Speed Cameras Redux

Well, it looks like they are finally just about ready to turn on the speed cameras on the US 60. There still does not appear to be any cameras at all on the 202 Red Mountain or on the San Tan, so at least there appears to be a way around it for the time being. However, one would assume that it won't last long.

What is most interesting to me, however, is the fact, that only about 1/3 of the time that the camera goes off are they able to capture and ticket the culprit. I have a few different acquaintances who have been flashed, and very few of them have received their tickets so far. The biggest concern I have heard from people so far is the brightness of the flash at night. Even when the camera flashes in the opposite direction, it is apparently very startling.
