Arizona Gov. Napolitano and her supportors of Big Brother tactics, driven by greed, are charging full-speed ahead with saturating the greater Phoenix metro area with an additional 60 fixed and 40 mobile speed cameras by year's end (that's in addition
to the already saturated red light camera implementation).
It appears that the Arizona State Supreme court may be being influenced by money (approximately $4 million), for what I am sure is going to be a series of court-challenges. Isn't this tactic called front-loading?
Of course the official line from both the corporate hacks at RedFlex, their for-hire lobbyists, and the administration claim its all in the name of enhancing safety, not revenue (yeah right).

Expect an additional 100 cameras to come online sometime later.
