Traffic Cameras Gain Support

Reducing state funding to local municipalities by the amount those communities collected through the use of traffic cameras doesn’t violate the state Constitution, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled Thursday. The court also upheld the constitutionality of a law requiring that municipalities must pay an advance deposit to cover court costs related to enforcing the ticket program. The court’s unanimous decision found the 2019 law creating those requirements doesn’t conflict with the Ohio Constitution’s provision governing communities’ home rule. The ruling responded to a lawsuit brought by Newburgh Heights and East Cleveland challenging the state requirements.
