Columbus to remain free of red light cams despite law change

As of today, red light cameras can enforce the law without a cop present. Yesterday, Ohio law required an officer to be on scene as a way to reserve cameras as a secondary tool. But that was found to be unconstitutional today by Ohio Supreme Court.

Justice Patrick Fischer found that the law contradicted the red light cameras very purpose–to conserve police resources, reports The Columbus Dispatch.

But as of right now, that doesn’t mean much for Columbus as all of the cams have been uninstalled since the regulation was put into place. Plus, the city has no plans of reinstalling them.

City Council has the power to make a decision to fund the rebirth of red light cams here in the city
