Breaking News: Redflex Van Driver Arrested for DUI

September 9, 2008


SCOTTSDALE – Police arrested the driver of a Redflex photo radar van on suspicion of DUI.

Roderick M. Ruffin, 53, had a blood alcohol content over 0.15 on Saturday while he was driving to Tempe to set up the van, police and company officials said. The legal limit is 0.08, and Ruffin’s blood alcohol level is considered an extreme DUI.

The motorist, in a tape of a 911 call, described the van to a dispatcher.

“On the back of it, it says photo enforcement vehicle on the back and the guy is deuced,” the caller said.


ACTION ALERT: Call Redflex CEO Karen Finley at (623) 207-2000 (press “0” at auto-answer prompt) and tell her drunk driving on OUR streets is unacceptable!
