Arizona Representative Aims to Change Photo Radar Requirements

Imagine getting a photo radar ticket for something you didn’t do. Arizona Rep. Bob Thorpe of Flagstaff is proposing a bill (HB 2366) that would do just that. With this new bill, it would end the requirement for photo radar tickets to have a picture of the vehicle’s driver. The only thing the government would need is a picture of the license plate. On its face, the bill’s main purpose is to put photo radar cameras on school buses. With a camera attached to a bus, Arizona law enforcement hopes it will be be able to catch drivers who don’t […]

The True Cost of a Speeding Ticket

Have you ever received a speeding ticket? Did you wonder where the money went after you paid the ticket? Most likely you and many others in Arizona contributed tens of millions to government programs through unnecessary citation costs. Instead of local and state taxes contributing to government programs, Arizona legislation has shifted the burden to those who have committed a crime.

When you pay the state $95 for a speeding ticket, you’ll also be required to pay for programs and […]

Radar That Can Detect Texting and Driving? Corso Law Group Weighs in on Questionable Photo Radar Device

Virginia-based company ComSonic is developing a radar gun that can detect when someone is texting and driving.

Texting while driving increases the risk of a crash by 23 […]

Controversial Arizona Photo Radar Cameras Back in the News

A new bill concerning the use of photo radar in Arizona has been introduced by state representatives. HB 2690 says that all authorities and agencies in Arizona using photo enforcement have to calibrate the camera systems at least once every 24 hours.
