Gregg Ostro, Media Guru, Entrepeneur, Redflex Hack

February 6, 2010

Thanks goes out to everyone who showed up today, especially to our volunteers who make everything possible. There will be a lot more to come on the success of our efforts. Many, many thanks to Sheriff Paul Babeu and special thanks to Dean Martin for attending as well.

He already answered the question four times Gregg. It's not going to change.

Everyone in attendance is probably wondering who the man in the sunglasses and black coat was. He was the memorable individual who fancied repeating questions to Sheriff Babeu and Dean Martin in an attempt to get a positive sound bite about photo traffic enforcement. He is Gregg Ostro of Go Media Co who was spotted later scanning his card to gain entrance to the Redflex building and “safely” driving his Black Cadillac Escalade backwards to conceal his license plate from our volunteers. We’re not sure what you are so worried about, if you weren’t doing anything wrong. 😉

He would not identify himself at first, but Gregg will never miss a chance to stroke his own ego. We applaud you Mr. Ostro for keeping it to yourself long enough to make everyone wonder why someone would show up and act in the covert manner that you did.

We all sincerely thank you for giving Sheriff Babeu and Treasurer Martin the chance to clearly repeat their distaste for photo traffic enforcement.

Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar would love to know what your relationship with Redflex Traffic Systems is, in the interest of total disclosure.

We invite all of our supporters to take a look at the great work Ostro does and consider him for your next corporate video production. We’re sure he must do a great job if an esteemed multi-national, Australian-based company like Redflex would allow you to work on their behalf. We’d ask you to assist with our video production, but our people aren’t paid.

We also apologize on behalf of anyone who acted inappropriately towards you, but that’s what you were probably going for, is it not?


Offbeat: Seismic Siren New Police Tool

December 8, 2008

badgeTaking a brief break from the photo scam melee, we bring you this blurb from Wired News regarding a new police siren that can actually be felt:

…Fed up with earbud-wearing, cell phone-yakking motorists who don’t heed sirens, police across the country are turning to a new attention-getting tool–low-frequency sound waves so strong they can actually be felt up to 200 feet away.
[…]
It feels like a tremor inside the vehicle,” says Tom Morgan, police market vice president for Federal Signal, which makes the seismic sirens […] the system emits a 10-second, 109-decibel burst through two subwoofers mounted on the patrol car’s bumper.
Not to be outdone, beleaguered photo scam company American Traffic Solutions is rumored to be developing a vibrating road that actually shakes loose the change from driver’s pockets as they pass photo enforcement zones.
