Just as many members of the US House and Senate don’t understand the constitution, it seems many members of Arizona legislature have the same struggles with our state version.
The argument against SB1352, the Photo Radar Prohibition Bill most used by the Republicans who voted against it seems to be coming straight from Redflex: “The state shouldn’t tell the cities what to do.”

The early returns are in on SB1352 and it’s not what we were hoping for. The worst part about this vote is how many republicans violated their own party platform and voted with the democrats to continue the shredding of your constitutional rights. Every single Democrat voted no if you’re scoring at home.

The Arizona Senate has just released their floor calendar for tomorrow and SB1352, the “Photo Radar Prohibition” bill will go to a full vote on the floor. If it passes, the House will have to vote on it before it can go to the governor.

The photo radar prohibition bill has jumped over its first hurdle in Arizona State Legislature. It was passed out of the Government Reform Committee. This is the first step to kicking Redflex and ATS off your streets.

Last week, an email was sent out to the CameraFRAUD meetup group about SB1352 being heard in the Government Reform Committee on Wednesday February 16th, starting at 9 am.
Quoting from the letter:
If you are a big supporter of our cause or haven’t been involved in a while, we absolutely need your help! We’ve maneuvered SB1352 into the Government Affairs committee, where 4 of the members actually cosponsored it. If the committee approves it, the bill can be moved to the Senate floor for a debate.
Wednesday February 16th, 9 am.
Arizona State Senate – Gov’t Reform Committee
1700 W Washington
Phoenix, AZ 85007
You will be able to find the group out front around 0830.
Come ready to speak, even if it’s just for a minute or two. We need as many people as possible. Be positive and remember that we are winning this argument now.
Let’s all get down to the capitol complex and speak out in favor of this ban on photo ticketing! We’ve put up with this long enough and it’s time to put a stop to the shortened yellow lights, increased collisions, Constitution shredding and unwarranted surveillance-tracking.

Redflex is caught red-handed again. Not only is their name all over the recent “study” released by the Insurance Institute of Higher Safety (IIHS), but as always, the numbers don’t add up.
