Default Ohio Town Cannot Survive Without Speed Camera Revenue

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/64/6420.asp

Monetary concern drives New Miami challenge to speed camera ruling before the Ohio Supreme Court.

"The village of New Miami told the Ohio Supreme Court last week that its "fiscal integrity" would be compromised if a lawsuit succeeds in stopping the use of speed cameras. In January, the state Court of Appeals sided with motorists who challenged the constitutionality of the one-square-mile speed trap town's photo radar program (view ruling). To avoid paying the resulting $3 million in refunds, New Miami is begging the high court for relief.

"The village now faces financial ruin should the Twelfth District's overly restrictive reading of the sovereign immunity statutes be allowed to stand, and the matter proceed to final judgment," New Miami attorney James J. Englert wrote."

I suspect there's more of this going on than we are aware of. It's not so much about preventing accidents, it's becoming a source of income.
