Prankster puts 'for sale' sign on Ohio traffic cam

Posted: Updated:

NEW MIAMI, Ohio (AP) - A prankster put a "for sale" sign on a southwest Ohio village's speed camera in the aftermath of a judge's order to stop using them.

The sign taped to the camera apparatus listed a price of $1 million. That's the amount that the village of New Miami had collected in 15 months of automated traffic enforcement, according to court arguments heard Tuesday.

Butler County Judge Michael J. Sage ordered a halt to camera use for violations of motorists' due process rights. The village's attorneys indicated it will appeal.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports that a village police officer removed the "for sale" sign from the traffic camera by midmorning Thursday.
