HB 2579 Goes to Arizona House of Reps Transportation Committee on 2/21

February 17, 2013

From the CameraFRAUD meetup group:

Sunday, February 17, 2013 to Thursday, February 21, 2013, 7:00 AM

There’s no way to tell which order the chairman (Karen Fann) will schedule it, but the info is available here – [link]

This bill would make using ANY unmanned devices to issue traffic citations and fines illegal in the state of Arizona. That would mean all of Redflex and ATS’s scameras would come down and be shipped out to another state that still puts up with this unconstitutional racketeering.The best way you as an individual can help would be to swing by the House of Reps building at 1700 W Washington in Phoenix, sign into their system and register as a supporter of this bill. We understand that many of you couldn’t fit that into your schedules, so there’s another option…

The next best thing you could do is send a friendly email to every member of the transportation committee before Thursday and let them know why you personally want these cameras off your streets and traffic lights. They want to hear from you!

Spread the word far and wide that a bill to ban the scameras is once again making its way through Arizona Legislature. We’ve lost by just one vote the last two years, so any help we get could push us over the top this year!

Copy/paste the list below or email each individually:

kfann@azleg.gov, rgray@azleg.gov, vsteele@azleg.gov, bbarton@azleg.gov, sborrelli@azleg.gov, jescamilla@azleg.gov

Ban Redflex and American Traffic Solutions

The Photo Radar Prohibition Bill (HB 2579) will be voted on in the Arizona House of Reps Transportation Committee on Thursday February 21st.

Brewer and ADOT Plotting For Toll Roads?

November 2, 2011

From WarOnDriving:

In 2009, Governor Jan Brewer signed a bill in to law that would allow for toll roads in Arizona. So far, that Toll Road Authority has yet to be activated, but has been lurking like a dark menace.

Talks about converting U.S. I-15 into a Toll Road in Arizona had been going on in the secret chambers of AZ bureaucrats at ADOT until the Governor of Utah, Gary Herbert, caught wind of it.

FOIA Requests: It’s So Easy!

October 5, 2009

desk-with-pile-of-papers

This unnamed bureaucrat will carefully read and respond to your FOIA request!

CameraFRAUD has taken the guesswork out of submitting a Freedom of Information Act to your favorite (or least favorite) government agency with the creation of this handy PDF form.

Best of all, the only personal information you need to offer is your name and signature. The response from the agency will be mailed to CameraFRAUD directly, keeping your address out of the mix.

The steps:

1. Download the form.

2. Complete the form, print it and then be sure to sign it.

3. Add postage and mail it in!

Keep in mind, agencies are usually not required to compile new data or reports, but instead provide to you copies of documents already in existence.  Some data is not covered under FOIA, such as personnel records or anything deemed to be relating to an “ongoing investigation,” but you can always ask anyways.

Need some ideas on what to send, where?

The Honorable Jan Brewer
Governor of Arizona
1700 West Washington
Phoenix, Arizona 85007

(hint: Emails to / from Redflex, anyone?)

Arizona Department of Public Safety
2102 W Encanto Blvd
Phoenix, AZ 85009

(hint: How about reports or memos detailing accidents in photo radar zones? Reports or memos detailing malfunctions? Reports or memos mentioning protests? The possibilities are endless).

Arizona Department of Transportation
PO Box 2100
Phoenix AZ 85001-2100

(hint: All safety studies and statistics relating to photo radar? Copies of all complaints relating to photo radar / enforcement? How about asking them who ordered the Longmore and US-60 traffic camera to be pointed downward towards protesters on 9/25/2009 at 5:00PM?)
