Scottsdale Attorney Questions Photo Radar Arrest


Scottsdale, AZ, February 4, 2005. Reacting to news that the Scottsdale Police arrested a man who didn’t pay photo radar tickets, Scottsdale attorney and author, Susan Kayler, says there is no law authorizing an arrest for a speeding ticket, paid or not. Considered by many to be the expert on photo radar law Kayler believes drivers need to know that they can’t be arrested for unpaid photo radar tickets. The author of the best-selling book on photo radar, Smile for the Speed Camera--Photo Radar Exposed! (Roadrunner Publishing Partners, March 2004) remarked, “Photo radar tickets are supposed to be served by police officers or process servers. We don’t even know if the arrested man ever knew about the tickets.” Reports say that visits to the man’s home by officers and process servers were unsuccessful. “That means he was never served. If no one ever answered the door at his address, how was he supposed to even know about these tickets? The court just suspended him and they arrested him for that, not for photo radar tickets.” The man was arrested on his way to court on an unrelated matter according to police. “He may not even be the driver in any of those tickets. Arizona law requires tickets be issued to drivers, not registered owners. I’ve had clients who received dozens of tickets and weren’t driving. Had those tickets been issued to the drivers to begin with, we might see some change in driving behavior.” Kayler advises people to learn their rights and take action before their licenses get suspended. is a website with free information about photot radar. “You can’t be arrested if you don’t pay a photo radar or speeding ticket. Unpaid tickets can lead to license suspensions. You risks arrest driving on a suspended license but if you don’t drive and have 100 photo radar tickets you will never be arrested for it.” Kayler believes drivers deserve accurate information, “Scare tactics only make people lose faith in the courts.” Kayler maintains that drivers who trust the system are more likely to obey speed laws and to pay fines when they are owed.
