Judge bans speed cameras, calls them 'a scam' against drivers3/9/2013
Imagine that — another legal challenge to those cameras intended to snare speeders. Only this time, a judge has ruled in favor of motorists. Calling the speed cameras in the small Ohio village of Elmwood Place "a scam," Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman ruled they were unconstitutional. He hammered the village, writing that it was "engaged in nothing more than a high-tech game of 3-Card Monty." The hamlet of about 2,000 residents had issued 6,600 citations (at $105 a pop) in the first month after the cameras were installed last September. The village has netted more than $1 million in revenue from the cameras, which it splits with the company that operates them. [Source]
