Was anyone else lucky enough to get their picture taken by the camera on Sunday June 7th, or any other f-ing day for that matter. Apperantly I was doing 46 in a 35.

I remember talking with my brother and slowing down then all of the sudden FLASH, I guess I should have talked less and slowed more. It was an S-10 Blazer with a tall pole.

Are these things legal still in AZ? I know that red-light cameras have been disconnected in my city. I don't see any sense in fighting it unless there is an active movement to not allow this technology.

Rod,

It's been there for the past 3 weeks or so in BHC. Last Fri and Sat there were signs warning "Photo Enforcement Ahead". Sorry to hear you got nailed.

Did they do away with the red light cam on Harbor and Chapman?

They say you can ignore them. If they don't serve you within three months they drop it. BoatCop might know more. If it's a corporate registered vehicle they will not try to serve you. Again, dropped after a few months because of failure to serve you.

They have tried to crack down on enforcement, but who knows? :)coffee

I read in the Fullerton paper that due to the nature i.e. revenue sharing portion of the contract, the cameras were not legal.

Yes on 95 just before the 40.

I will be back out at the end of July for a week so I would hate to let go unaddressed.

Yes you are correct. BUT I understand if you sign, return, or in any way acknowledge you got the letter......you waved your rights, and you're on the hook. If you get served, you're on the hook, plus like $25. I heard they do not process serve out of state, but I don't know if this is still the case.

Mine is now dropped!!! :)devil :)devil :)devil :D

I dont know how these vans actually work for instance does there have to be someone in the van to take the picture or is it automatic at a certain speed that it goes off ? They have been leaving them on the 60 out by me for weeks at a time in the same spot with noone in them and the pole with the camera isnt even up.

I see them on my commute often, they seem to pick different locations to f with you. Every time I drive by one, I used to give it the "shocker", now I flip it off, should make for a good picture...

Glad to hear it.

Saw that one last week. There was a sign, but I didn't have my reading glasses on. It looking something like "Please don't vandalize the enforcement vehicles". I could be wrong.....
LMAO

It's true. I have a couple friends that got them and said fock it. I tried it and was served one week before the three months would have been up.

I was caught off guard when I answered the door because I'd forgotten all about it. The guy said are you Mark?.... I said yes without any hesitation...:)hammers

They were also kind enough to charge me an extra 26.00 service fee....:)

If I do get another one, and I just may....:D I'm going to put a small post-it on the inside of my front door to remind me I'm not Mark.....:)bulb:D

Is there always a warning sign? I think I drove by that one by the 40 a couple of weeks ago, but never saw any warning signs or anything. I think the van had a sticker with "parking Enforcement" on it or something like that.

I was in Phoenix last week for some work and got the speed radar flash on the freeway. I was doing 55, the limit, as a red dodge truck was passing me at about 58-60 mph in the #1 lane. Lets see what happens and if they are properly reviewed and sent out.

Perhaps it's a fitting venue: The Senate Retirement Committee voted to retire the state's photo-enforcement system, effective next year.

If approved by the full Legislature, the ban would apply to all cameras on the state's highway system. The state has been using the cameras to catch speeders since October.

The bill was introduced by Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City, as a strike-everything amendment to Senate Bill 1352, which originally dealt with the state retirement system.
Gould used the strike-everything maneuver to give new life to his push to do away with the controversial cameras after his original bill to ban photo enforcement failed to get a hearing.

"I think you've got a majority of people who don't like photo radar," Gould said, adding he is referring to the general population.

"It's too much power for the government," Gould said. "They (the cameras) can track you point to point. It's too '1984' for me," he added, referring to the novel by George Orwell.

The bill passed on a 3-1 vote and now is headed for full Senate consideration.

A measure to beef up photo en- forcement by including penalties against the driver's license for speed violations was held Wednesday after a lengthy Senate debate and appears headed for defeat.
