Traffic Camera Program Gets Green Light to Go On
CLEVELAND– The City of Cleveland is resuming its traffic camera program, three weeks after the city’s appeals process was ruled unconstitutional.
The city announced on Wednesday that the enforcement of traffic laws with red light and speed cameras is continuing just as it was before the ruling by the Eighth District Court of Appeals.
In January, the court sided with a Columbus man, who argued that the program was illegal because drivers who wanted to appeal had to go before a city hearing officer and not a municipal court judge, as required by law.
But, the Cleveland Law Department said it concluded that because of several technical issues in the man’s lawsuit, the program is constitutional and can continue.
