New bill would pretty much guarantee death of red light cams

So the general consensus is red light cameras are the devil, yeah? Well then you can all make a sacrificial offering to House Bill 410 which will, if passed, pretty much guarantee Ohio cities will never implement them again.

While the bill doesn’t put restrictions on the cameras themselves, it would put some serious monentary disadvantages on cities who have them.

Specifically, municipalities with camera programs would generate less money from moving traffic violations caught on the camera than in municipalities without cameras in two ways:

  • Municipalities would receive less money from the state fund in the amount it takes in from traffic camera violations (cleveland.com)
  • All civil traffic violations would be filed in municipal courts instead of mayor’s courts (cleveland.com)

The bill passed in the House (65-19) and will not be sent to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
