Default Follow-Up: Accident Caused by Photo Radar

Camera Fraud Article: Follow-Up: Accident Caused by Photo Radar

It’s official, we have our first officially documented accident caused by photo radar. In a follow-up to an article a few weeks ago, we obtained the accident report for the accident in the photos.

Of course, the officer didn’t explicitly say why the car was slowing down when he saw the photo enforcement zone sign, but we all know why.

The report says:

“According to the driver of Unit 1, she was trying to merge to the #2 lane from the #3 lane. When she looked away she did not see unit 2 slowing down. Thus unit 1 struck unit 2 from behind.”

Accident occurs in Photo Extortion Zone

Red coupe had rear ended another vehicle

Looks like it is hard to make the case that any officers were “freed up” by the cameras. Instead, the cameras appear to be causing an additional workload.

Another thought… why does it take 2 DPS units to respond to a non-injury accident? It seems if DPS wants to talk about how understaffed they are and how the cameras help them, how about only having 1 unit respond to minor accidents?
