Scandal-Plagued Traffic Camera Company Encourages Whistleblowers

Trying to recover lost ground


As a way to improve its image in the wake of a massive bribery scandal, Redflex Traffic Systems has added a "compliance center" to its website that encourages employees to come forward and report wrongdoing at the second-largest provider of red light cameras and speed cameras.

"All Redflex employees and directors are required to report any violations or potential violations of this procedure or the applicable anti-bribery laws," the new rules state.

The "zero tolerance" policy was put in place after the company began losing business from the revelations of bribery that first appeared in the Chicago Tribune newspaper.
