Default A Slippery Slope…

Camera Fraud Article: A Slippery Slope…


Months ago when the state’s photo traffic enforcement program started, those who cared about their civil liberties objected loudly. Their argument was that the cameras represented a “slippery slope” that would lead us to the surveillance state, and we would lose our right to move freely about our own state and country without being monitored by Big Brother’s taxing cameras.


Well, you know what they say about karma:

Redflex is encountering slippery slopes of its own!


This is on the Westbound i10 approaching 43rd Ave. I would love to have stopped and investigate the matter, but I was on my way to work when I saw this. My guess is that the operator of the “Tali-van” tried to set up his little money machine on the berm, but was countered by the realities of gravity. Faced with ditching his vehicle and quarter million dollar camera onto the side of the freeway, he probably locked up his brakes and called for help.


DPS was on hand, at the bidding of their Redflex masters no doubt, to protect the quarter million dollar camera inside the van.


Oh, and for public safety.


Not so much for the driver though, I imagine he’s been replaced already.
