Ohio Supreme Court Hears Toledo Traffic Camera Arguments

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The state Supreme Court has heard arguments for and against an Ohio law that reduces funding for cities that operate traffic camera programs.

The high court has previously issued four rulings backing cities that use cameras to issue tickets for speeding and red-light violations.

The new debate before the court is whether a 2015 law reducing funding for cities using the cameras is constitutional.

An attorney for Toledo told court justices that the state General Assembly thumbed its nose at the court and its earlier decisions by passing the funding restrictions.

An attorney for the state said a lower court judge improperly ruled against the funding law.

A decision isn’t expected for several weeks.
