Traffic cameras in Ohio legislature’s crosshairs, again

While everyone was concentrating on a hike in the gas tax this week, legislation that would curtail traffic cameras merged right into that lane.

Drafting behind the gas tax and a hike in funding for public transit are provisions that again take aim at local traffic cameras in Ohio by limiting their profitability in communities that use them. The bill passed the Ohio House of Representatives Thursday and is headed to the Ohio Senate.
