Brewer signs bill on photo radar on state highways

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill requiring state transportation officials to confirm there's a legitimate safety need before they allow cities to put photo enforcement cameras on state highways.

A Senate amendment to House Bill 2477 passed by the Legislature softened a requirement that cities show photo enforcement has improved safety if they want to renew their state permits every three years.

The bill Brewer signed into law Wednesday allows non-renewal only if it can't be shown the cameras are maintaining a "positive impact" on public safety.

Eight cities and towns now use photo radar on stretches of state highways, and Casa Grande and Sierra Vista are working with the Arizona Department of Transportation to add them.
