COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Supreme Court justices will decide whether traffic camera systems are improperly bypassing courts.
Justices heard arguments Wednesday in the case of a motorist ticketed in Toledo five years ago.
Attorney Andrew of Fremont says cities are usurping the judicial system by making motorists appeal camera-generated citations through city administrative procedures.
He countered arguments by Toledo’s law director and the attorney for Toledo’s camera vendor that motorists can go to court, saying the administrative hearing officers have been given jurisdiction.
Justices quizzed all the attorneys about how the ticketed motorists can appeal.
The justices didn’t announce a timetable for ruling on a case that could impact motorists and municipalities across the state. Toledo and other communities say they increase safety; critics say they are aimed at increasing revenues.
