Justice of the Peace throwing out speed camera tickets as unconstitutional

Great article in the Arizona Republic today on JP John Keegan throwing out all speed camera tickets for being unconstitutional. Since they don't add points to a driver's record, and are less than an equivalent ticket from a police officer, they are considered a violation of equal protection. So far no higher prosecution agencies are jumping in to hear any appeals. For more reasons why Janet Cams are a bad idea, see the article I wrote earlier this month.
