The following was copied from an AzCentral.com "Plugged In" blog. GDT has not confirmed the accuracy of the information."The cameras on Scottsdale's 6.5 miles of the 101 have so far netted a profit of $3.6 million over nine months. Of that, Scottsdale cleared $800,000, the courts got nearly $500,000 and the state saw a tidy $2.3 million. And that's with 17,000 of the 90,000 tickets still to be settled."
Arizona governor Janet Napolitano might be interested in using photo radar on all Valley of the Sun freeways.
Photo radar will be reactivated on Scottsdale's Loop 101 on 22 February 2007. The city is forecasting a
$1.2 millionprofit by the end of June. 2005 census estimates peg Scottsdale's population at
226,013 people; therefore, the city is forecasting photo radar generating approximately
$5.31 per residentby mid-year.
