Scottsdale Speed Cameras Turned On Again

The six cameras along Scottsdale's 7.8-mile section of the Loop 101 Freeway will be activated at 12:01 a.m. Feb. 22. Under the program, motorists detected traveling 11 mph or more over the 65 mph posted speed limit will be cited for a speeding violation. Scottsdale will post warning signs along the freeway prior to the camera activation to ensure motorists are aware of the enforcement program. Scottsdale concluded a nine-month photo enforcement demonstration program along its section of the Loop 101 Freeway in October 2006. The speed limit on this stretch of the Loop 101 freeway is 65 mph, and the equipment has been set to photograph drivers when they are moving at 76 mph or faster.
