Default Photo Yardwork Tickets Become Reality

Camera Fraud Article: Photo Yardwork Tickets Become Reality


What a

What a "photo yardwork" ticket might look like.


Not satisfied with automated tickets for alleged traffic violations, Scottsdale-based American Traffic Solutions is boldly expanding their big-brother repertoire to go places never gone before:  directly to your house.


Known for their unpopular red-light and speed cameras, ATS will be managing a “litter enforcement program” in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, according to WBRZ News 2, the local ABC affiliate:


“15 workers are getting training on documenting blight with photographs and in generating warning letters and hearing notices to send to property owners.”


In other words, “photo yardwork” ticketing has arrived and, like always, it’s all about the money:


Violators face possible fines of $117, plus $50 in court costs if they fail to correct the violation within 15 days of receiving a warning letter. The new system also gives city-parish workers the right to clean up an uncooperative property owner’s parcel and add the costs to the owner’s annual tax bill.


Almost a quarter of the population within Baton Rouge city limits live in poverty, according to 2007 census data. While $167 may sound steep for an automatically-generated ticket processed by a greedy, private company which received a large cash infusion from taxpayer-bailed-out Goldman Sachs, we hear that ATS might still be giving away some backpacks.


How generous. Perhaps they can be boiled and eaten.
