Red-light camera firm bribed officials in 13 states, says fired sales exec.

A fired executive from a national red-light camera vendor claimed in an Arizona lawsuit that the company provided lavish gifts and bribes to government officials in 13 states to secure new contracts.

The New Jersey Star-Ledger reported Saturday that the bombshell allegations made a 13-page counterclaim by Aaron Rosenberg, former nationwide lead salesman for Redflex Traffic Systems of Phoenix, claimed that the firm “bestowed gifts and bribes on … officials in dozens of municipalities within, but not limited to the following states: California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Florida, New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia, and Georgia.”

So, are these allegations true or is this a disgruntled employee?

Wouldnt surprise me if true though Im not sure why they needed to bribe anyone. Almost every government (local, county and state) is bankrupt or in some kind of financial trouble.

Rather than making spending cuts and taking responsibility for their financial crimes, they simply look for new ways to extort more money from the slaves.

In a nation of failed, criminal governments, seems like the cameras would sell themselves...

More tickets equals more money to the state, and counties.

Would not surprise me in the least if it was true.

That is what they call a 'win- win'.

They have to pay for them new 'police' cars some way.

Red-light cameras... Another government scheme to get money out of the citizenry while disguising it with slogans like protecting the public or making them safer. Stupid BS... Just like taxing cigarettes.

I loathe scameras. Not to mention, they are not legal. You should see what goes on in my state.
The worst camera offender of them all.

Cameras rife with bogus claims

Some cameras had errors as high as 50%.

Talk about blatantly breaking the law.
