Scottsdale is turning up the heat on offenders who ignore tickets issued by the city's red light and speed enforcement cameras.

The city has been frustrated by people who dodge process servers to avoid being formally handed the tickets. So it is now asking a judge for permission for so-called alternative service when it hasn't been able to serve the summons after three attempts.

Once the judge approves, the process server can leave the court summons at the driver's home address without a signature.

Scottsdale has used the alternative service 2,800 times since May 2008. This year, the numbers are way up, with about 185 people who dodged service finding notes on their doors each month.
