Ohio Supreme Court rules against Toledo regarding traffic cameras

Supreme Court overrules previous decision

The Ohio Supreme Court has unanimously decided to reverse all lower courts decisions related to the operation of traffic cameras.

Case documents released Wednesday state the trial court lacked authority to enjoin enforcement of the

spending provisions relating to traffic cameras enacted in H.B. 64 because no action

has been filed challenging their constitutionality and no court has found them


The Ohio Supreme Court adds the trial court abused its discretion when it enjoined enforcement of spending provisions as punishment for contempt.

Accordingly, the court reverses the judgment of the Sixth District Court of Appeals, vacate the contempt order and dissolve the injunction entered as

punishment for that contempt.
