With all five ballot initiatives to ban scameras across the country being upheld, it looks like the word is getting out on a national level that photo ticketing programs are not wanted by the people. In fact, all 15 times photo ticketing has gone to a public vote, it has been banned by the citizens.
Paradise Valley Hidden Scamera Van
CameraFRAUD volunteers who collected signatures on election day (November 2nd) for the initiative to Ban Photo Ticketing and Redflex in Paradise Valley can tell you first-hand that residents of that town don’t want the scam on their streets either.
The Washington Times just posted an editorial about the issue and the fact that Big Brother keeps losing at the ballot box.
It’s time for elected officials to park the photo-radar vans and pull down the intersection spy cameras. Aside from a gullible minority, you’re not fooling anyone. Republicans, Democrats and independents rarely agree on issues of public policy, but on this they speak with one voice. State legislatures in Arkansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin have listened to the people and adopted statewide laws prohibiting automated enforcement. It’s time for the rest of the states to give Big Brother his walking papers.

Leave it to a Judge endorsed by Janet Napolitano to give a foreign corporation yet another excuse to operate illegally while claiming to be law enforcement.
Larry King (no not that one), a Judge who was in Paradise Valley’s Town Council Meeting, blurted out “what you have done is deputize Redflex.” This was after PV’s current Chief of Police admitted that their officers never review photo tickets before they are sent out to alleged violators.
CameraFRAUD would like to know which Redflex employee was sworn in and took an oath to achieve deputy status.
When it comes to Redflex’s backwards version of justice, this is what passes for oversight: Letting their own employees audit the tickets.
As if that weren’t enough to raise some red flags about the scameras in PV, former mayor and current council member Vernon Parker pointed out that the accident trend in his town is up and down which conflicts with all the reports that cameras = safer roads. He also questioned why scam vans are usually hidden, as seen in the below picture.
Hidden Redflex talivan causes driver distraction
Those are great questions, but the answer is that Redflex is trying to make a profit and will not let facts and driver safety stand in their way.
If you’ve come across this article after researching Paradise Valley as a resort destination – it really is a beautiful place, as long as you don’t mind being surveilled at just about every major intersection and the town along with Redflex playing “Gotcha” by hiding photo radar vans in the bushes.

John Wintersteen, the former Chief of Police of Paradise Valley was the guest of honor at the Scamera Summit Luncheon in January, where he was asked by Redflex and ATS to file a petition to subvert due process in Arizona which would make the photo ticketing scam more profitable.
On Thursday, he debated CameraFRAUD on Fox 10 and exposed himself as the Redflex advocate that he is, calling them “an upstanding company.” Watch as his arguments fall apart one by one.
