    We should NOT be considering red light surveillance cameras in Phoenix or any other area. Please do not move forward with action on this item or vote NO. We need to further evaluate this issue with appropriate and thorough studies and citizen/resident feedback. Moving to this action negatively impacts people, their privacy and certainly raises equity concerns.

    We the people do not want this without a study or evidence that this is the only option. There are many ways to deal with red light challenges and in order to make the best decision for we the taxpayers invest in a study that explores all options, the costs, and the effectiveness of each. In addition, we need police on the streets. I watched at a 15mile an hour school zone cars going 30 plus miles and hour. Put police on the street before these kiddos get hit by speeders in school zones.

    This program would increase surveillance and ticketing in ways that raise fundamental privacy and equity concerns.
    • A 3yr PILOT safety study of the effectiveness of longer yellow light times and intersection improvements before any consideration of red light and speed cameras.
    • Citizen Town Halls in each Council District to get public feedback on the use of ticketing cameras.
    • A Council Subcommittee to protect civil liberties
    • Comprehensive Guidelines to ensure no revenue generation

    Kindly halt action; oppose if advanced. I advocate for:
    • Council Subcommittee to set clear camera guidelines, preventing police surveillance.
    • Conduct Citizen Town Halls in every Council District for public opinions on automation.
    • Develop comprehensive guidelines to ensure the program prioritizes safety and equity over revenue.
    • Conduct a multi-year safety assessment on extended yellow light durations & intersection enhancements before automation considerations.
    Thanks.

    Automated enforcement cameras will not properly address the poor safery conditions caused by the current highway style design of our streets. PHX's roads are engineered to move vehicles at very high speeds, placing cameras and calling it "safety" is lazy and is a poor attempt to shift the responsibility to the victums of professinally negligent Streets Dept engineers. The sames ones who vetted the new design manual with design speeds 10+ mph over the limit.

    Please do not take action on Agenda Item #7. If there is action, vote no. Item 7 is inequitable because red light cameras most negatively impact the poor and most impacted communities. Red Light Cameras do not prevent accidents from happening, they are reactionary and do not alter habits. It takes weeks for a violator to get the ticket in the mail. Studies have shown serious injuries and accidents increase when red light cameras are installed

    I oppose on the basis of racial & economic disparities where cameras historically are implemented in low income neighborhoods which commonly have the worst highway street designs. The cameras are a smoke and mirrors charade to V0 needs. The real problem is roadway design. Stop demoting the safety of all street users, especially with this outdated & racist-classist policy. This impassioned reactionary under-educated agenda item is perverse. We need real solutions that save lives.
