Default Breaking: Cameras Rejected Nationwide

Camera Fraud Article: Breaking: Cameras Rejected Nationwide

Photo Radar / Photo Enforcement has never survived a public vote in the United States


Breaking News:  Automated ticketing schemes– including red light cameras– appear to have been defeated by public vote in two communities in Ohio as well as one in Texas.


Beleaguered Redflex Group of Australia appears to have failed in their attempts to keep their invasive surveillance and ticketing products on the roadways in Heath / Chillicothe Ohio, while American Traffic Solutions faces termination in College Station, Texas.


UPDATE: ATS paid community outsiders to hold pro-cam signs and call police on actual voters:


ats


News 3 asked a consultant from “Keep College Station Safe” and ATS, if the two men were paid. The consultant, also from


Houston, told News 3 at least 12 people were “under contract.”


 



UPDATE 2: From TheNewspaper.com:


In addition to kicking two camera supporters from the city council, 72 percent of those voting in Chillicothe, Ohio approved a total prohibition on the use of red light cameras and speed cameras. In College Station, Texas the vote was much closer, but at the end of the night 52 percent wanted the red light cameras to come down. In Heath, Ohio 51 percent voted against the cameras. A total of nine cities nationwide have used the initiative process to ban camera enforcement since 1991, with camera proponents never having won a public vote.


UPDATE 3: “HEATH CAMERAS KNOCKED DOWN:”


Heath residents have decided they want a new mayor — and they don’t want photo enforcement cameras along major roads. Mark Johns was elected to take the reins of the city even as voters shut down the short-lived revenue stream generated by the cameras.


UPDATE 4: “Voters say “yes” to ban red-light, speed cameras; no to some incumbents:”


Chillicothe voters spoke overwhelming for change in city government Tuesday. Four incumbents and the city’s red light and speed cameras were ousted in unofficial vote totals posted Tuesday. Councilmembers Cindy Henderson, R-At Large, and Bill Bonner, D-5th Ward, along with Council President Bob Shoultz and City Auditor Bill Morrissey all lost re-election after opposition to red-light cameras brought high turnout at the polls…


..Shoultz, a Republican, lost his Council President seat to downtown businessman Bruce Arnold, who has been outspoken against the cameras and even filed a lawsuit against the city alleging they were unlawful.
