Photo Enforcement Program Adding Cameras Beginning July 1

June 07 , 2007 by Editor

Drivers on Shea Boulevard, north Pima Road and McDowell Road will see new photo enforcement cameras being installed in the next several weeks as Scottsdale makes changes to the program.

The City Council last month selected a new operator, American Traffic Solutions, for the city's street photo enforcement program. ATS begins operations on July 1 with cameras in three new locations. Six current locations will remain unchanged.

Scottsdale also is working with the Arizona Department of Public Safety on a transition plan for cameras on the Loop 101 Freeway. The changes approved by the Council last month apply only to city streets.

The new Scottsdale street locations are:

** Northbound and southbound Pima Road between Los Gatos and Thompson Peak Parkway. These cameras, at a mid-block location between intersections, will monitor for speed only.

** Eastbound and westbound Shea Blvd. between 120th and 124th streets, also a mid-block, speed-only camera.

** Eastbound McDowell Road at Scottsdale Road. This intersection camera will monitor both speed and red-light running.

The six fixed camera locations that will continue are all intersection cameras that monitor speed and red-light running. They are:

** Northbound Scottsdale Road at Thomas Road
** Northbound Scottsdale Road at Cactus Road
** Southbound Hayden Road at Indian School Road
** Northbound Scottsdale Road at Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard
** Southbound Scottsdale road at Shea Boulevard
** Eastbound Shea Boulevard at 90th Street

Redflex Traffic Systems, the current operator, will continue to run these systems for varying periods ranging from 6 to 27 days after July 1 to allow a staging period for Redflex to remove its equipment and ATS to install its equipment.
