I just received a photo radar ticket. I know exactly what day this happened. The citation however is date for exactly one month earlier. Wondering if this is grounds for dismissal since the camera malfunctioned??

Can you prove to the court that on the date the citation shows, you were not driving? Otherwise I doubt they would even believe your story that the camera malfunctioned.

Excuse my ignorance, but aren't camera radars discontinued in the Phoenix Metro area? I believe I read an article about the AZ supreme court rulling on the subject.

They are off the highways but several cities still have them at intersections

It was for state highways only. The contract for running the cameras was not renewed by the state legislature. Nothing to do with the supreme court.

Many of the cities have their own cameras not controlled by the state.

In my experience it takes one full month for your ticket to arrive at your door or mailbox after the incident occured... So that is why you might think the timing is off - this recent ticket for a month ago could be one you were unaware of ... then you got caught again recently on the day and time you clearly remember... and that ticket could take up to a month to catch up with you... Sorry this happened..... back to back tickets is pricey and nerve wracking

They just put out a brand new radar camera on 60/Grand near Sun City. I don't remember the exact intersection but it's around Thunderbird. I was driving in the evening last week and I watched the camera flash three different times inside of 30 seconds. Thankfully it wasn't me but they are catching a lot of people speeding.

The speed limit is sooooooo slow in that area as it drops to 35 MPH in Sun City. Never mind the road was re-done with a wide 4 lane "highway" last Spring. It's so slow that I had to install some training wheels on my car to avoid tipping over.

It should be 45-55 in that area but they are forcing people to crawl for miles. Therefore, they will be catching hundreds of people who are in disbelief that a wide 4 lane road could have a 35 MPH speed limit. I suspect the town of Sun City is forcing people to go so slow unnaturally in an attempt to re-route them in future commutes.
