Voters in Cleveland, suburb ban traffic cameras

CLEVELAND, Nov. 4, 2014 (AP): Voters in Cleveland and one of its suburbs have overwhelmingly approved measures that will effectively ban the use of traffic cameras in those two cities.

Tuesday's ballot issues in Cleveland and Maple Heights asked voters whether their cities should be required to have police officers present to write tickets for traffic camera violations.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson insisted that the cameras were about safety and not revenue. But he also said budget cuts would be needed if the camera program was eliminated. The cameras have generated more than $5 million for Cleveland this year.

Camera opponents led petition drives in the two cities to get the measures on the ballot. They argued that the existing administrative process for appealing the tickets violates people's constitutional rights.
