Default Legislative Update – Get Involved! Week of Feb 8

Camera Fraud Article: Legislative Update – Get Involved! Week of Feb 8




The legislative session is in full swing, and our representatives are busy debating bills related to photo enforcement. It’s important and easy that you get involved to let your representatives know how you feel! This is a summary of what’s going on in committee for the rest of this week. There are three things you can do:


1. Contact your senators and representatives and let them know how you feel about each of these bills.

2. Show up at a committee hearing, request to speak, and tell them how you feel.

3. If you can’t make it, register on the Request to Speak system, login, and log your support or opposition.


Feb 10, SHR3, 9:00am, Senate Public Safety and Human Services Committee

SB1443

Summary:



  • Expands photo enforcement to include identifying violations related to a) certificates of title and registration and b) vehicle insurance and financial responsibility.

  • Photo enforcement system cannot be placed within 600 feet of a posted speed limit change except for school crossings.

  • A speed limit sign must be placed between the two photo enforcement warning signs.

  • Violations must be for at least 11+mph over limit, except school and construction zones.

  • If a person responds to a notice or citation within 30 days, points will not be assessed to the person’s license.

  • Requires an annual report on the state photo enforcement program

  • Local authorities shall spend at least 35% of all net photo enforcement money on law enforcement purposes.

  • Photo violations must be filed within 120 days of the alleged violation (currently 60).

  • NOV’s may be issued before a complaint is filed in court

  • NOV’s and complaints are not required to be mailed to the person charged with the violation

  • The penalty is to be $165 not subject to any surcharge , but the board of supervisors may establish a processing fee.

  • 35% of all money received shall go to the police safety equipment fund.

  • Stipulates that this section does not restrict MVD from refusing to renew a vehicle’s registration if the owner is delinquent in paying a fine for a traffic violation or fails to appear in a criminal traffic case.


CF Stance: AGAINST

Note: While there are a few desirable measures, there are some very BAD measures included here.


SCR1052

This is a proposed ballot initiative. If this passes, it will be on the ballot for voters this fall.

Summary:



  • Repeals the state photo enforcement system.

  • Prohibits photo enforcement systems from being used on state highways to detect violators of speed restrictions.

  • Makes conforming changes.

  • Requires the Secretary of State to submit the proposition to the voters at the next general election.

  • Becomes effective if approved by the voters and on proclamation of the Governor.


CF Stance: FOR

Note: The CameraFraud ballot initiative is different in that it eliminates ALL photo enforcement programs in Arizona, not just the state (DPS) program.


SCR1059

This is a proposed ballot initiative. If this passes, it will be on the ballot for voters this fall.

Summary:

This is a ballot initiative version of SB1443
