TRAFFIC CAMERAS-TEMPORARY BOOM
Traffic cameras helped Ohio village speed up spending before judge shut them off

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, May 4, 2014 11:39 AM EDT
HAMILTON, Ohio


Traffic cameras helped a southwest Ohio village speed up its spending before a judge's order against cameras.

New Miami bought new cars, trucks and equipment before a Butler County judge's February order to shut off speed cameras. The Middletown-Hamilton Journal-News reports that village spending from its general fund increased by roughly $430,000 in 2013. That was the only full year the cameras were in use.

Some $210,000 went to vehicles including two 2013 Dodge Chargers and a 2013 Dodge Ram for police.

An outgoing councilman says the ticket revenue allowed long-needed upgrades that the working-class village hadn't been able to afford.

Common Pleas Judge Michael Sage ruled in favor of motorists who charged that the cameras violated their constitutional rights to due process.
