Default Freeways Fine after DPS Scameras Shut Off

Camera Fraud Article: Freeways Fine after DPS Scameras Shut Off

The freeway camera system was shutoff in July, and Redflex official spokeswoman Shoba Vaitheeswaran was quoted saying, “This should be a wake-up call to everyone in the community to be even more careful and watch for a large increase in aggressive, dangerous driving,” implying that the Arizona freeways would never be safe again without cameras snapping photos of drivers. Shoba was undoubtedly hoping that drivers had forgotten that the freeways were just fine before the states’ failed money-making scam began.


Now two months after the camera shutoff, KTAR is reporting that there has been NO CHANGE in driving habits according to the director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, Alberto Gutier. “I haven’t seen any changes in behavior, I don’t see people sort of flying down the highways, although I’m sure it exists some places.”


News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s traffic reporter, “Detour Dan” Beach, believes drivers are taking advantage of the speed cameras disappearance. But even so, it does not appear to have made the roads any more dangerous, as Beach says that he has not seen an increase in crashes.
