australian photo enforcement company redflex for sale

The offers follow last month’s announcement that Goldman Sachs had acquired a minority stake in photo ticketing rival American Traffic Solutions (ATS). It also follows a 43 percent increase in traffic ticket revenue from the United States; the total number of ticket cameras soared from 877 to 1267.

Redflex offers “turnkey” red light camera and speed camera solutions ( view a sample presentation). With no effort or cost exposure, many government officials see nothing to lose by signing up to allow either Redflex or ATS to issue tickets on its behalf.
