Photo Radar Traffic Enforcement

The State of Arizona’s Department of Public Safety ended its use of photo radar for traffic enforcement in 2010.

In January 2014, The Pima County Board of Supervisors stopped its photo enforcement of speeding laws, at least temporarily.  The board voted 4-0 not to renew the photo enforcement contract with American Traffic Solutions, the company that operates the cameras.

However, the City of Tucson still uses photo radar to enforce traffic laws.  Questions about photo traffic enforcement can be directed to the Tucson Police Department’s Photo Enforcement Unit at 791-4040. More information about photo enforcement in Tucson, including statistics and details about the citation procedure, can be found online at http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/police/photo-enforcement-unit.
