Scottsdale officials say they intend to resume the municipality’s photo enforcement program Friday, May 13 after American Traffic Solutions, the city’s vendor, received its Private Investigation Business License to comply with a new Arizona attorney general’s legal opinion.
The city’s photo enforcement program was suspended while ATS completed that process. Drivers may have noticed camera flashes during the system’s restoration and testing, but citations will not be processed or issued prior to compliance.
The city of Scottsdale has used photo enforcement technology since 1996 to help reduce red-light running and speeding. The system has 18-fixed cameras at intersections and along city streets, two mobile speed-enforcement vans and two portable towers that are used exclusively in school zones.
