Ohio: Rossford one step closer to using handheld speed cameras (dragon cams) in city limits

From downtown Rossford to I-75, Rossford’s mayor says speeding is a problem in his city.

One way he plans to fight the issue is by arming officers with handheld speed cameras.”If we could just get people to slow down a little bit it makes us safer, and if we’re safer that makes us better,” said Rossford mayor Neil MacKinnon.

“If you don’t want to get a ticket, and you don’t want to pay a fine, then don’t speed,” said MacKinnon.

MacKinnon says city leaders have discussed bringing cameras to city limits for months. Monday, city council voted in favor to enter an agreement with Redflex Traffic Systems to provide the services.
