Default So, You’re Driving Along One Day…

Camera Fraud Article: So, You’re Driving Along One Day…


SHARP EDGES: Is this sign more useful than a photo radar

SHARP EDGES: Is this sign more useful than a photo radar "tali-van"?


…maybe you’re from out-of-state and need help,


…or, maybe you have your pregnant wife with you who just went into labor,


…worse yet, perhaps you were just involved in a serious accident.


But fear not: You see a marked DPS or Scottsdale Police vehicle just up ahead!


You run up to it, yelling for help. But there’s no help to be found. Instead, a note is taped to the window:


This is an unoccupied vehicle.

If you have an emergency please call 911.


Apparently, the new “enhanced security” changes made by Redflex and American Traffic Solutions to their automated ticketing vans consist of a modern version of ding-dong-ditch: park the vehicle, leave a note on the window, and get the hell out of there as fast as you can. (Not that having an untrained private contractor in the van is any better during an emergency, especially when they aren’t even allowed or able defend themselves while being placed in danger by their employer.)


Fear not those unintended consequences of delaying help to those who might be seeking emergency services. I’m sure the confusion, panic, and potential for loss of life due to such a delay would just be a precursor to a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the photo radar companies, as well as the police agencies who unlawfully outsource their duties (and vehicle designs/emblems) to private contractors.


Of course, such a lawsuit against the state or various cities would just be paid for by your tax dollars.


One thing is for sure: If such an unfortunate scenario did become reality, there’s no room to claim they never imagined such a situation.


Why?


Because the State of Arizona, as well as ATS and Redflex, read it here first.
