mistake,” according to the Easy Valley Tribune1.

In July, Redflex was forced to terminate an employee who was discovered by the Arizona Secretary of State’s office to have broken no less than four Arizona laws, including using an official notary stamp to falsify documents relating to traffic citations2.

Those attending the protest are advised to bring plenty of drinking water as temperatures are expected to reach 103 degrees.

Redflex Group is a privately-held company based in Australia performing law-enforcement activities in the United States3.

American Traffic Solutions, Inc., is headquartered in Scottsdale AZ, along with the company’s Orwellian “Global Network Operations Center,” which is “linked to all active cameras and data collection devices worldwide”4.

CameraFRAUD.com, founded in 2008, is a non-partisan group dedicated to “Slowing, Stopping, and Reversing the Theft of our Privacy.” They can be reached online at http://www.CameraFRAUD.com. Limited media interviews or questions may be requested via email at media@CameraFRAUD.com.
