arizona road daleks

Never thought I'd see these things in America. Very thoughtful of Arizona to provide its citizens with drive-by justice. No need to stop and chat with a police officer, Redflex Traffic Systems simply mails you a ticket for $181.50. Oh, yes, there's an additional "fee" if you wish to try to prove your innocence in court. Good luck with that. This is a quick and easy way to raise revenues without calling them taxes. Coincidentally, it's also a highly profitable venture for the foreign corporation that convinced Arizona lawmakers to adopt the scheme.
