Columbus Drops Challenge Of State Traffic Camera Law

Mar 15, 2016

The City of Columbus has dropped its lawsuit against the state over the law that banned the use of traffic enforcement cameras.

The city dropped the lawsuit last month, saying the camera program is no longer operational and other cities are involved in similar litigation. The system was deactivated last year amid the Redflex bribery scandal at city hall. The law requires a police officer to be present when the cameras detect an infraction. The Ohio Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal of Dayton's challenge of a court decision in favor of the law.
