In their latest money grabbing campaign, Arizona is set to extend their welcome mat to the motoring public forced to travel the state's major roadway corridors during this Thanksgiving holiday on Interstates 10 and 40.
According to the AZ Republic article
: DPS is using its entire fleet of 42 speed-enforcement vans and about 20 fixed units to cover all of I-10 and I-40 in Arizona.
Units are triggered when a driver is going 10 mph or more past the posted speed limit.
Violators are notified by mail within 30 days and must pay a fine of roughly $185.
The civil violation does not have any bearing on a driver's license, but anyone caught traveling at 20 mph or more over the speed limit will face a criminal charge [how nice].
DPS operates more than 60 mobile-speed cameras.
Arizona's Napolitano and Vanderpool extend their heartfelt holiday wishes (30 days later in your mailbox).
