Ohio Supreme Court rules against city of Toledo regarding red light cameras

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled against the city of Toledo when it comes to the use of red light cameras.

This has been quite the saga over the past couple years for the Glass City. 

Red light cameras are traffic cameras that have the ability to take a picture and flash when a driver runs a red light. 

Drivers will then get a ticket in the mail ordering them to pay a fine for the violation.

The city of Toledo was challenging a law put in place that reduced the amount of money it got from the state because of the use of these cameras.

Just last year, the court sided with Toledo on allowing the use of this technology without an officer present. 

But while that decision was being appealed, a new law was passed requiring local governments to report the revenue collected from camera-issued tickets. 

Then, that money was deducted from the amount the city got from the state. 

City of Toledo attorneys were trying to say this was unconstitutional, but the court unanimously ruled in favor of the law and against Toledo.
