Some surveillance cameras in the state are under scrutiny.
A few more speeding cameras have gone dark in Ohio, after the latest in a string of court rulings against automated traffic enforcement.
In Butler County last week, a judge ordered one village to pull the plug on enforcement cameras, saying motorists’ due process rights were being violated.
Another judge called the cameras a scam. Appellate rulings have gone against cameras in Toledo and Cleveland.
The Ohio Supreme Court upheld traffic cameras in a 2008 Akron case. Camera-using cities are looking to the high court for a ruling in the Toledo case to turn the recent tide back.
