Default DPS Reduces Redflex Photo Radar Vans

Camera Fraud Article: DPS Reduces Redflex Photo Radar Vans


notetoredflex2DPS appears to have all but pulled the plug on its usage of Redflex mobile photo radar units on state highways, CameraFRAUD has learned.


Deployment of the mobile photo radar vans was already on a noticeably gradual decline over the past few months, when the “talivans” seemingly disappeared altogether from roadways around the beginning of September.


CameraFRAUD volunteers noted not seeing any of the wretched vehicles — owned and operated by beleaguered Redflex Group — until Saturday (9/5)… when only two were spotted valley wide.


Trapster.com, a website which tracks the locations of speed traps based on driver feedback, also listed only three DPS mobile freeway units deployed for the entire state as of Sunday, and again only two of which were located on valley freeways.


We sent an inquiry to DPS on September 3 regarding the reduction of the revenue-enhancing traps, and received the following reply:


I have forwarded your questions to a Sergeant within the Photo Enforcement Unit at DPS.


Officer Klavitter,

DPS Duty Office


As of the time of publication, no additional response was received from anyone at DPS.


DPS and Redflex claim to have 42 mobile units in total. Former Gov. Janet Napolitano ordered the entire fleet of photo radar vans to be deployed from state border to border around a holiday this time last year.
