O Arizona: Your Traffic Cameras are Biting you in the Ass

Greg Gurule writes:

Paradise Valley will have to refund more than $36,000 to more than 1,000 drivers who received tickets for running a bad traffic light.

The yellow turn signal at the intersection of Tatum Boulevard and McDonald Drive lasted only three seconds instead of the four-plus seconds that the city requires.

The town is investigating whether it was human error or a mechanical problem that led to the mistimed light between May 7 and June 17 of this year.

Paradise Valley said it has repaired the problem and plans to refund all the citation money to drivers who were ticketed by the bad light.
