Default ATS, Redflex Vans Targeted for Protest

Camera Fraud Article: ATS, Redflex Vans Targeted for Protest

van-leavingAn unannounced protest last Friday morning targeted an American Traffic Solutions’ van in Mesa as well as a Redflex van in Tempe.

Numerous volunteers from CameraFRAUD appeared for a “flash mob” around 7 AM. Large signs reading “Scam Cam Zone”, “Pirates Ahead,” as well as”Fraud Alert” were used to warn drivers of the speed trap ahead near University and Stapley. Many motorists honked and yelled in support of the demonstration.

“CameraFRAUD demonstration signs reduced traffic speeds up to 50%, thereby causing the van driver to soon leave due to an unprofitable location…” said one volunteer. “Perhaps the City of Mesa should contract with us instead.”

Time is money with profit-rich photo radar vans. Any disruption to their operation could instantly destroy their profit margin for the day.

goodbookWith the early Mesa victory, it was off to an unmanned Redflex van in Tempe near McClintock and Elliot. Tempe police eventually arrived but watched from a distance. Concerned about their equipment, Redflex dispatched an employee to the scene.

For some reason, the talivan operator didn’t want to be identified, and tried to duck into a large book full of policies and procedures.

The unannounced demonstrations will continue.
