It looks like the state's photo-radar program is taking shape, according to the Associated Press.

Note this detail at the end:

While one potential vendor reportedly wants Arizona to switch to having vehicle owners instead of drivers held legally responsible for citations, Woodward said DPS is not considering that measure. "At this point we would leave that to the Legislature," he said.

The East Valley Tribune reported April 16 that Scottsdale-based American Traffic Solutions was trying to gather legislative support for a switch in the citation liability.

Are too many scofflaws finding ways to slip through the legal cracks? And should we really be shifting the blame from guilty parties to property owners so that a private company can increase their profits?
