The Phoenix New Times has two excellent articles and lengthy stories on photo radars, speed cameras and Arizona law. The articles are titled “Arizona Photo Enforcement Ticket: How to Beat It and Keep Your Conscience Clear and “Gotcha!.”
People ask us all the time: What can I do about that nasty photo radar ticket I got in the mail? The answer: Nothing. Literally. Chuck it in the trash. It’s perfectly ethical — just look at the ticket’s fine print. You see, for photo enforcement citations to be valid, the state Supreme Court rules say it has to be properly served to you. And the U.S. Mail won’t cut it. So, the ticket asks you to sign a waiver of your right to proper service and mail it back to the authorities.
