Cincinnati judge orders all speed cameras confiscated, manufacturer held in contempt

(NaturalNews) Chalk one up for privacy, at least in one part of the country.

Traffic cameras have been a part of the urban scenery for years now, but in Elmwood Place - a suburb of Cincinnati - they are history. Finally.

In a recent court hearing, Judge Robert Ruehlman ordered them not only to be shut off but to be impounded - taken off the streets for good.

The ruling comes as a result of a contentious legal battle over the speed cameras. Both sides of the case were back before Ruehlman during a contempt hearing June 27, "where the judge ruled that Elmwood Place and the speed camera contractor Optotraffic were in contempt of court," WLWT reported.

Red light cameras would make for good target practice....

just sayin'...not suggestin'...that would be wrong.

But it would send a message to those in government that think Big Brother has every right to exploit their rights for money.

Why would anyone pay to have more tickets.

I've never understood why citizens would want their government to give them more tickets.
