The Orange County Superior Court has responded to the public outcry and announced that beginning later this week they will stop sending the personal data of traffic ticket recipients to Nogales, Mexico.
Henceforth tickets will be processed at the court's contractor's offices in California and Arizona.
A court press release said "The public’s confidence and peace of mind regarding the security of their information is paramount to the Court."
I'm very glad to see the court respond so quickly, but can only wonder at the lack of thoughtfulness which went into the original decision, placing ticket recipients at an unusually high risk for identity theft by sending the personal data of many thousands of Americans south of the border.
