Jack Shultz is Edmonton’s Own Photo Radar Objection Devotee

Meet Edmonton’s own photo radar objection devotee, Jack Shultz.

STORY UPDATED — JUNE 2, 2016, 1:26AM

Meet Jack Shultz. Jack Shultz has become well known for placing giant yellow “RADAR AHEAD” signs on the back of his truck and car, then parking it a few hundred feet behind photo radar trucks parked around the city of Edmonton. He has also stood outside of his vehicle for hours on end, holding this same sign. Rain or shine, it doesn’t matter.

He does it for a couple of hours, nearly every day of the week, and he’s becoming well known on the social media magnate, Facebook (Closed group – You must join before being able to see any of the posts). He’s been at it for roughly a month as of this writing.

LOCAL HERO — I guess you can almost say that Mr. Shultz is some sort of a local hero. He’s basically making sure that we are made aware of the photo radar trucks that attempt their best at hiding behind bushes, bus stops, around corners, bridges, etc. Sometimes these trucks are actually hidden pretty darn good, too.

CASH COW CONFIRMED — I must say though, if Edmonton’s photo radar was indeed intended not to be a cash cow, then why is it that these trucks are always being spotted hidden behind such obstacles? This literally makes zero sense, no matter which way you look at it. It simply proves to us as motorists, that the main reason behind these photo radar trucks found all over Edmonton, is to make money. Otherwise, they simply wouldn’t be hidden. Period.

Here’s a video of an Edmonton Police Service officer kindly informing Mr. Shultz how to do things according to the law:

Good on this officer. The situation was dealt with exceptionally well, unlike prior events leading to this approach. Mr. Shultz informs me that he was given a stunting ticket by a prior EPS officer, when in reality, he wasn’t stunting at all.

Jack Shultz, thank you for taking time out of your day to make sure that Edmontonians are not causing accidents by slamming their brakes at the sight of a photo radar truck.

Here’s a well written quote by just one of Mr. Shultz’ many supporters:

We need more people like Jack Schultz who are not afraid to stand up for #CommonSense. People who say that if you “speed” and break the law, you deserve a ticket have their heads firmly planted in the sand. They don’t realize that Jack is raising a freedom of speech issue while at the same time pointing out that photo radar is CLEARLY NOT ABOUT SAFETY but controlling and disrespecting law abiding drivers. Most people who get photo radar tickets are just going a few kilometres over on a highway which can hardly be considered unsafe. Photo radar is an example of oppression and people who call Jack an idiot for standing up to this are morons.Sabine Brasok

You know, it has been said on more than one occasion, and it has in fact been proven that, speed is not the main factor in vehicle collisions. If the flow of traffic on a two or three lane freeway with a 60km/hr posted speed limit is actually moving at 75km/hr, then it is a lot safer to travel at 75km/hr rather than the posted speed limit of 60km/hr. This isn’t to say that I’m insisting that you break the law, of course. Never would I say something so ridiculous. I’m just saying that it has been proven to be safer, which makes complete sense to me. Let’s not get too far into the legalities of this whole debate though.

OPPOSITION — Of course, as to be expected, Mr. Shultz does have a number of people that are against what he is doing, but I mean, in today’s day in age, it’s impossible to please the masses. You’ll always have someone that is entirely against what you are doing, no matter what it is you are doing. You could give everyone on earth a million bucks, and you would still have millions of people raging in anger. It’s just how the world works. Everybody is different.

Mr. Shultz has been approached by the EPS on countless occasions, and has even been given a stunting ticket a couple of weeks ago, which the people of Edmonton have kindly paid off for him through a gofundme page set up for him. It is against the law to wave around a sign or jump up and down to gather the attention of drivers, however Mr. Shultz tells me that he wasn’t actually doing this at all, and so the stunting ticket he was issued should never have been given to him.

I spoke with Mr. Shultz over the phone moments ago. He informs me that:

(Written in 3rd person) He invites any and all people against what he is doing to go out and spend some time by his side when he’s out and about, so that you can see in person just how what he is doing is helping the public’s road safety. He goes on to say that these photo radar trucks are not about the safety of our drivers, it’s about the millions of dollars they’re bringing in, and quite frankly I agree with him one hundred percent.Jack Shultz

In the end, what he is doing today is entirely legal, and he continues to spend countless hours each week locating photo radar trucks, and informing motorists.

Are you for or against what Mr. Shultz is doing?

Leave a comment below and let us know. We’d love to hear from you!

      Phillip, he isn’t saving me a damn thing. I don’t speed, thus I don’t get photo radar tickets. I don’t want to help the Ahole who is behind me losing their mind because I’m going the speed limit and they are mad at me for it.

      HAHA. Stacey, I but you also drive in the left line for no damn reason.
      This guy is doing a service. If cops want to fine people for speeding they had better be out catching them speeding. Unmanned photo radar is just a money grab. If a cop catches you it’s points off your license, if it’s just the truck, no points.

      It has nothing to do with if or why I am speeding. It has everything to do with the supposed intention of speed enforcement, which is to slow people down and make the roads safer, which of course it doesn’t.

    Why is it that, it never comes to the point of teaching people how to control a vehicle properly. Making more laws because you don’t know what to do or just want the money doesn’t solve anything. Speed doesn’t kill as ofter as not paying attention and panic does. What’s a photo radar ticket to the wealthy? If you want to make it a lesson base the ticket price to match your income

      There has been multiple reports showing that speed limits should be raised to actually lower traffic incidents and the city of Edmonton refuses to acknowledge them.

      BC has raised their highway limits to 120km/h and all reports after a year of them raising this limit has shown their highway accident statistics have declined and the highways are safer than they were a year ago when the limit was 110km/h even though people haven’t changed their driving speed cause most people do 120 on the highway anyways just now they are doing the speed limit instead of speeding and no one really driving at slower speeds. It’s all about the flow of traffic.

      BC also does not have photo radar either.

    I would like to know how they get to park on bridges and radar below. I have looked at the highway traffic act, latest update I could find. And it’s illegal to park on a bridge unless directed to do so briefly by a police officer. I don’t speed, nor get tickets but this is just a cash cow, tax on the unobservant. That being said those hired to enforce the law should not be able to break the law to so.

      Personally, I am entirely against photo radar that places themselves at the bottom of hills. This makes me angry. Even with cruise control set to 50, going down a steep hill (which there are many in Edmonton), your car can accelerate to 56 or higher, which gets you a ticket. For shame.

      This is why I think that photo radar should only ticket those going 10 or above the limit. Not 6 above.

      If you can’t match your speedometer to the signs posted (yep, that means using your brakes on a hill), you shouldn’t have the privilege of driving. It’s a simple concept.

      I disagree with this point from talk Edmonton. If you tried using your cruise control on a driver’s test you’d fail.
      Cruise control isn’t meant for city driving. Many vehicles won’t even let you engage cruise under 60km/hr.

    I’ve gotten 2 radar tickets in my life, and they were where the speed limit changed and at the bottom of a hill. You can’t tell me that those tickets were given to me to get me to stop speeding excessively, because I wasn’t. They were nothing but a money grab, taking food out of my children’s mouths. They didn’t get me to slow down, mainly because I was slowing down anyway, but also because I was oblivious to the tickets until I got them in the mail. This guy IS getting people to slow down. Good for him!

Open your eyes when you drive, keep an eye out for the posted speed limits, go the limit ( I know, that logic seems to be too hard for you ) and then, it’s the most amazing thing- you won’t get another ticket!!! Wow what a concept, huh?!

    So for me personally I love what he is doing! But on hat note if jumping around waving a sign is Illegal then how do so many businesses like Little Ceasars pizza get away with putting their employees out on he side of the road dressed up in a costume waving a sign get away with it?? Just saying….. That’s way more distracting than what is going on here!

    If it is not a cash cow then how come they are upset and giving him ridiculous tickets? If the idea behind photo radar is to get them to slow down and they are because of his sign, who should be upset? If you understand that photo radar is there for a reason isn’t he accomplishing the same? Different styles, punitive damage for something that can be controlled otherwise is ridiculous. The reality is that going 60 in a 60 zone is no safer than going 70 if conditions are realistic for 70. IE, no pedestrians, schools, parks, merging lanes, turn offs, visibility, construction animals or heavy traffic. Some of the speeds limits do not meet the conditions and seem to only be there to provide the ability to ticket. A good example of this is the speed limit imposed from Ray Gibbons on 137th East. There is nothing after the tracks yet 60 is imposed. Accidents are mostly about the driver and lack of attention. Not the difference between 5 km/hr. In reality this photo radar explosion seems to be making traffic more congested and drivers more mindless. A sign of the lack of common sense prevalent in these days. I think this has a lot to do with the frustration of the people. And to those who say slow down and it wouldn’t be a problem, I’ve had 2 in my 28 years of driving. So don’t assume that because people don’t agree it is because they are doing things wrong. One of which I totally needed to remind me to slow down in a certain area and one that was for 5 km over in what I would consider a dirty zone, not in excess, its not about that. It is about the reason that they are doing it. Ask yourself what do you think the actual total of unsafe drivers are getting these tickets? How much are they collecting? Where is the money going? Are they stopping unsafe drivers from causing an accident that day? Why did they lower it from 10 km over to 5 km over? I know a few drivers who collect a lot and feel there is room for improvement, but hey who is perfect? Although one individual collects 3/month they have never in 45 years of driving been in an accident and never been stopped by an actual officer. I also know a few who are in minor accidents who never get photo radar. Smart people question and compare. Reality is when you do that it is expensive to reoccurring break the speed limit. And easy not to if we are focused and the limit is realistic. Thanks for reminding those that need it to slow down, saving them a few bucks and actually slowing them down for the rest of the road if “that makes them a safer driver”. So thanks for saving them a few bucks.

    I want to make a statement to all you that think you fucking know me.
    Everyone is in titled to there opinion and I respect that…..and on that note I ask who the fuck are you to assume I am committing fraud in due to my disability. I don’t need to explain to any of you, but because half of you think you know everything I will educate your pea brain.
    I have a disability yes, I also have treatment 5 days aweek.
    Do you not consider cancer or hemophilia, ptsd, mental illness…. ect ect ect as a disability you moron.

    And for the record my insurance company knows what I am doing. So to sit there and accuse someone of a crime that hasn’t been committed makes you look pretty fucking stupid.
    And to the dipshit that made the comment that ” I’m looking for attention and that my wife is out of the picture” you my friend are a real fucking idiot… I have a beautiful woman of 12 yrs and beautiful children by my side…sorry for the language but…..fuck you!!! Dipshit…oh ya Jackie…I’m the jackass??? Fuck you to.

      Actully Jeff Mcdonald my life is far from boring. I do this for safety reasons as I am a family man and I have 500 hours of video that proves what I am saying/doing is”infact” making our streets safer.
      And for the record people I really don’t care about the negative responses from some readers….with that being said I invite you to see the 500 hours of “facts” I have gathered and if you can pull your head out your ass long enough to watch it. Your thoughts on photo radar regarding safety WILL change.
      Have a great day people.

      Lpo’s are hired to help contravene loss of property. A real crime. Theft.

      Photo radar is hired to generate revenue. They don’t stop any crime. They generate revenue.

      One might argue that their presence helps to intimidate drivers to follow speed limits, sure, but their job, as hired, benefits nobody directly, but the payee on the ticket.

      driving dangerous causing bodily harm and causing death is punishable by the CCofC. “Affects no one directly”? Tell that to the families that have been affected by someone speeding, which either killed a person or caused severe enough injuries that now that person has to depend on other ppl for the basics of life.

    I find it ridiculous that the city and province claim that photo radar is for safety. How does photo radar slow people down at the point of their offence? It takes at least a week to receive a ticket and in the meantime the offender can continue to speed and possibly endanger other people or himself. A instant traffic stop is most effective for slowing people down. Getting a ticket a week later is like spanking your child a week after he did something wrong. No one is perfect and we all need reminders to slow down. There should also be a debate on unreasonable speed limits and traffic light timing.

    Funny thing is that when photo radar was first introduced in Edmonton they were required to set up a sign within 500m, then it became the permanent logo ones, now nothing.
    All this guy is doing is what was originally required by law when photo radar was introduced as a deterrent to speeding, before it became about profit.

    Also if it wasn’t about making money hand over fist; the radar wagons would be in front of schools and not the side of the freeway.

    I find it fundamentally wrong for any form of law enforcement having to hide and wait for someone to break the law; this is a form of entrapment. I’m all for proactive and visible enforcement in school and playground zones, or any areas where pedestrians may be encountered. This form of enforcement indeed protects the general public.

    More so, we should be asking why do people speed?
    The way I see it, there are two types of speeders, firstly the type that travel at reckless speeds without regard to other drivers, pedestrians and self safety. These individuals should be fined heavily to the full extent of what the law allows.

    The second type are commuters trying to travel from point A to B in an efficient manner, driving with the flow of traffic, perhaps exceeding the speed limit 10 to 15 over the posted limit, but in keeping with traffic on major arterial routes.

    Do the second category speeders do so because the existing speed limits are unreasonably low for the roadway? Is it because Edmonton has one of the most poorly planned and executed transportation systems in Canada causing driver frustration? Who determines what a reasonable speed is for any given roadway, our inept city transportation department?

    With the exception of the Anthony Henday, Edmonton has only one major roadway that enters the city and exits out the other side, the Yellowhead Trail, which is hobbled due to all the unnecessary intersections like 66 street, 89 street, 142 street and 149 street.

    Every other roadway is a failure in this respect: Calgary Trail north winds up in a residential district and dead ends at Saskatchewan Drive.

    The Whitemud narrows down into a residential area at the west end of the city, which negates the ability to extend it westward as the city grows.

    Manning Freeway bottlenecks into Fort Road, only to open up into the Capilano Freeway which bottlenecks again into a residential district south of 101 Ave..

    Highway 2 from St. Albert (St. Albert Trail) after passing through the residential areas of Dovercourt and Sherbrooke changes to Groat Road, only to wind up in the University residential area.

    The examples go on and on throughout this City. When will Edmonton wake up and send some transportation planners to observe other major North American cities and learn how the big boys deal with these problems, rather than perpetuating the old boys club and sticking their heads in the sand? Should they choose to ever make so bold a change, they might even learn how to make the LRT work. I wonder, do any of the proceeds from photo radar actually contribute towards improving the transportation system?

    Might this be an answer towards reducing driver frustration, accidents and speeding? I think it would be a good start.

        Anyone with a semi half decent job (basically anything above min wage isn’t gonna care how many “Photo Radar” tickets they get unless they are living well beyond their means.

        Hell, I used to pay between $1800-$2000 each year renewing my registration in photo radar tickets and I don’t even give it a second thought. Now, with I use a radar detector and jammer and have knocked that down to $1000-$1200. Keep forgetting about the damn overpasses on hendey and the bushes in Fort Sask.

        No one gives a crap about photo radar.

        Photo Radar should be only be located near school zones, playground zones and close residential areas that have children cause if you speed around children you deserve every ticket but places like that are major roadways like Yellowhead, Whitemud, Hendey it nothing but a cash cow and the city can’t even admit that.

        They claim its safety but how exactly does it deter people or make people learn?:
        — Oh no, I was speeding and got a ticket in the mail 2-3 weeks later and don’t even remember that day I got the ticket or where it was… YUP that’ll teach me.
        — Oh no, I got a ticket and it doesn’t effect my insurance or license in any way.
        — Oh I’m speeding and see the radar vehicle better slam on my brakes down to the speed limit and cause others to slam on their brakes as well and cause accidents and/or near accidents. (keep in mind in Alberta and most of Canada if someone rear ends you, they are automatically at fault and with the economy in a bit of a rut can you guess what’s an easy way to make a bit of money?)

        Yup please tell me more how this makes the roads “safer” as they TRY to claim?

        I think more people would be less pissed at photo radar if the city would just admit it was a gigantic cash cow and has nothing to do with safety cause there is absolutely ZERO statistics to show photo radar has made roads safer in ANY way shape or form. Look up traffic statistics for Edmonton each year and look up the stats for cities like Ottawa that doesn’t have photo radar. The stats per capita are almost identical with the exception that Alberta has handed out something like 1000% more tickets lol

        Also, when EPS ran photo radar they had their limits set to 15km/h over and would locate themselves virtually plain as day out there in popular heavy speeding areas.

        City takes over and they drop it down to 10km/h (I’ve heard some have even gotten 8km/h over but cannot confirm this as I don’t know anyone who has received one of these supposed tickets) and have gone to great lengths to hide and blend in and have put probably 20x if not more photo radar vehicles out each day and go to great lengths to blend in from using rental vehicles, city vehicles to even mini vans that are vinyl wrapped advertising.

      If the purpose was soley safty related they wouldn’t have to hide, and every single person who has driven a motor vehicle has at least once broken the speed limit it doesn’t matter if you speed regularly or rarely the point is it has become about revenue not safety as they claim so enough with the slow down and you won’t get a ticket bullshit the fact is it’s about money and how they entrap you to get it.

      I agree. If they really want to stop people from speeding they should have cops out there giving tickets and demerits. People will pay their photo tickets without a second thought yet when they are pulled over they will be more likely to think about the consequences the next time.

      “…pictorial evidence shows he’s capable of employment.” This quote in and of itself is entirely selfish. To be disabled most certainly does not mean one cannot walk, or that the disability that they have is visually noticeable.

      Claiming a man is commuting fraud could be what he needs to tip him over the edge if the disability is perhaps one not of the visible type and the fact you state this without knowing this man personally and in writing it down could be liable!!! Perhaps??

        are you for real? Think about that for a minute. This guy has done radio interviews and put himself in the public eye. He goes out for hours at a time and organizes his “movement” . I call road apples. Attention seeker and capable of employment. Possibly Walmart greeter in the least. But he is capable!

      Fraud?? Do you know what my employment was prior to my accident?? No you don’t…. My disability effects my employment yes…but does that mean I can’t stand on the sidewalk and hold a sign? ?? Thanks for your comment…lol

    Don’t want photo ticket then obey the law. You shouldn’t need someone with a sign to tell to slow down here and speed up again in 3 blocks. Do you need someone to hold up a sign too tell you not to kill. I hate speeding tickets but if i get caught i get a ticket and pay it.

      You don’t pay it willingly you pay it cuz you were busted, if you paid it willingly everytime you looked down at your speedo and realized you were speeding you would send them a check without the ticket. So get off it buddy.

      I don’t understand why people hate photo so much, if they admit to speeding so regularly? You’re saying you’d rather get pulled over and get demerits every time? I bet if that was the case, many on here would be suspended for too many demerits, judging by the comments!

      Okay Kendyl Hudson, you now have my full attention.

      You think this is just about speeding. That is incorrect. This is about abuse of our rights and freedoms, along with revealing a cash cow operation.

      How is it about our rights and freedoms? Let me answer that for you. During his month out, he has been approached by a multitude of officers, who have all given him conflicting information. When he stood on the side of the road and received the pedestrian stunting ticket, I can assure you that his actions violated no laws. He was acting just like every other sign holder does. Secondly, I recall a very recent video of an officer attempting to force him to remove his sign, only for a higher up to come, apologize, and assure him that he was not breaking any laws. However, a few days later, he was approached by a different officer, who promptly gave him 2 rather substantial tickets. I can not recall what they were for, but I will say that the video evidence he had of the entire situation, which includes the officer implying that he has no rights, will tear those tickets apart in court.

      Now, how is it a cash cow operation? Let me inform you. There have been a tremendous amount of incidents here, where officers are unable to produce the calibration data for their radar/ladar/laser guns, when asked to do so in court. What does that mean? Well, it means that when you’re going the speed limit, the gun that reads your speed could be off by an extraordinary amount. Until these guns are maintained, serviced, and calibrated properly, I have every reason the doubt that it is about safety.

      So I beg you, do some reading and use your brain, and reply with a logical counter-argument or don’t reply at all.

      Oh yea, on last thing, Edmonton’s road speeds are 60% below the global average. I’d love to see you try to drive in Europe…it would be very educational 😉

      Really? Who says I go “under the limit”? There is this thing called a speedometer, you match the numbers on it to the numbers on the sign. Simple. And I’ve driven everything from a 20ft flat deck to a V8 SUV to a turbocharged car. They all work just the same way.

      Mike, when u get pulled over for speeding, you are within your right to ask for the radar reading, and if they cannot produce this information they can not write a ticket. Use this ploy with extreme caution though because someone I know did this and ended up walking away with over $700 in fines because his vehicle had numerous problems.

      Hey Mike Christy, I have my radar/laser certs, so I know how they work, thanks. They are only off by +/- 1, and are tested daily and calibrated yearly. But thanks for your guesses. As for this douches “rights”, writing him a ticket doesn’t abuse any of them. It is the officers discretion to write them, and up to the judge to convict him. And yes, what he is doing is in violation of S.115(2)(e) of the TSA.

    They should ban idiots who can’t read traffic signs. It says 50 not 55-65. If you not monitoring your speed, you get a ticket. And yes, sometimes the speed limit changes abruptly. It’s called scanning ahead and being aware. If you can’t do these things, take the bus.

        Real officers that hand out tickets, effect your insurance rates and your license with the use of demerits. Photo Radar does neither of these.

        Edmonton has something like 13 out of 16 homicides unsolved this year so far and more cops setup on road ways catching people for tint than they do trying to solve actual crimes lol

        I know during the incident of the picture with the 2 EPS SUVs that another member of the facebook group that didn’t live far from that location had been waiting for over and hour for officers to come to her house about a report of a break and enter report, yet they can send 2 EPS vehicles in regards to a car parked with a sign saying “Radar Ahead”.

        Clearly EPS has their priorities mixed up.

        Anything below 10km/h will get thrown out of court without virtually any question. Zero tolerance doesn’t work and cannot work.

        Speedometers from the manufacturers can be anywhere from 0-8% off on its own, then factor in improper tire pressures (pressures are your responsibility) can throw it anywhere from 1-2% off which is why 10km/h is the minimum that will actually hold up cause even if your speedometer should be 8% out (extreme case) anything else factoring in it reading anything further off is due to the owner/driver of the vehicle

        Examples
        — Tire pressures
        — Over/Under sized tires/wheels
        — Changed gear ratios (if RWD)

        Those are some examples of the most common responsibility of the driver/owner.

        8km over isn’t really excessive speeding. Depending on where they hide at it wouldn’t be hard to catch too many people going very little over the speed limit. I guarantee that of you have a drivers licence you can be blamed of speeding many times in your life. Unless of course you are one of those people who always drive 10km under the speed limit and are just as much of a hazard as those who drive 10 km over…

      I agree that its money grab. Always find that its a bottomn of a hill or a speed change area. If they were truly comcerned for puplic safety you would find them around school zones and retirement homes or close to trail crossings etc. But no…typically find radar on the freeways and highways…where 5-10km/hr “offenders”fill the bill just right for the cash cow.

    I hate when I get a ticket for speeding but if I was , it’s my own fault. In my opinion, photo radar is not a cash cow. If I was speeding I deserve a ticket. What is the difference between a photo radar vehicle hidden behind a bush or an actual police officer with a radar gun hidden behind the bush. Either way I am guilty and they will get me.
