That’s the message that Representative Andy Biggs, R-Gilbert, believes that everyone should be privy to.
State lawmakers were “surprised” to learn that the “photo enforcement cameras they authorized last year to catch speeders are actually taking - and keeping - videos of everyone who passes,” according to the East Valley Tribune.
“…they learned that the cameras do more than snap still photos of those clocked driving at least 11 miles over the speed limit. In fact, they actually are recording streaming video around-the-clock.
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Gilbert, said what’s worse is that Redflex Traffic Systems, the private company hired by the state to set up and operate the cameras, advertises that it has technology that actually can scan in the license plates of every vehicle that passes the cameras. And that, Biggs said, allows creation of a database that can find out where people have been at any given time.”
Of course, this isn’t news to the people who’ve read CameraFRAUD.com over the past 4 1/2 months.
In honor of their rekindled interest in representing the will of the people, we humbly present the following reading list. Feel free to send this list to your state reps (click for lookup/contact info).
