Bill to prohibit photo radar fails in Ariz. Senate

 ,

A bill to bar red-light and speed cameras by Arizona local governments has narrowly failed in the state Senate.

The bill failed on a 15-15 vote Wednesday despite a plea from Senate President Russell Pearce for passage.

The bill is among several pending pieces of legislation on photo radar.

One is a resolution to put a photo radar ban to a public vote. There’s also a bill to say that a person receiving a photo-enforcement ticket doesn’t have to identify another person who is the photographed driver.
