Default House panel votes to end photo radar

Camera Fraud Article: House panel votes to end photo radar

PHOENIX A House panel has voted to shut down the state’s new photo radar system, foregoing the money it would bring in and opening the door to having taxpayers pay the contractor millions of dollars in damages.

HB 2170 repeals a provision of the budget bill adopted last year, which directed the state Department of Public Safety to contract with a firm to set up a statewide system of cameras to enforce speed and other traffic laws. The 5-3 party line vote Thursday in the Republican-dominated Transportation and Infrastructure Committee sends the measure to the House floor.
