Default Avondale Police Chief: No Correlation Between Cameras and Accident Reduction, Program

Camera Fraud Article: Avondale Police Chief: No Correlation Between Cameras and Accident Reduction, Program Canceled




The Arizona Republic reported today 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.


The city council cited budget concerns in canceling the program, as the alleged safety benefits are apparently too expensive.


More revealing was the police chief’s comments:


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.

“Looking at the stats, there’s no significant correlation between the number of accidents and the impact photo enforcement has been having on those wrecks,” he said. “It’s down all over the city. It’s down all over the state.


The program cancellation marks another contract loss for ATS.


In other news, 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.
