Pima County Board of Supervisors “Justification” For Photo Radar

January 6, 2009

 

Pima County’s Board of Supervisors will be attempting to award a Photo Radar contract during their meeting on January 6, 2009.

 

Below is the summary, “Justification”.

 

If the argument for placing these cameras is “safety”, where is it listed? All I see is “estimated annual revenue amount of $1,500,000.00 for Photo Traffic Enforcement Program”

There is nothing in the background information about “Goals” to save live, or any estimated reduction in traffic accidents. Nope, just an estimated annual revenue amount of $1,500,000.00.

 

So I assume the “Justification” is….$1,500,000.00…not safety…

Get real Pima County..

Gov. Napolitano Estimates 90 MILLION Dollars in Photo Radar Revenues

December 20, 2008

 

If there is any doubt where Gov. Janet Napolitano stands on Photo Radar and why she’s deploying Speed Radar across the state, stop wondering.  It’s clear to me that Gov. Janet Napolitano sees “free” money and an easy way to collect it.

 

According to Gov. Napolitano; she has estimated revenues of 90 MILLION Dollars in just the 1st year! Will it stop there? I don’t think so…If history is any indicator, this is only the beginning.  Government has traditionally abused the people’s trust. It’s just a matter of time and the dependencies of “Photo Radar” revenues will be used for subsidizing Arizona’s budget…..forever!

 

Clearly Government has an improper motive with respect to Photo Radar. Laws are created to enforce not as a Tax revenue stream.
