Default ATS Accused of Destroying Records in Florida

Camera Fraud Article: ATS Accused of Destroying Records in Florida


American Traffic Solutions or Above The Statutes, Inc?

American Traffic Solutions or Above The Statutes, Inc?


American Traffic Solutions, the besieged automated ticketing vendor, is in trouble with the law again in Florida.


Already facing a class-action lawsuit regarding constitutional issues in the Sunshine State, the news now is ATS has violated state law by destroying records:


The Florida Attorney General’s Office says video footage is a public record even if it is collected by a private company, like Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions, if the company is contracted by a government agency.


And officials with the Florida Division of Library and Information Services say companies like that have to comply with the state’s record-retention schedule, which requires that the videos be kept for at least 30 days.


So, how does ATS handle challenges to its ticketing scheme? Blame the client: the city!


ATS and city officials Thursday pointed to each other as the party responsible for maintaining the videos.


But City Attorney Tim McCausland said ATS is the custodian of the records and that the company is responsible for being versed in Florida public records law, which the company agreed to abide by in its contract with the city.


Be warned council members, city managers, mayors, and project administrators: Theft through automated ticketing will always come back to haunt you, and the vendor will be laughing all the way to the bank.


(And re-election is never that far off…)
