Now we know why Phoenix City Council would not give CameraFRAUD volunteers or even local media a straight answer about the proposedaddition to red light cameras.
While a few city council members like Thelda Williams, Bill Gates and Michael Nowakowski told our members that they were in favor of the scameras and wanted the city to add more, most were silent on the issue.
A media conglomerate owned newspaper in Phoenix which supports both American Traffic Solutions and Redflex has mentioned that Phoenix scrapped that plan due the “economic climate.”
Translation: We know you’re pissed and you’re not going to pay Redflex any more of your money.
Undoubtedly, Redflex, City Manager David Cavazos and Kerry Wilcoxon of the Phoenix DOT were trying to slip this one by the people of Phoenix, hoping they weren’t paying attention. Nice try criminals. We’re watching you too closely for that to ever happen in our own backyard.
Phoenix still has dangerous red light cameras, controlled by Redflex, dotting several of its intersections. Phoenix also has a mayoral race heating up and the only candidate to come out against the photo ticketing scam isLibertarian Thane Eichenauer.
In the coming weeks, our volunteers will be asking each candidate if they will pledge to kick Redflex and their spy cameras out of our streets and intersections. Chances are that outside of Thane, none of them will, which should tell Phoenicians all they need to know about this field of the status quo. Nobody expects politicians to ever tell the truth about or get rid of scameras until the money dries up and their jobs are on the line.
This field seems to be exceptionally in love with Redflex, so we’ll make sure they go on the record. There are no compromises allowed on this issue, but it looks like Phoenix won’t get the help of their next mayor to bring them down. No surprises there.
