Brewer Signs Bill On Photo Enforcement Cameras On Arizona Highways

Photo-enforcement-camera-radarArizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill requiring state transportation officials to confirm there is a legitimate safety need before they allow cities to put photo enforcement cameras on state highways. 

A Senate amendment to House Bill 2477 passed by the Legislature softened a requirement that cities show photo enforcement has improved safety if they want to renew their state permits every three years. 

The bill Brewer signed into law Wednesday allows non-renewal only if it cannot be shown the cameras are maintaining a "positive impact" on public safety. 

Eight cities and towns now use photo radar on stretches of state highways, and Casa Grande and Sierra Vista are working with the Arizona Department of Transportation to add them.
