Mesa pulls photo-radar vans off city streets

MESA, AZ (AP) -

Photo-radar vans could be a thing of the past in Mesa, if the City Council has its way.

The vans were pulled off the streets last week as Mesa's initial traffic-safety contract with American Traffic Solutions Inc. expired.

The council approved a new five-year contract on Feb. 24 after city staffers and ATS spent three months making sure it conformed to several conditions imposed by the council in November.

The council also wants staffers to study whether more school-zone cameras are needed and to clarify Mesa's overall policies and procedures related to the program.

City officials promise a thorough, yearlong review of the camera system. It will be due for council review early next year.
