Default DPS Doublespeak: Cameras Called “Onerous”

Camera Fraud Article: DPS Doublespeak: Cameras Called “Onerous”


AZDPSRemember years ago when the City of Scottsdale decided to install photo radar cameras on the Loop 101, before the State of Arizona took over the project?


Before DPS was in a position to benefit directly from the money the cameras pull in, the tune seemed to be a bit different regarding officer response in areas where cameras are installed.


In a Phoenix New Times article from February 2007, a high-ranking official with DPS didn’t seem too pleased with the automated ticketing machines:


DPS Commander Tom Woodward says patrolmen found the Loop 101 cameras onerous. He said they may have put the public’s safety at risk.


“It deterred officers assigned to the East Valley from working that area,” Woodward says. “We still responded to calls, but officers were not in that area working traffic proactively as much as they were prior to photo enforcement.”


If Scottsdale’s small experiment on the Loop 101 with American Traffic Solutions may have put the public’s safety at risk, what does that say about the state’s massive contract with beleaguered Redflex Group?
