Justice is served in Star Valley Arizona.
Could a deluge of Star Valley tickets end up being dismissed because of the victory of one woman against their photo enforcement division scheme headed by Redflex? It’s looking that way.
Michele Ann Power of Chandler, AZ was traveling through Star Valley, which is technically a speed trap, when she was flashed by a Redflex scamera. She fought back, demanded to face her accuser in court becoming the first person to do so under the Redflex/Star Valley photo enforcement scheme. Last week she won because the low level employee of the city whose job it is to sign off on the fraudulent tickets was not even in the country during the hearings.
The town manager and attorney, Tim Grier, put on his fraudster hat during subsequent interviews to complain that the system could not bilk Power out of her money under a “technicality.” What he calls a technicality, the rest of this country refers to as due process, as protected by the United States Constitution.
This leads one to wonder where Grier attended law school and if he was ever introduced to that concept. Star Valley residents should probably launch an investigation into his conduct as a willing party in an illegal scam being carried out by Redflex Traffic Systems under his watch.
The Payson Roundup has the complete story of the ticket’s dismissal.
Others who have been sent photo violations are being encouraged to challenge them because the employee in charge of signing off on thousands of tickets no longer works for the city.
We would include contact info for the Town of Star Valley and Tim Grier, but they are too busy scamming the driving public to maintain a functioning website. Check back later and we may have an update.

There was plenty of good news last week in the world of cameras coming down or cameras staying away.
Bullhead City, AZ had been debating the horrible idea of introducing dangerous red light cameras into their intersections. The mayor Jack Hakim, spent two years pushing for the marriage between his city and Redflex Traffic Systems. After calls and emails by citizens of Bullhead who refused to fall victim to this scam, Hakim was forced to back off his love for money over safety. When it was all said and done, the mayor conceded after the city council voted 7-0 in favor of nixing the proposed contract. Quoting the mayor,

The Cameras are Coming Down Getting Wrapped?
Apparently taking a break from screaming kids at various valley malls, a team of Saint Nicks decided to deal a temporary death-blow to various Redflex cameras in the City of Tempe.
Armed with wrapping paper and gift boxes, these anti-surveillance Santas boldly delivered some holiday cheer to the delight of passing motorists.
Much like the “post-it note ninja,” the modus operandi seems to be the same: Active resistance through non-violent, non-damaging means.
