The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments this week about traffic cameras, though that doesn't signal a stop yet to the growing legal challenges to their use in ticketing motorists for running red lights or speeding.
The Ohio Municipal League has said the case against Toledo's cameras could affect "every Ohioan who drives or owns a vehicle." The justices will hear those arguments Wednesday.
And a legal expert says the case goes beyond cameras and is as a balance-of-power test between executive and judicial branches.
