PHOENIX (AP) Arizona ends its groundbreaking speed enforcement program Thursday with the expiration of a company's two-year contract that put dozens of cameras along Phoenix-area freeways and other highways across the state.
The contract that the Department of Public Safety awarded Redflex Traffic Systems expires at 11:59 p.m. MST Thursday.
The 76 fixed and mobile cameras will go dark then, but Redflex says notices for speed violations before the program's end will continue to be processed after that.
Gov. Jan Brewer decided back in January to end the program and the DPS made that official in May when it issued Redflex a non-renewal notice. The state program's end doesn't affect those run by various local governments.
