They are always watching you and capturing those who break the law.
“The photo radar program is unconstitutional, it is unsafe in many instances and it is rife with fraud," said Arizona Rep. Travis Grantham (R-Dist. 12)
This is Grantham's second year proposing the Ban Photo Radar Bill.
“It’s starting to cause a lot of problems not just in Arizona but all over the country by privatizing law enforcement and the actions of law enforcement," said Rep. Grantham.
Advocates of photo radar, more specifically the Red Means Stop Traffic Safety Alliance, believe it’s helping.
“They augment our law enforcement and the technology helps save lives. It’s been proven over and over again," said Maria Wojtczak, DrivingMBA owner and Red Means Stop Traffic Safety Alliance board member.
One major argument is that photo radar cameras are unconstitutional.
“It does not afford the individual the right to due process. It also doesn't allow you to face your accuser," said Rep. Grantham.
“Several courts have looked at it and declare that it is constitutional," said Wojtczak.
Beyond the constitutionality of it, Grantham sees more problems with the system.
“We’ve seen an increase in accidents at some intersections, problems with the equipment, shortening of yellow light times and massive fraud," he said.
A study commissioned by the City of Scottsdale shows crashes are down 23 percent at red light camera intersections and speed-related crashes are down 65 percent.
Those findings didn't benefit the recent photo radar bill proposal that just passed with a 6-3 party-line vote before a House committee panel.
“Our next stop will be the floor of the House of Representatives where it’s a 60-person vote but we only need a majority to get out," said Rep. Grantham.
