Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar Makes National Press
December 4, 2009
The Associated Press, New York Times and even the Drudge Report are all spreading the word about the nation-wide anti photo radar movement. Those at Redflex may not acknowledge that it exists, but we are pretty sure it does.
It seems everyone is now finding out the dirty little secret of the absolute failure of the contract between Arizona DP$ and Redflex. You don’t have to take our word for it however. Just ask national media outlets. The AP first ran a story on December 30th about the program, mentioning Shawn Dow of The Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar.
[efoods]“I see all the cameras in Arizona completely coming down ” in 2010, said Shawn Dow, chairman of Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar, which is trying to get a measure banning the cameras on the November ballot. “The citizens of Arizona took away the cash cow of Arizona by refusing to pay.”
Enjoy your final 11 months in AZ, Redflex. Make sure to book your moving vans early.
State to abandon photo radar?
January 4, 2010
I’ve been away for a week and oh how things have changed. The New York Times ran a story over the weekend with this headline: Arizona May Abandon Speed Cameras on Highways.
The headline is based, presumably, on a quote from Shawn Dow, chairman of the group that hopes to put the issue on the November ballot.
Dow may hate the cameras. I certainly hate the cameras, as I don’t believe we should be giving up our rights in exchange for some bogus promise that we’ll be safer. But the state abandoning the program? Doubtful.
You may recall that it was Gov. Janet Napolitano who ushered in photo radar on Arizona’s freeways and highways in January 2008, saying it would raise $90 million for the state.
