Traffic camera suit may impact cities across Ohio

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's Supreme Court will take up a challenge to how a northern Ohio city fines drivers caught on camera.

A state appeals court earlier this year ruled that Toledo had wrongly taken away jurisdiction with its administrative review process for drivers who run red lights or speed.

The attorney who brought the lawsuit says the city is denying drivers their day in court.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo reports that the decision may impact other cities around Ohio that have the red-light and speed cameras.

Attorneys for the city of Toledo say in court filings that the appeals court decision took away cities' rights spelled out in the Ohio Constitution that allow them to create review processes for noncriminal issues.
