    Taxpayer money will be used to replace the damaged equipment, who are the property damaging criminals really hurting?

    Think first, act second.

    I heard of a guy that got a ticket and picture of his car in his mail. He took a picture of money for the amount of the fine and sent it in for payment. The sheriff was not to happy about that. I don't understand how they can get you for just a picture even if you can prove someone else was driving your car. I can understand if would help tame people's driving habits but it does not seem effective.

    Some people just don't like tyranny and oppression.

    Too many bad laws on the books that never get repealed. Sometimes, things have to be taken care of.

    Some frogs realize they are being slowly boiled and decide to jump out. Props to them.

    Cameras in the U.S. are privately owned.

    Excellent, thanks for sharing. Very, very few things infuriate me more than speed cameras.

    Don't come to Prescott Valley; they are everywhere...

    We have the little mobile camera Ford Escapes that park along the roads... They purposely place them on downhill sections or hide them... And they still use the argument that they aren't for revenue, just speed reduction/public safety...:upeyes:

    I have been very tempted to go visit one in the middle of the night with a hi-lift jack and tip it on it's side...:whistling:

    Hard to imagine speed cameras in Prescott Valley (I used to live there in the 90s), but I believe it, they are going up all over AZ. I've had just about enough, and I know I'm not alone.

    We don't have them out here (thankfully), but are you allowed to subpoena the camera and its service records as you are with speed radar/laser? Tuning forks used to get the Fifes around here all the time. HH

    Do we get any tax break if the cameras stay intact?

    When I read one of the links, it said that a traffic cam was
    totally destroyed. The destruction (according to the article)
    of the cam caused the destruction of an Audi & Damler-
    Chrisler?

    All these cams do is take pics. They don't prevent accidents!

    Another WTF journalistic presumption. :upeyes:

    This^^^; additionally, traffic cameras are all about REVENUE and have nothing to do with safety.

    The private companies get theirs opff the top, then send some scraps to the municipal entity they are DOING BUSINESS IN as payoff for allowing the cameras in the first place. It is a new take on an old mafia scheme.

    I disagree with you. If the cameras start to cost more than they bring in, they won't keep replacing them. I have to support the criminals here.

    And if you pointed out the irony of this, in a state that supports freedom in many other ways, they probably wouldn't get it. Like how the only state with no motorcycle helmet law for anybody is Illinois - they don't see the irony.
