Default 3,500 Out of 3,600 Can’t Be Wrong

Camera Fraud Article: 3,500 Out of 3,600 Can’t Be Wrong

Time to stick a fork in Arizona’s beleaguered statewide photo enforcement program. The automated ticketing scheme ran by Redflex mailed out over 3,600 “notices” to individuals demanding that they appear for court this morning in just one jurisdiction. CameraFRAUD estimates that less than 100 people actually showed up, many of whom were there for non-photo tickets.


Those 3,500 are in good company: ATS and Redflex executives have been known to ignore their own tickets. Rightfully so: you are not obligated to appear for court unless you have been properly served.


At one point, a court employee exited the building to ask the people waiting out in the heat if anyone “just wanted to take care of their ticket and pay it.” Only one individual was seen taking that offer. It’s assumed that almost everyone else was going to demand a court hearing. KTAR 92.3 FM confirmed it:


Only a handful of those ordered to the county’s downtown justice center actually showed up. And like most, Keith Roper said he’s not paying up. Roper said he just showed up to oppose the ticket. “I think it’s ridiculous…”I’m gonna oppose it as much as I can.” [...] Most of the people KTAR spoke to that showed up for court said they won’t pay the ticket and will fight it in court.


So… if thousands of “tickets” are mailed out in the desert, and no one responds, does the State’s cash register still make a sound?
