Avondale Police Chief: No Correlation Between Cameras and Accident Reduction, Program
 
<b>Camera Fraud Article: Avondale Police Chief: No Correlation Between Cameras and Accident Reduction, Program Canceled</b><br/><br/><br /><p><a href="http://camerafraud.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/47649048-azleomaricopacountyavondalemillennuimpolice.jpg">< img class="alignright size-full wp-image-3373" title="47649048.AZLEOMaricopaCountyAvondaleMillenn uimPolice" src="http://camerafraud.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/47649048-azleomaricopacountyavondalemillennuimpolice.jpg?w= 160&h=121" alt="" width="160" height="121" /></a><br />
The <a href="http://www.azcentral.com/community/swvalley/articles/2010/02/10/20100210swv-avonbudget0210-ON.html" target="_blank">Arizona Republic reported today</a> that Avondale is canceling its photo enforcement program. A year ago Avondale voted to expand the photo enforcement program. The project was to be completed in March, but it never got off the ground.</p>
<p>The city council cited budget concerns in canceling the program, as the alleged safety benefits are apparently too expensive.</p>
<p>More revealing was the police chief’s comments:</p>
<blockquote><p>Police Chief Kevin Kotsur said there has been a drop in traffic accidents, but he believes the bad economy means fewer people driving. And the costs of the program are rising every year.<br />
“Looking at the stats, <strong>there’s no significant correlation</strong> between the number of accidents and the impact photo enforcement has been having on those wrecks,” he said. <strong>“It’s down all over the city. It’s down all over the state.</strong>“</p></blockquote>
<p>The program cancellation marks another contract loss for ATS.</p>
<p><a href="http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/30/3046.asp">In other news</a>, a federal judge scolded Redflex and ATS for their child-like behavior in their lawsuit over lying in bid proposals. This is of course, nothing new or surprising for those of us familiar with how these companies conduct their business.</p>
