Redflex in Shambles: Karen Finley Flees Along with 2 Other Top Execs

March 2, 2013

Arizona, this one’s for you.

More fallout from the Redflex (we’re too corrupt for) Chicago Scandal. This time investors and bought politicians should be running for cover, deep cover. That being said…..

Memo to Arizona Politicians:

You have refused to do anything about a system that was too corrupt for Chicago and for that you will pay dearly. Yes, THAT Chicago – the one whose mayor is Rahm Emanuel.

Members of the Arizona Republican Party, like Rep Karen Fann for example, have been given opportunities to ban Redflex and their scamera boxes from the roadways of Arizona, multiple times. Your party platform specifically states you are to oppose photo radar.

However, when given legislation (SB 1352, SCR 1029, HB 2579) or a wildly popular initiative that would get rid of Redflex and their unconstitutional system of phoney baloney ticketing, all we hear are excuses. It’s deafening and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

For the democrats who claim to give a rip about civil liberties – your defense of photo radar makes you a complete joke.

The game is ending and so is your career. Deal with it.

Speaking of people whose career is over with, Karen Finley, Redflex CEO aka the Wicked Witch of the West is done, fired, adios.

finleyredflexGone with her are two other top executives, the CFO and top attorney (General Counsel). The Redflex Death Watch is currently entering it’s 4th week and we’re on the third halt of trading their stock. It will resume trading on Tuesday in Australia and so far the predictions are not good.

This house of cards has been swaying violently ever since Janet Napolitano installed their ring of spy cameras across Arizona highways only to skip town and head to D.C. The Redflex Chicago Scandal (yet to be named) will end the company as we know it. Investor confidence is shattered and will likely result in a sale with a measly sum compared to the 2011 bid by the Carlyle Group and Macquarie.

They should have done the deal and now they’re out of luck.

“Out of luck” is the best that any politician in Arizona who has defended photo radar or taken money from Redflex and their lobbyists can hope for. Behind bars is another scenario.

Some advice to Reps Karen Fann, Sonny Borrelli, Victoria Steele and Juan Escamilla – you’d better give any money back you took from the Redflex Gangsters and vote YES on the “Photo Radar Prohibition” bill when it goes to a floor vote in the AZ House. If this company and their kind is too corrupt for Chicago, think about what’s about to happen in Arizona.

This is just getting started. The cameras are coming down!

Who knew it would be Chicago that finally crushed Redflex?


FLASH: Redflex Traffic Systems Officially in Panic Mode

February 27, 2013

The Latest from WarOnDriving.com:

Far be it for a driving politics website like this one to make a judgment call on investing, especially in foreign trades.

However, it’s easy to spot a company who’s panicking as they’re usually the ones running around with their pants on fire.

From the “we swear this is standard procedure file,” Redflex Traffic Systems has been forced to announce a request for a trading halt on the ASX (Australian) where shares of Redflex Holdings, Inc are exchanged. [Announcement]

This is the second time this month Redflex has requested such a halt ahead of big news about the results of ongoing investigations into the company’s business dealings.

Since the February 6th announcement, shares of ASX:RDF are down 33%. Another such drop would place them well below $1.00 (AUS) per share, which would be near 10 year lows for the stock.

The company making the same move twice in the same month, along with all the other bad news out of Chicago spells trouble for Redflex, all over the globe.


Rahm Emanuel’s Redflex “Police State” Surveillance Grid

November 10, 2011

They are calling them “safety zones,” but they’ll cover near 70% of the city of Chicago according to a report by The Chicago Sun Times below.

This map outlines the consequences of a bill that just passed through both houses of Illinois legislature. If Governor Quinn signs off on this monster, the bulk of the city of Chicago will become eligible for surveillance by a profit driven, corrupt foreign corporation, Redflex Traffic Systems. This is clearly not about safety.

Redflex Speed Cameras in IL to Ticket Drivers for 1 MPH Over?

October 24, 2011

Rahm Emanuel’s speed camera bill, also known as HB-3851 in the Illinois Legislature has no threshold for speed written into it. (HB-3851)

What this means is that a “violation” of just 1 MPH over the speed limit could end up costing Chicago motorists $100.00.

Rahm Emanuel Desperate for Some Speed… Cameras…

October 21, 2011

Chicago is the so-called “Red Light Camera Capitol” of the United States. Their residents would be hard-pressed to argue with that title.

But now, Mayor Emanuel wants to add speed cameras to the Windy City’s repertoire of revenue extractors despite his promise over the summer that he wouldn’t “nickel and dime taxpayers.”
