The tide may be finally beginning to turn, as reported by Arizona Central. An effort to ban photo speed enforcement on Arizona highways advanced Thursday when lawmakers passed a bill out of committee. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee voted 5-2 to recommend approval of House Bill 2106, which would force the removal of the cameras now installed on Interstate 10, Loop 101 and other highways.
“This was done in the name of revenue,” said Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Gilbert, who voted for the ban. “It is a speed tax, and it is being done to fund social programs.”
