Only 20% of Photo Tickets Are Paid

According to this article on KVOA.com, the number of people paying their photo tickets in Tucson has gone from 80% to 20%. It seems that people are wising up to this scam.

How effective can a “safety” (or revenue, for that matter) program be if only 1 in 5 pay their tickets? These systems prey on the gullible and unprepared. Those who forget to turn their head of hide their face as they drive by, and those stupid enough to send in payment when they get a meaningless “notice of violation.” As long as this remains profitable for Redflex though, the scam will continue. With any luck, maybe next year we’ll have this down to 5-10%.
