Judge to village: No cameras

A southwestern Ohio judge yesterday ordered a halt to a speeding-ticket blitz in a village that installed traffic cameras, saying it’s a scam against motorists.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman blasted the cameras and the thousands of $105 citations that resulted. He ruled that they violate motorists’ constitutional rights to due process and said the village’s enforcement was stacked against drivers.

Elmwood Place is engaged in nothing more than a high-tech game of 3-Card Monty, Ruehlman wrote, referring to a card game used by con artists. It is a scam that motorists can’t win — via redwolf.newsvine.com
