Ohio Village speeding ticket blitz

ELMWOOD PLACE, Ohio – This is a warning for drivers who are over-speeding, stay away from Elmwood Place Village in Ohio; this place is not for you.

Since Elmwood Place had its traffic cameras installed, it has been issuing traffic tickets at such a rapid pace. According to Police record, there are approximately 6,600 tickets issued during the initial month which showed that the number of tickets and citations issued was three times more than the residents of the place. Since the cameras started operating last September, the County was able to harvest a whooping amount reportedly around $1.5 million in fines alone.

At least speeding ticket blitz which reaped for its treasury a hefty amount of around $105 worth in citations has economically revived this hard-up village for months. Motorists have filed a petition and released through social media to boycott the village, and a lawsuit is pending claiming a violation in the Constitution.

Village police chief reported that due to the automated traffic, it greatly boosted the revenue of the village and most of all; it made the roads safer as there is now a gadget that helps control speeding.

The hearing of the suit is scheduled next week in the County Court of Hamilton where the pros and the cons of the issue will be heard.

One petitioner, David Downs said that he is aware that money is needed by the Village but using a ticket blitz is wrong to raise funds. Downs who runs the St. Bernard Polishing Co. has his business located a few yards distance from a camera that requires speed limit drops to 25 MPH from 35 MPH. Downs found out that the spree on speeding ticket has negatively affected his business. Most of his customers prefer not to go to his shop due to the risk of being issued a ticket while others are sore as they were already issue citations.

The parish priest of the Catholic Community Church of Our Lady of Layang is a second complainant. Rev. Fr. Chau Pham had 70 of his parishioners issued tickets one day last September. Due to the camera, 1/3 of his Vietnamese congregation are no longer attending his church.

Elmwood Place is in need of funds and this could be a justifiable reason for holding speeding ticket blitz. The median household income of the place is averaging less than 2/3 of Ohio’s stateside figure. Police Chief William Peskin said that automated camera keeps the place safe and saves manpower as they only place one auxiliary officer to watch the area.

Elmwood Place officials openly stated that due to the blitz, they were able to collect almost $1.5 million from tens of thousands of tickets being issued. A cool $105 for a ticket initially is charged from motorists who are caught speeding by the robotic cameras.

The ruling on the lawsuit regarding southwest Ohio village’s use of traffic speed cameras for next month was postponed by the judge has postponed as he wants to hear the entire evidences and data from both the defendants and the petitioners.
