Teen Drivers Beware – Ohio’s Rules For Obtaining A License

Obtaining a license has changed for teen drivers in Ohio. Teen drivers face a three-step process to obtaining a license. The first step begins when you turn 15 1/2. At this time you may apply for a temporary permit. Then take the drivers license knowledge exam and the eye test.  If you pass, you will receive a confirmation number to present to your local BMV. You are required to bring a copy of your birth certificate and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. When you are  driving with a temporary permit, you must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or licensed driving...

Marked Lane Violation – What Is The Law?

Marked Lane Violation: The Cases of Muller, Thomas, Parker, and Shaffer Quick Answer: When a vehicle crosses a marked lane for reasons other than safety, you are able to pull someone over for a marked lane violation. Each of these cases deals with a traffic stop under Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 4511.33(A)(1) for a marked lane violation that led to arrest on other criminal violations. In general, the law requires drivers to stay, as much as possible, within a single lane and to not move from their lane without first making sure it’s safe to do so.

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...

Commercial Drivers Beware! The Ohio State Highway Patrol joined a week-long effort focused on increasing commercial drivers  tickets. The initiative includes officers with the Michigan State and Indiana State police departments, who will focus on violations by commercial vehicle drivers that are proven to contribute to crashes, including: speed, following too closely, improper passing, distracted driving and improper lane use. The initiative began Monday and runs through Saturday, Dec. 12. This type of enforcement is grant-funded and designed to cause untold problems with truck drivers who depend on their license to earn a living. What makes it particularly ugly is that commercial drivers...

CDL Drivers In Ohio Required to Undergo Human Trafficking Training

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Ohio is the first state to require CDL drivers to take a one hour class in human trafficking. Beginning January 2016, every driver issued a CDL in Ohio will be given a "Truckers Against Trafficking" (TAT) wallet card, and all new drivers will be provided a one-hour training program. Authority over CDL driver licensing varies from state to state, and in Ohio both the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the rules for CDL schools under the Ohio Revised Code come under the authority of the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS). ODPS annually revises topics...

Are DUI Laws A Sophisticated Form Of Gaslighting?

How does "gaslighting" relate to Ohio DUI laws? In the 1944 film Gaslight, Ingrid Bergman's character  Paula Alquist Anton meets and marries the charming Gregory Anton played by Charles Boyer.  The husband does everything in his power to isolate his wife from other people. He allows her neither to go out nor to have visitors, implying that he is doing so for her own good, because her nerves have been acting up, causing her to become a kleptomaniac and to imagine things that are not real. On the one occasion when he does take her out to a musical gathering at...

New Restrictions For Juvenile Drivers In Ohio Begins Today

Beginning July 1, 2015, juvenile drivers issued a probationary license will face restrictions on when they can drive and how many passengers are allowed in the car while driving based on experience instead of age. This change is a result of Ohio’s Drive Toward a Safer Ohio Initiative and is an effort to increase the level of experience for Ohio’s young drivers. “The change in driving times and the passenger restrictions during the first 12 months of driving allows Ohio’s young motorists to gain more experience on the road, while reducing their risks,” said Karhlton Moore, Executive Director of the Office...

A Small Way To Curtail Policing For Profit

Policing for profit is the practice of using the tools of the judiciary (police, municipal courts, probation) to generate revenue for the municipality.  It comes in the form of red-light cameras, speed cameras, license plate readers, speed traps, heavy police traffic enforcement, civil asset forfeitures, high fines and other revenue generating practices. The price of this hidden tax falls most heavily upon the poor who are more likely to find themselves unable to pay and subsequently jailed for minor offenses. It happens here in Ohio and has been addressed by the Ohio Supreme Court. In Ohio, more than 300 "mayor's courts"...
