Camera Fraud Article: DPS scameras still hiding in the shadows
One of our CameraFraud volunteers recently captured the below photo showing 2 DPS scamera vans hiding on a freeway, lurking in the shadows underneath an overpass.
This just goes to show that Arizona DPS continues to ignore recommendations issued by ASU Professor Simon Washington Ph. D. (and others), which state in part:
“the placement of cameras in close proximity to high information load locations (e.g., on- and off-ramps, underpasses, billboards, weaving sections, directional signs, etc.) should be avoided.”
“Placement of cameras in sight-restricted locations should be avoided.”
Of course, if it’s not about safety and all about the money, why would they listen to some silly
suggestions comprehensive analysis from an ASU professor and colleagues?
Perhaps DPS is trying to rake in as much revenue as possible before they are forced to abandon the scamera game.
