Traffic Cameras ticketing you? We have information and camera locations!
Drivers are taking new routes to avoid the traffic-cameras. Travelling 5mph over the speed limit is costing motorists frequently. Speeding tickets are issued between $75.00 and $140.00.

These tickets may keep tourists from returning! For example, Betsy Owens spoke highly of her New Orleans vacation until she got her mail delivery, she explains, " I received a $75 ticket from your "Photo Safety Program." A traffic camera had recorded my car -- brace yourself -- going a death-defying 33 mph in a 25 mph zone. According to the instructions in the citation, I am to mail my check to "ViolationInfo.com," a private company located in Tempe, Ariz., that presumably gets a cut of the action."
Furthermore, peoples identities have been stolen from "traffic cop" phone calls asking them to pay their fraudulent fines. Scare tactics of warrants for an arrest or a jail sentence convince these people to give their credit card number, SS#, billing address, et al..
