Default Louisiana City Votes ATMs Out

Camera Fraud Article: Louisiana City Votes ATMs Out


runalong86% of Sulphur, Louisiana voters delivered a resounding death knell this weekend by voting out automated ticketing machines (ATMs), otherwise known as photo radar or photo enforcement, TheNewspaper.com is reporting:


In a special election yesterday, a Southern Louisiana city of 22,000 overwhelmingly rejected photo enforcement. Asked, “Shall Ordinance No. 873, M-C Series adopting automated speed enforcement for the City of Sulphur, Louisiana, be repealed?” eighty-six percent of voters said “Yes.” After results are certified on April 13, the Australian speed camera vendor Redflex Traffic Systems will be sent packing…


…voters in Cincinnati, Ohio rejected red light cameras last November. Seventy-six percent of Steubenville, Ohio residents rejected photo radar in 2006. In less recent votes, speed cameras lost by a two-to-one margin in Peoria, Arizona and Batavia, Illinois. Anchorage, Alaska also rejected a photo radar program in 1997.


The next referendum on automated ticketing is set for Chillicothe, Ohio where enthusiastic residents succeeded in gathering more than double the amount of signatures required to qualify for the ballot.
