Arizona: House Panel Passes Freeway Photo Radar Ban
An Arizona state House committee approves a ban on freeway speed cameras.

Loop 101
The Arizona House Transportation Committee passed a bill designed to scuttle plans by the city of Scottsdale to use photo radar on freeways. The legislation would deny authority to cities to use the technology on freeways without express permission from the legislature.

Scottsdale has been planning to use speed cameras on a six-mile stretch of Loop 101. The legislation will now come before the full state House.
