CIVIL RIGHTS UPDATE: Ohio Judge Orders Traffic Cameras Confiscated. “Ruehlman ruled March 7 that the 2012 Elmwood Place ordinance that allowed cameras and other equipment to be used to measure the speed of cars and ticket speeders without pulling them over was unconstitutional. At that time, he ordered a stop to the speeding camera program the village was using. The program brought them more than $1 million in revenue while it operated. Despite that, evidence at Thursday’s hearing showed, Maryland-based Optotraffic LLC that runs the speed camera program for Elmwood Place, continued to issue speeding citations, run the equipment and collect speeding fines. Elmwood Place received 60 percent of the revenue from those speeding fines.”
