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.


The Axis of Fraud is Trying to Buy a Congressman in AZ

April 17, 2012

They already own countless city council members, mayors and state legislators so it only makes sense that the scamera lobby would want to move on up and buy themselves a brand new Congressman as well.

Given Ben Quayle’s penchant for posting photos all over the web for Nik Richie’s Dirty Scottsdale under an assumed identity, photo fraud vendors Redflex and American Traffic Solutions (ATS) were a perfect fit for campaign financiers to the little internet prankster turned Congressman.

George, “The Hitman” Hittner, executive general counsel of the mafia-like corporate leech, ATS (owned by Goldman Sachs), has thrown his support behind Quayle. Redflex’s Jay Heiler has been Quayle’s spokesman since his 2010 Congressional campaign.

Arizona should really be proud to be represented by such a creepy guy, who once faked having a family, just to seem somewhat normal compared to his internet persona, “Brock Landers.” Brock (also the name of a character from the almost-porn flick Boogie Nights) spent day and night posting pictures of women at Scottsdale night clubs in various stages of intoxication and undress.

Don’t let Brock, err Ben fool you, those days of what some conservatives in Arizona call “internet porn” really prepared him to be a “responsible adult” and cosponsor the SOPA bill which would shut down any website at the drop of a hat if the almighty DOJ didn’t fancy its content. One wonders if Ben’s old buddy Nik would get a pass even though he outed him 2 years ago. At least Nik was kind enough to wait until most of the early ballots had been returned so it wouldn’t cost Brock Ben the election.

Quayle, Hittner and Heiler – what a team!

Halloween Party Crasher at American Traffic Solutions

October 31, 2011

A CameraFRAUD member, who also identified himself as the Post-it Note Bandit sent in a picture from his latest stunt. He’s in the Guy Fawkes costume on the left.

For a company that prides themselves on safety and security, ATS seems to really have an issue practicing what they preach.

You may remember when they left their old building with the doors wide open and sensitive info available for anyone to see!

Our Halloween infiltrator says that the ATS Brass are “real loudmouths when they’re drunk” and has a compromising cell phone video of a Herman Cain type incident between an executive and a low level employee wearing a revealing costume. To be released soon?

Happy Halloween ATS! We’ll be watching you…

TRICK OR TREAT!

=====================================

Editor’s Note:

On November 5th, 2011, an event called “Bank Transfer Day” which has been promoted by both Occupy Wall Street and Anonymous who both have used the Fawkes Mask as a symbol of their distaste for tyrannical government and corporatism. The idea is to take money out of bailout recipient banks and move them to community banks and credit unions.

American Traffic Systems is owned by Goldman Sachs, which was one of, if not the largest benefactor of bailout money. They aren’t just in bed with the banksters, they ARE the banksters.


Colorado Springs Rediscovers the 4th Amendment

October 19, 2011

American Traffic Solutions (ATS) will have to pack up and leave yet another city by the end of 2011. This time it’s Colorado Springs, which is about 70 miles away from another ATS surveilled city, Denver, who is stuck with their cameras into 2012.

ATS, Redflex and their front men always parrot talking points about red light cameras “freeing” up police to go catch criminals. Never mind that most dangerous criminals are caught during routine traffic stops.

WarOnDriving.com: Traffic Camera Vote in Baytown Texas Invalidated; Citizens Angered

October 11, 2011

Many times legislatures or council get things wrong, some times very wrong.

Baytown, TX was one of the many communities whose leadership completely failed them when the decision to install dangerous red light cameras in their intersections.

The driving public was outraged, but Baytown’s city council predictably wasn’t willing to part with the money that American Traffic Solutions(ATS) had promised them.

WarOnDriving.com: AZ: Peoria Shuts Off Red Light Cameras, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley Next?

October 4, 2011

Arizona cities are dropping their so-called “photo enforcement” traffic cameras in a flurry in 2011.

The latest is Peoria, where camera intersections such as 83rd Ave and Thunderbird (above picture) saw tremendous increases in accidents. City officials are now claiming that overall there was a 29% increase over the three year life span of the program, but much larger increases (300-500%) were recorded initially.
