Default Top 10 CameraFRAUD Stories from 2010 – Part II

Camera Fraud Article: Top 10 CameraFRAUD Stories from 2010 – Part II

5. Redflex CEO forced to admit that company falsified FCC documents for 11 years


In what amounted to a nuisance lawsuit by American Traffic Solutions (ATS) against Redflex, it was hard to gauge which side was more damaged by the proceedings.


A federal Judge said about ATS’s performance in court, “”At best the plaintiff has an extraordinarily weak case… it is weak at every point.”


Conversely, Redflex’s CEO Karen Finley was forced to admit under oath that it falsified FCC documents saying that their mobile radar equipment was exempt from certification and used those false documents for 11 years. That admission amounts to millions of photo tickets that are now in question.

4. Redflex Traffic Systems spent 2010 circling the drain


It wasn’t easy being a member of this Aussie operation. Let’s review their lowlights:


*Attacked repeatedly by Australian and US media


*Sued by rival ATS


*Lost millions on Arizona contract failure


*Profits dropped by 92%


It’s no wonder employee morale is reported to be at an all time low and the company is for sale. Will 2011 be the end of Redflex?

3. Tempe Scamera Lawsuits


In October, a massive RICO lawsuit was brought against the City of Tempe, Redflex and many politicians and law enforcement officials. If successful, the suit filed by Daniel Gutenkauf could bring down the entire photo ticketing fraud ring in Arizona.


Less than two months later, Redflex Traffic Systems, in a desperate move served its own customer, the City of Tempe with a separate lawsuit. They are seeking what the scamera vendor alleges are lost profits from defensive driving school fees charged to motorists who opt out of paying their photo tickets.


There certainly is no honor among thieves.

2. Every Camera Ban Initiative Wins on Election Day


A lot of cameras came down in 2010 thanks to citizens initiatives


American Traffic Solutions really felt the wrath of the voters on election day in 2010. Their cameras were ousted by citizens initiatives in:


Garfield Hts, OH (Cleveland suburb)


Mukilteo, WA (Seattle suburb)


Anaheim, CA


Baytown, TX and Houston, TX


Congrats go out to all our friends in the fight against scameras from across the US who pushed back on Big Brother and abusive government. November 2nd, 2010 was a day to remember.

1. Arizona Freeway Scamera System comes to an end


Under immense pressure from the Arizona Citizens Against Photo Radar initiative to ban all forms of photo ticketing in the state, the Redflex contract with AZ DPS was not renewed.


The ban photo radar petition in Arizona was the #1 non-paid citizens initiative in the entire US for 2010. Because the will of the people was spoken so loudly and clearly, a victory against the menacing freeway cameras was won. Thanks to all the hard work of signature gatherers and the volunteers who made this effort possible. We didn’t get everything we wanted, but the message was heard by your elected officials at the state capitol.


Of course the ultimate goal is to ban all forms of photo ticketing in Arizona. That goal moves forward in 2011!


A sincere thank you to everyone who supports our cause. We simply couldn’t do it without you.


The CameraFRAUD Family
