‘Alberta Cash Cows’ Get Ready for 3rd Edmonton Cash Cow Extravaganza

It all started about a year ago this month. Jack Shultz; founder of Alberta Cash Cows, had enough with Edmonton’s photo radar, and spent countless hours doing something about it. Jack and fellow devoted Alberta Cash Cow fans from Drayton Valley, Grande Prairie and Morinville, will be swarming the city of Edmonton starting Friday, May 5, 2017 at 5 pm through to 5 pm on Sunday, May 7, 2017 with bright yellow “RADAR” signs and cut-outs of cows in an attempt to prevent photo radar from ticketing anyone for an entire day in an attempt to disrupt potential income due to disagreements with exactly how photo radar is being run in Alberta’s Capital region and beyond.

He’s been at it at least twelve months now, and there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight. Day after day, multiple times daily even, posts with photo-proof are posted on the Alberta Cash Cows Facebook page. Each photo radar truck he attends to, can take up to three hours or more before the truck changes location. It just goes to show the dedication Jack and his peers have in the fight against the exact rules set in place with photo radar in these Alberta cities.

Tomorrow marks their third Cash Cows Extravaganza event. We’ve written about their first event here, and their second event here, if you wish to take a peek back in time! They were both rather controversial articles, and with reason.


Check out the first viral article we wrote about Jack Shultz last year

We are unsure exactly how many people plan on coming out this weekend, but from the sound of things, with people coming from at least three other cities, it looks like it may go very well.

For those unaware, we’d just like to remind you that what Jack and other devotees are doing here with holding sings reading “radar” and informing drivers of what’s ahead, is not illegal in any way. They know what they’re doing and are being sure to remain within legal perimeters. Even with doing so, Jack and others have been detained on more than one occasion; but with the ultimate outcome of dropped charges in court.

If you do not happen to come across Jack or any of the others out on the streets this weekend, maybe this article in and of itself could serve as a small conscience reminder to stay within 5km/hr of the speed limit within the borders of this city if you don’t want to deal with having to fight for a speeding ticket.

While you’re out there over the weekend, if you happen to see any of the sign holders, don’t hesitate to wave, smile or thank them for what they’re attempting to do; rid this city of photo radar, or at least bring it back to reasonable standards.

Don’t forget! Tomorrow’s the big day and the more help, the better. If you want to join Jack Shultz and the team in their efforts, please do not hesitate to contact him with any questions on how to go about it! You are more than welcome to by private messaging him personally, or through his Facebook page Alberta Cash Cows, or through twitter @robinradar1.
