Electronic Traffic Tickets Are Coming To Ohio

Electronic traffic tickets are coming to Ohio.  The Ohio Supreme Court adopted amendments to the Ohio Traffic Rules about electronic tickets issued by law enforcement to account for an ongoing pilot project.  The Rules will take effect in January to facilitate the use of e-tickets.
