FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—After investigating a tip from a CameraFRAUD volunteer regarding automated ticketing equipment being left unsecured and open to the public, a letter has been drafted requesting an immediate suspension of fixed-station photo enforcement within the City of Mesa.


CameraFRAUD can confirm that photo enforcement equipment located at Alma School and Guadalupe was left unlocked and open to tampering for at least five days, from at least 2/28 through 3/4/2009. Complaints regarding this intersection were received over a week earlier by CameraFRAUD, relating to mystery flashes when no vehicles appeared to be in the intersection or were otherwise obeying traffic laws.


One official close to the arrangement between the Mesa and ATS said that they were “never made aware of the breach,” which has now been quietly fixed by the vendor.


WIDE OPEN: This is your accuser.

Day One: Wide Open.



From the letter: “As the pictures taken by our volunteers show, the exposed equipment was susceptible to tampering and unauthorized modification. It’s impossible to know if the timing of the equipment or critical settings were modified by vandals, children, or curious pedestrians.”


Included in the letter is a four-point request outlining a reasonable solution to preventing inaccurate accusations and future security breaches with photo enforcement and photo radar equipment:


Five Days Later, At Night: Still Unlocked and Open

Five Days Later, At Night: Still Unlocked and Open



1.    Immediate suspension of all fixed-location red light and speed photo enforcement activity until a thorough investigation and report is completed by your department into the security of the equipment used by ATS.


2.    Dismissal of all “notice of violations” and/or traffic complaints generated by the equipment at Alma School and Guadalupe for all time periods where the equipment was left unsecured.


3.    Require substantial evidence from ATS proving beyond a reasonable doubt that each of their fixed systems in Mesa has been secure for at least the past twelve (12) months.


4.    Require ATS to obtain an independent evaluation of their system security at least every sixty (60) days in order to operate within the City of Mesa, and to prevent reoccurrences of negligence.
