The city of Scottsdale, AZ  officially flicked on its system of speed cameras last Wednesday morning at 12:01 AM, which was immediately followed by a southbound vehicle on the Loop 101 Freeway triggering the first snap. By noon the cameras had flashed their bulbs 167 times.
Scottsdale’s project follows a 31-day warning period in which 770 vehicles a day were detected going 11 mph or more over the 65 mph speed limit. That average rose to about 1,400 times a day during the weekend and holidays.

An average speeding ticket is expected to cost a Scottsdale motorist $157, which means speed camera-generated revenue may soon be able to fund Lyle Lanley’s proposed monorail.
