Default Chandler Photo Enforcement Error Rate 52%

Camera Fraud Article: Chandler Photo Enforcement Error Rate 52%



According to the East Valley Tribune, Chandler’s red light cameras result in enforceable tickets only 48% of the time. For fiscal year 2008-2009, the cameras flashed 29,000 times; however, 8000 of those tickets failed to capture critical information according to Detective Dave Ramer. Of the remaining tickets,á7000 (24%)áwere of commercial vehicles belonging to companies that refused to divulge the identity of the driver.áAccording to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, an average of 28% of drivers are NOT the registered owner the car, which further adds to the difficulty of issuing tickets. Then we know that of the 48% of “successful” tickets, only a fraction ever get paid.


The Chandler City Council is now contemplating an expansion of the system. But would the Chandler City Council have voted for the cameras had the sales pitch to Chandler been more honest to begin with?


Redflex: “We have this system that photographs drivers who run red lights… except we can only targetáa fraction of the people driving by, and it only works 48% of the time.á But did I mention we, (*cough*) I mean you can stillámake lots of money?”


The article goes on to imply that Chandler is disappointed that it couldn’t cash in on all of those missed opportunities, and had to settle for a paltry $300,000 while sending millions of dollars (drained from the local economy) to Redflex.


If the same statistics hold true for freeway traffic, 1 in 4 cars passing by a freeway camera are immune fromáphoto tickets because of commercial plate registration. Again we ask, how is this constitutional? As a reminder,á


Arizona constitution, Article 2, Section 13 states:


No law shall be enacted granting to any citizen, class of citizens, or corporation other than municipal, privileges or immunities which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens or corporations.


It would seem to us that over 25% of the drivers on the road have inherent “immunities which, upon the same terms,á(do) not equally belong to all citizens.” Compare this to human officers who can pull anyone over at any time for any reason.


Call To Action: The Chandler City Council is voting on whether to expand the red light contract on Thursday, Mar 11. Click here to find out how you can help influence their decision.
