Beaverton, OR: No Confidence in its Photo Radar Legality
Beaverton, Oregon is afraid to defend the legality of its photo radar program.

John Henry Hingson
John Henry Hingson, an attorney who practices in Beaverton, Oregon is ready to mount a legal challenge to the city's photo radar program -- except the city refuses to defend it in a court of law.

In the past three attempts at a trial, Beaverton has dropped charges against Hingson's clients. Most recently, the city dismissed the case just 2 minutes before the trial was to begin.

"What I don't like is the city stealing cookies from the cookie jar, and then when it gets caught, it puts the cookies back and says it didn't do anything wrong," Hingson told the Oregonian. He is fighting the photo radar case on principle and does not charge his clients.

Article Excerpt:
Hingson won another photo radar in Municipal Court last week -- without even entering the courtroom. It's his third victory in a row, and he's pretty ticked off about it. "They're scared," he said. "That's the reason they keep running away."
