The event is being hosted by Jack Shultz, Robbie Wood & Steve Friske.
EDMONTON — What is the Cash Cow Extravaganza? It is an event taking place across the entire city of Edmonton on Saturday, August 27th to attempt to fight photo radar.
The goal of the event, with at least 18 people confirming that they will be attending, and another 47 people saying that they are interested in attending, is to get enough people to park behind photo radar vehicles and either hold up or tape giant “Radar ahead” signs to inform drivers of photo radar trucks across the city for one full day.
They hope to get at least two or three people per photo radar truck. The reason for this, is to keep everyone safe and to make sure that no unfair tickets are issued.
What they plan on doing is entirely legal, just as long as no one is waving their signs around or otherwise distracting drivers on our roads.
Jack Shultz has been doing this on his own now for several months, putting in over 500 hours into helping people on Edmonton’s roads; preventing them from receiving cash cow tickets.

Cash cow in this sense is a photo radar truck & operator, because as we are all aware by this point, photo radar in this city is not about safety, but rather, about making a very, very steady income.
The reason there’s a group of over 12,000 people in Edmonton fighting photo radar in Edmonton is because tickets are being issued for going as low as 5 over the speed limit. They feel that this is unacceptable, as do I. 5 over the speed limit can happen very easily, and being ticketed for it is, arguably, unfair.
In fact, I have been speaking with Jack Shultz and Robbie Wood personally, and will be attending the Cash Cow Extravaganza myself. Feel free to wave or give a quick toot of the horn if you see any of us. We’re doing this for you.
Understandably, there will be many people against what this group is doing. That is to be expected. If you’re speeding, you deserve the ticket received. But we feel that getting a ticket for going 5 to 8 over the speed limit is a little much.

If you don’t have a vehicle, yet still want to join us, they will be organizing to pick people up in the coming days, so don’t let that deter you from being a part of the event. The more the merrier.
Robbie Wood will be the official legal representative for the entire event. He is the one to get in contact with if you need to fight any and all traffic-related tickets.
In other news, the City of Edmonton just announced yesterday that they will be re-deploying their disguised photo radar boxes. As to be expected, Jack Shultz & Robbie Wood are looking into how they can disrupt these as well.
