Default The Cameras Are Coming Down in Mesa

Camera Fraud Article: The Cameras Are Coming Down in Mesa

News last week out of Mesa via WarOnDriving.com


Another Arizona city is taking down their unpopular automated ticketing camera system.


This time itís the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, which has a population of more than 400,000 residents.†American Traffic Solutions†has been issuing scamera tickets in Mesa intersections and via mobile devices since 2006. Their driver-distracting cameras and illegally parked radar vans are no longer welcome in the city after the†Public Safety Committee†voted to not renew the contract.


In 2011, a similar LAPD panel in Los Angeles†voted to kick American Traffic Solutions out†of that city as well. The main reasons given by the panel were that accidents had increased and most people who were sent the wallet-busting $500 citations by ATS simply ignored them.


Itís no surprise that Mesa would follow suit, given the public outcry about confusing intersection lines and the loss of due process. On the panelís recommendation, the cameras will be torn out in 2014.


Mesa can look forward to their intersections being free from a private company with a profit motive spying on every motorist passing through.


Last summer residents spoke out on local news about the chaotic situation and uneven law enforcement for drivers:


No words from the ATS sockpuppets yet about their ouster. But itís easy to assume their legal team and internet shills are going to †play their typical games with the media.
