There are some people headed to Hollbrook through Kingman this weekend.? Just wanted to give them a heads up on unfair ticketing going on.? Somebody else posted the Curry contact which complained about unfair traffic violation citations.? It is pretty bad when some cops are too lazy hand out tickets in person and depend on cameras to do the job.? I have seen mobile camera trucks with 20 foot booms in Arizona waiting around blind corners on the freeway just to ruin somebody's day who may be going a few miles over the limit!? It is pretty bad when you can retrace your road trip 3 months later just by accessing the data on traffic cams.
What ever happened to chasing speeders down and giving them a ticket face to face so you can al least see who your accuser is and argue with them if they are wrong?
To me, all this data collecting (spying) on every single person in the United States and those in other countries reflects poorly on those currently in office who are abusing this new-found power. They need to be ousted!? What ever happened to warrants and probable cause?? Our freedom of privacy is at stake!
What next, a toilet cam with a weight monitor under the seat, a DNA sampler and a butt recognition system?

> There are thousands of cameras in place in Arizona, some of which will still issue thousands of tickets per camera per year.? They are called traffic cams and they will still capture your every move and store this data for an undetermined period of time.? The cameras have OCR meaning they can read your license plate numbers.? This gives them the ability to retrace your every move if needed in court.

>> It is interesting that our friend is speaking of traffic stops.? Luckily for us, ED or Electronic D.N.A. is on the job 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Here are some images of my wife I with a Nevada State Patrol in hot pursuit.? She had the ticket printed before we were even stopped as witnessed on camera.? In Arizona, they will just send you a ticket in the mail if one of the thousands of cameras tracks you speeding.
