Springfield Red Light Cameras Losing Millions In Revenue
According to an article in TheNewspaper.com, Springfield red light cameras are losing millions of dollars in revenue. Why?
In 2008, the Ohio General Assembly enacted a law requiring all cities using cameras to lengthen the duration of the warning given to motorists approaching a photo enforced intersection. Cities were given until March 12, 2009 to make the change, and the cities that complied saw a dramatic reduction in violations.
“In Springfield, red light cameras have issued automated tickets at ten intersections since 2006. Before the yellow timing law took effect, the city’s for-profit vendor issued an average of 18,185 citations annually. Between 2009 and 2013, warning times increased to between 4.6 and 5.0 seconds at the intersections with cameras, and the average number of tickets issued dropped 63 percent to 6707 citations annually. This plunge represents a net loss of $4.9 million in revenue.” Id.
As has been reported at TheNewspaper.com and on this blog, Dayton has not complied with the law according to research conducted by investigative reporters.
