Ticket Cameras May Be Used To Enforce Text Messaging Laws
 
<b>NMA Article: Ticket Cameras May Be Used To Enforce Text Messaging Laws</b><br/><br/><p><img style="border-top-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 8px; border-right-width: 0px" src="http://www.motorists.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/TicketCamerasMayBeUsedToEnforceTextMessa_AD98/cellphone.jpg" border="0" alt="cellphone" width="529" height="204" /><br />
The city of Scottsdale, Arizona is considering using its ticket cameras to enforce distracted driving laws. Yes, the same cameras that are <a href="http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/oct/01/60-percent-of-red-light-camera-tickets-tossed/"><strong>frequently unable to identify the drivers of vehicles</strong></a> may be used to check for text messaging behind the wheel.</p>
<p>From the <a href="http://www.eastvalleytribune.com/story/126772"><strong>East Valley Tribune</strong></a>:</p>
<blockquote><p><em>Photo enforcement cameras in Scottsdale are capable of detecting behavior such as text messaging or other “distracted driving” behavior, in addition to capturing speeders and red-light runners.</em></p>
<p><em>But whether Scottsdale pursues such enforcement as part of a proposed text-messaging and distracted driving law remains to be seen.</em></p>
<p><em>“We’re able to see people clearly on their cell phones,” said Josh Weiss, spokesman for American Traffic Solutions, the company that operates the fixed cameras and camera-equipped vans on Scottsdale surface streets.</em></p></blockquote>
<p>And here’s a fun sentence:</p>
<blockquote><p><em>Weiss is also <strong>a member of Scottsdale’s Transportation Commission</strong>, which recently voted to recommend that the City Council adopt a ban on text messaging while driving.</em></p></blockquote>
<p>So a spokesperson for a ticket camera manufacturer is on <a href="http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/boards/Trans.asp"><strong>the city’s Transportation Commission</strong></a> and no one bats an eye? Amazing.</p>
