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:

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.

“Ban the Scameras” is Back! Let’s Get Moving on this Arizona

February 14, 2012

Arizona Senators are almost begging to hear from you on this matter. They’re ready to pass this bill, so let’s make sure they know how excited we are that they’re ready to listen and act.

SCR-1029 would put an all-out photo ticketing ban on the ballot in November of this year. Contact your AZ Senators today [list].

Arizona Gets Another Chance to Ban the Cameras

The Arizona Senate Judiciary Committee met yesterday and the main item discussed was SCR 1029, which would give the citizens of Arizona that elusive vote they’ve been screaming from the rooftops for years to get.
The Committee passed the measure by a 4-1 vote and sent it to the Senate floor, where it should be voted on. Although, that’s not a done deal.By 2008, the majority of AZ motorists had grown tired of being treated like lab rats, by then Spy-in-Chief (and Governor) Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano and her Redflex-sponsored peep show aka the freeway speed cameras.

After setting up this unprecedented violation of every sacred right that motorists have been guaranteed by the US and Arizona Constitutions, turning the freeway system into a cluster… disaster area, she blew out of town to become head of DHS, where she now is able to scan and grope just about anyone passing through an airport without any reasonable suspicion.

It’s clear that motorists and travelers don’t enjoy having their liberties violated for the profit of private and sometimes foreign (Redflex) contractors while complicit government agencies make up stories about safety being their concern.

It doesn’t take a traffic engineer to figure out that adding more distractions in the form of flashing camera boxes and tinkering with signal timing to make sure “violations” remain in the profitable range, actually makes intersections more dangerous.

But, just in case one needed the latest result of independent, university study, here’s USF blasting camera systems to bits as the dangerous boondoggle they are. [link]

Getting back to the situation unfolding in AZ, this is no done deal. In 2011, the same SCR (Senate Resolution) passed with a 20-10 vote and then was sat on by the rapidly expanding posterior of then Speaker of the House, Kirk Adams (RINO) who is now running for U.S. Congress.

The resolution died an unceremonious death, but with Adams out of the way, there is new hope for Arizona.

Taking it one step at a time, however, SCR 1029 need to have that floor vote, which is a great bet to pass. Then House members like Michelle Ugenti (R), who is very much in favor of the citizens vote to ban camera systems will be heavily urged to push this measure to a house floor vote as well.

That’s an oversimplification of the legislative process to be sure, but the conclusion for today is that SCR 1029 is off to a good start.

Arizonans, let’s make sure that floor vote happens in the Senate at rapid-fire pace.

Let those elected officials know just how excited AZ is to kick Redflex and ATS off your streets and intersections for good!

Legislature Passes a Bill to Raise Photo Tickets by $13

April 20, 2011

Can anyone tell members of the Arizona House and Senate were anxious to “take their ball and go home?” After burning the midnight oil all the way until 5:30 am today, dozens of bills were passed in a flurry.

One of the bills would raise photo tickets by $13, for those who have been personally served. SB1398, as it now appears, would do just that, but who knows what it will say when the final version is updated.

We can be certain about one thing, in the first legislative session, Arizona passed exactly zero bills that would curb or completely eliminate photo radar and red light cameras from our roads and intersections. And nobody is surprised.

Check back later for more details on what this bill actually says when someone gets around to posting the final version and if the Gov, Jan Brewer, decides not to veto it.


BREAKING: Arizona Governor’s Office Makes a Deal

March 31, 2011

In talks with legislators in the AZ House, the reality has set in that the red light and photo radar scameras are not going anywhere until at least 2012. Speaker Kirk Adams has been pounded with phone calls and emails, but won’t budge on this issue.

There is however, some really good news to report. Governor Jan Brewer’s office has offered an olive branch to CameraFRAUD supporters. They have agreed to create a “citizens exempt from photo tickets” list for the rest of 2011.

Governor Brewer has said in the past that she does not like the photo ticketing system and wants to see a citizens vote on the matter.

Currently, only politicians, judges and Redflex and ATS employees are exempt from photo tickets, so this will be a special Arizona residents list which will be filed with courts and the Motor Vehicles Department. Redflex and ATS would still issue tickets to alleged “violators,” but if they’re on the list, they may ignore the tickets, which will be dismissed automatically by the courts, without being assigned to process servers.

There is a deadline of 5 p.m. on Friday to get on this list and there is a short form that must be filled out, which can be obtained from the governor’s office.

Governor Brewer’s Chief of Staff, Eileen Klein has requested that those who wish to be put on the list fill out the contact form here.

Please put “CameraFRAUD.com” in the topic field and just include a brief request to be sent the form for the “exempt from photo tickets” list.

Requests received after 5 pm Arizona time tomorrow will not be honored.

If you have any questions about the program, the governor’s office can be reached by phone at (602) 542-4331.


State senator Linda Gray’s district is invaded by the RINO Patrol

March 15, 2011

The Arizona Republican Party’s platform clearly states that it is against the use of photo radar, yet Linda Gray continues to vote in favor of it. She voted no to both SB 1352 and SCR 1029, which would abolish the use of photo radar.

SCR 1029 would require a citizens’ vote to enact the ban and it passed the AZ Senate last week. Will the AZ House Republicans do the right thing and vote to ban the dangerous money making scam run by ATS and Redflex of Australia?

The volunteers who put fliers up in District 10, which is in Glendale, sent in a copy of the flyer and a little video.

Enjoy!

Also, here’s a little challenge to our democrat supporters: Not one of your reps in the Senate voted in favor of SB 1352 and only Kyrsten Sinema voted for SCR 1029. Please contact democrat members of the House and let them know you want ALL the cameras to come down and deserve to vote on it.

Yes on SCR 1029!


Former Redflex Lobbyist Speaks Out Against Scam Tickets

February 22, 2011

This is quite a development. Mike Williams, who spent years lobbying for Redflex is going after his former company, with legislation intended to cut down on what he calls “due process violations.”

You know things are going badly when the person you relied on to pitch your admitted scam to the public is now lobbying against you.
