New Ohio lawsuit targets traffic cameras in Dayton



Published: Tue, March 25, 2014 @ 12:45 p.m.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The city of Dayton has become the latest front in the legal assault on traffic cameras in Ohio.

Attorneys representing drivers filed a lawsuit today in Montgomery County. Dayton attorney Tom Manning was joined by the Cincinnati-based firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates, which has won court rulings against camera use in the southwest Ohio villages of New Miami and Elmwood Place.

The new lawsuit raises the same issues as earlier cases — charging that the automated traffic enforcement for speeding and red lights is an unconstitutional violation of due process rights and that the city’s system improperly bypasses the courts.

A lawsuit against cameras in the city of Toledo is pending before the Ohio Supreme Court. Supporters say traffic cameras stretch police resources and make communities safer.

Agreed. If anyone believes these were made to "make communities safer", then they're only fooling themselves. It's all about money and always has been.
