Speeder fights ticket received during camera warning phase

| Tuesday, September 04, 2007

A man caught speeding by a camera enforcement program in Scottsdale, AZ, has vowed to fight the ticket, claiming he got the ticket during a one-month warning phase of the program.

The Scottsdale Tribune reports that, when the camera program was first rolled out in late January, officials said they would only issue warnings to those caught within the program’s first month.

Scottsdale resident Mark Bosworth received his ticket after being clocked at 110 mph on Feb.16, a week before the warning phase ended.

Bosworth and his attorneys maintain that he should be let off with a warning, but the city says it began targeting the worst offenders – those traveling upwards of 100 mph – immediately after the program began.
