Speed Camera Scams Still A Thing In Ohio

If you think that Senate Bill 342 banned all speed cameras, you must not have driven through Newburgh Heights. Tucked over off I-77, Newburgh Heights has continued issuing tickets with hand-held devices that don't require officers to pull anyone over to issue a citation. To supplement their budget, they are churning out tickets at the tune of 300 per week. Plenty of folks aren't happy about it but Newburgh Heights doesn't care.  Another Ohio city, Linndale, has built essentially a house with all the comforts of home — so that it can reap the benefits of traffic cameras while some Linndale...

Underage possession or consumption of beer or intoxicants is a serious crime in Ohio. The charges are first-degree misdemeanors carrying a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and up to a $1,000.00 fine.

Fear, shame or guilt may compel you to want to plead guilty to put the charge behind you, but that decision may have long-lasting and unintended consequences.If you are under 21 years old, drinking alcohol is illegal in the State of Ohio. Ohio Revised Code...
