Get ready for Photo radar on the US 60

I don't know about you, but I started to avoid Scottsdale's section of the 101 when they put the traffic cams in. Not because I love speeding, but because I don't think its fair to be busted going along with the normal flow of traffic. Well, it looks like nowhere is safe anymore. The US 60's traffic cameras will be activated by the end of the week.

So, look out for getting caught speeding on the 60 at Alma School, Mesa Drive and Gilbert Road. Also look out for people hitting the brakes and causing accidents in an attempt to not get cited. Remember that the limit is 10 miles and over. So, if you are going 75, you are going to get ticketed.

Don't worry, its only a $181 ticket to help the state budget. It doesn't go on your permanent record. But that's certainly not just a cash grab or anything. I have heard a few people call them "Janet Cams," which I think may end up being the Governor's legacy if she skips town to join Obama if he wins.

I noted the same thing-- peopel hitting their brakes on I-17 south-- I've driven there for years-- and it's now insane--

I've started a thread in my forum where I invite phoenix drivers against photoradar-- I beleive we should push back on this because it's truly nuts...

and the 101-- is liekly worse-- imagine being behind someone going 75 and he hits his brakes for no reason. sheesh....

there's a dirty rotton money conpsirayc behidn this I'm looking into,... the whole is corrupt...

[+] Join me here-- we should formalize a protest movement-- that's easy for people to do-- we have to reinvent democracy I guess.
