      Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) 28-1593(A) specifies that a uniform traffic
      complaint may be served in person or as authorized by the Rules of Civil
      Proceedure. Complaints involving traffic accidents may be served by
      certified mail. Arizona Rules of Civil Proceedure 4(d) and 4.1(d) requre
      process to be served in person. Clearly photo radar citations sent by mail
      are illegal. Recipients of such citations should write on the envelope
      the following WITHOUT OPENING the envelope:

      REFUSED, return to sender
      unlawful service per ARS 28-1593(A)

      Then the envelope should be placed in a mail box or otherwise delivered to
      the Postal Service.

      This may prompt a visit by a cop or deputy or process server, but it at
      least makes it more difficult for the bureaucracy. Once the ticket is
      served in person, it is legal, provided it is done within 60 days of the
      alleged offense.

      The Arizona Revised Statutes are available online at the State Legislature's
      website, www.azleg.state.az.us

      The Arizona Rules of Civil Proceedure are available at the State Supreme
      Court's website, www.supreme.state.az.us/rules/
