According to an article in TheNewspaper.com, Springfield red light cameras are losing millions of dollars in revenue.

Ohio Senate Votes To Ban Traffic Cameras

As many regular readers of this blog already know, I have made it my mission to speak out against traffic cameras and speed cameras since their introduction.  I consider them to be corrupt and corrupting.  They are the worst example of turning the criminal justice system (and the citizens) into a source of revenue.Today the Ohio Senate passed legislation that will effectively ban traffic cameras statewide.  The law would require that a police officer be on the scene to issue the ticket.  This would require a tremendous amount of money for departments to "staff" the cameras.  The legislation passed the...
