Redflex Traffic Systems / Scammed!

RedFlex is pulling the same crap in Louisiana right now. Gary and I have many things in common when it comes to this company. My 16 year old also got a Threat Letter/Bill of Attainder in the mail...however, it was addressed to me and told me that I had to pay up. We received the Bill of Attainder the day I filed an official complaint with the Louisiana State Board of Private Investigators for the surveillance activities of the speed vans. I was trained and licensed as a private investigator and under Louisiana law, you must have a license to perform what they are doing.

The day before the Board was to meet, RedFlex and their deep pocket attorneys filed a Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. It seems as though the judge had no idea what was going on and granted the TRO. Right after that, the attorney for the Board resigned. The Attorney General's office took over on behalf of the Board and filed a Motion for Summary Judgment, pointing out RedFlex's twisting of the law and misrepresentations to the Court.

That hearing is scheduled for February 11th. The traffic cams are turned on now. I received another notice in the mail Christmas Eve extorting me and threatening that if I do not send the money immediately, RedFlex will either sue me, disable my car or report me to a collection agency.

RedFlex is not a Court (but could be considered a kangaroo court). As a citizen, I am accountable to City, State and Federal Court... not a RedFlex Court. RedFlex has come into our state and refused to adhear to state and federal law, not to mention the Constitution of Louisiana and the United States... i.e., shining bright lights in the face of drivers, illegally accessing our DMV information, using recording equipment to send out citations through the mail (police officers are strictly prohibited from doing this)... P.I. Law, denial of due process, right to face my accuser, vicarious liability, Uniform Traffic and Safety Laws, etc., etc., the list goes on and on. Our legislature said No to this program 5 times but our Mayor was suckered and fell for it.

Also, RedFlex is a foreign company who is not on the Safe Harbor list. They are under no regulations and have taken the stance they are accountable to no one. Our laws do not apply to them.

This company is using the United States Postal System to conduct their scam and what is really bothersome is that since they are not accountable to anyone... we have no way to ensure there is no unethical use of the private information of our citizens, including DMV records, credit records... not to mention should should someone send in their check for payment, now this information is vulnerable. They are transferring information via the web to Scottsdale... and since they are based out of Australia, information is probably going there as well. Also, what RedFlex has done is convinced the City Council to take the crime of speeding and turn it into a civil matter (which violates the Louisiana Constitution). However, they have also chosen Not to follow the Code of Civil Procedure... creating their own rules, artificial police force and mock court.

Other cities in Louisiana have been approached and their legal counsel has come out against it stating all of the law violations. This has to be stopped immediately!

This company seriously is violating our civil rights. Millions in revenue from red light cameras without any compliance, regulations, or legislation from our Government for protecting citizens. My point is no warning systems, such as timers to warn drivers. I'm not sure, but I feel like the yellow lights are shortened at the red light camera points. How about right hand turns? I've received two now for over $400, while coming to a rolling stop. Because I rolled and didn't completely stop, I've been burned. How is this safety related? Don't buy it for a second. This is pure revenue with a slight safety benefit. Please write your Senator and Congress regarding a need for compliance and regulations to take on this predatory industry.

I got one of these phantom tickets in Az. I thought it was a legitimate citation until someone informed me that it was not from a law enforcement agency in Phoenix. It was from Redflex Traffic Systems...from Australia?
I thought to myself, if I'm getting a ticket, I sure as heck would like to speak with the officer, or at least, excise my due process rights?

What is going on?! Is this another scam by our state and locals governments to rape us for more money because they can not manage their own budgets. Vote'em all out...

Redflex is a criminal enterprise whose CEO was just indicted for fraud. They manipulate the traffic lights by shortening the yellow light to less than 4 seconds. Which lets you enter the intersection on yellow and their camera has already clicked you entering the intersection, then the countdown had already begun and clicks again turning the light to red immediately catching you in the middle of the intersection. The camera set up isn't reliable or monitored. You've now been set up. So weeks later you get a trumped-up phony citation not sanctioned by the DMV, issuing you a pricey ticket with 3 colored photographs of you running what looks like a red light. Redflex's cameras are set up to nail law-abiding citizens who are too busy to question it and they just say to themselves I'll just pay it. . Don't pay it. You are innocent. If you do pay it, your paying for criminal activity pointed at all the citizenry to entrap everyone. This is an offshore Co., currently under scrutiny for illegally bribing city councilmen, police officers, and politicians to purchase this pricey criminal system for their towns promising them piles of citation cash will come their way. Where does all this money go? How is this money spent?. This Redflex is costing the taxpayers because this system isn't cheap and an office has to be created in city hall, hire staff and managers to manage this kangaroo court for those of us who know we have just been screwed by Redflex and demand a "hearing" to Fight it because every American citizen has the Constitutional Right to confront their accuser and a snapshot and video cannot be cross-examined and its flat out illegal for your fate to be ruled on by some attorney employed by Redflex, paid by Redflex, and who is not a Traffic Court Judge. This is an outrage. A phony kangaroo court without due process. Read the 6th amendment which protects your rights as a citizen to physically look at and cross-examine your accuser. Across the country, most Americans do alot of driving and one thing they count on is the timing of the yellow light which warns you to clear the intersection because the light will soon turn red. Since Redflex's light is timed at the moment you approach the intersection, you see a yellow light so you know by experience you have plenty of time to go through the intersection legally and make it all the way through and if there was a car behind you, he or she would probably have enough time to make it through as well. Not with Redflex, the second your vehicle goes under the traffic light it's already red cause the Redflex camera has already clicked it red and now you are on camera with your car in the middle of the intersection on a red light and since the camera only takes photos that are red. Redflex does not have the ability to accurately photograph the truth, but goes overboard to prove you are a speeder, a liar, drunk, or just ran a red light which you probably do on a regular basis. This is what they want ...to convince you that you are a chronic lawbreaker and it took Redflex to catch you red-handed. The yellow light in Redflex is timed to last 4 seconds.flat about 15 seconds shorter than a standard yellow light. Redflex is a criminal enterprise in the worst possible way imaginable. No standards/No Oversight. Who pays for Redflex's local office its managers and staff and attorney who hears your complaints if you demand a "hearing" in their Kangaroo court that's not a Traffic Court? Each and everyone of you who pay their illegal citation. Redflex cameras generate over $100, 000 a year in revenue off each Redflex Camera mounted in your city? Who's getting the money? Who is lining their wallets?? How is this money spent?? Redflex does not have the power to send out warrants or put points on your drivers' license either. Since The DMV does not recognize Redflex as a legitimate entity, Redflex has no power. This regime called Redflex are extortionists preying on hard-working folks to pay a phony citation to line the pockets of this Austrailian Company and their local offices who run this ponzi scheme scamming it's own citizens. Shame on them. And Redflex is using our US postal service to deliver these false citations I believe is a crime as well.
