Oregon Road Cams: A Look at the Latest News
Oregon Road Camera owner Tim Maughan told Fox News he will not renew his company’s contract with Oregon Road and will no longer be able to do the Oregon Road Cam, which has been in service for more than 25 years.
Maughon told Fox that he was told his company had been doing the Oregon Cam for years and that he should have stopped, he added.
He said he did not want to keep his customers, but said he has to make a choice to stop doing the cam or be forced to pay for the cost of a replacement.
Maugher has been the owner of the Oregon Route Camera since 2001 and says that his company has a track record of reliability and that the Oregon Cams were always reliable.
Maven, Oregon Road’s president and CEO, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Maunay, the owner and operator of Oregon Road cameras in Arizona and Montana, told Fox he does not plan to take legal action against the Oregon company.
“We’re still looking at the legal ramifications,” Maunays attorney, Joe Schumacher, told The Associated Press on Monday.
He also told Fox, “I do not believe in suing anyone because I believe in our legal system.”
Maughans attorney, Greg Erikson, told ABC News that he will take legal recourse to protect Maugh’s business and his employees.
“Our expectation is that if there is a legal issue with our cameras, they’ll be replaced,” Eriksons attorney said.
The Oregon Road cam company said in a statement that it was notified of the legal action by Oregon Road in October and that it “will continue to work with the State of Oregon and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide the necessary safety measures.”
The Oregon Route Cam has been operating for more years than most cameras and has been used by hundreds of thousands of people across the country, according to the Oregon State Police.
